The 'B' means Black, and it's not important.

If you are not able to find JVC EZ31 model, find some other cheap stereo with similar chips, same mechanism and digital output. Chances are, it will sound equally good.

EZ35 has different chips and no digital output on board (like with EZ31). However, it may be possible to extract the output directly from one of the chips. One of them is LC7869 0N

EZ35

Bingo..

Brand new for $85.00 with shipping from:

http://www.savinglots.com/lotprod.asp?item=RCEZ31


I bought one.. Can't wait to get started on this project.. It will be just like my $150 dac project, ultimately ending up costing something like 3 - 4 X that amount by the time it is done..

Hi Tim,
You just need to give it a .pdf extension and all will be well. I renamed the download to cd_transport.pdf when the save option popped up and was then able to open it.

More comments later if I find any errors. Good work and thanks for sharing. My RC-EZ31 is on its way, now to demolish it before my wife sees it.
