Default which boombox?

I have to admit to being intimidated by reading hundreds of pages...

Is there a list somewhere of what are suitable boomboxes or other which have the right innards? I saw the first post making reference to JVC RC-EZ31. I have seen reference to JVC RC-EZ51. Are there others?

Default Jvc rd-ez11j

What about that one? That seems to be the current version/naming in the US for the JVC offerings. Anyone look inside that one? It's cheap enough...

I think the only way to see if this would be suitable or not is to try and get hold of a service manual online from somewhere, then see if it contains the same boards as the other two.

Failing that the only way is to buy one and take a chance I think.

schro20,
please let me know if you buy the rd-ez11j, I found out about this myself and have been unable to find the 31 or 51. I saw the 11j but I have a feeling that it is not going to contain the same parts, but here is to hoping.

I tried finding a service manual, but to no avail.

It's cheap enough that I would be willing to just pick one up and tear it apart. It'll be fun and educational no matter what I find!

I am going to give this a few days to see whether someone has already bothered to do this. But suppose I go ahead, is there some place that lists what I would hope to be finding?

A very quick check is to see will it read MP3s on a disc. If it does then its a different PCB.

Hi Peter,
This one seems promising, apparently it doesn't support MP3 playback so it might in fact have the right chipset for the Shigaclone. Guess we will have to wait and see.
