These are just the two models that I can easily get in the Philippines.

Thanks.
I was not able to find information on the RC-EZ53H in English, but the RC-EZ37V is a definite no go. Any product that supports MP3 and ID tags uses a more recent chipset with a very different internal architecture.

The RC-EZ31, 32 and 51 have the correct chipset family for use in a Shigaclone.

...and the finished product...that is to say this is still the inner display....the idea is to get a coinsize-like display with depth...so another long piece of ebony will be used to mount on top of this display together with 2 buttons (play and stop) and the TOC switch...

Erik,

You grow hair where no man dares to go.

It is wonderful to see creation at work.

Default Hey there........................

I read a few posts back about people being concerned about the longevity of the laser/motors.

I ended-up finding a UK source for the laser/motor assembly- and it cost me about $16USD- shipped. I had the same concern being that I plan to sink a bit of money into this- and don't want to see my investment wasted in a few years.

To those of you who think that nobody would want to keep digital equipment for that long, I would remind you that there are audiophiles out there still using their Wadia Digimasters!

Anyway, perhaps it's my personality, but I like to have backups.
