hi,
Now that you can wire in a new cd platter, what would you say is a better one than we are currently using? AND where can these be had?
Thanks for the pics,Erik!

The Sanyo mechs are available on eBay for less than $10.

Erik, what about the long ribbon cable?

To answer both questions again..

The platter is still the same as the one out of the boombox with a difference being the laser end-switch. This time mounted directly underneath.
Enabling you to avoid mechanical stress and all kinds of nasty interferences by taking loose and relocating the electronic board...!!

This I found a "major" tweak...

If you only want to put the board loose/underneath you can still use the standard lint....if any further you need a longer lint...


For my PiTbull I even went as far as making my own alu laser board and laser-guide-rail which gave as much a pleasant upgrade as implementing an expensive clock/powersupply.

The standard board is very poor quality and magnetic...but let us not forget we still talk about a few euro's for a complete nice transport...biggest bang in High End History !!

BTW
I spotted the units for 25 dollars on the internet
Mine came with a long(er) lint...I had a choice

well it rides again after the inferno of ic 903,I know it's not pretty but I'll fix it soon,the nice thing about it is The chip gets warm,but not hot with no heat sink,dip was all I could find and the pins were different,maybe my name should have been Murphy,lol. ,I measured 98 degrees and it doesn't get confused like it did sometimes before it smoked,runs great and sounds good I had been using a pioneer cd player and I can tell I missed it,
Well I couldn't stand the puck wobbling anymore so I trimmed it down some and I use silicone based caulking to seat the magnet in side the puck,it can move a good bit inside so it's not centered,I cut the edges to the magnet size and balanced it again with a model airplane balance jig,IT don't wobble no more and the cd runs true,still want to dump the magnet ,it's strong enough to influence the laser head,,,,,,,,
Thanks Peter D. for all those nice pics you took ,it did help to know where the wire' s went even though the pinout turned out to be different,
Cheers!

I managed to implement the seperate Laserboard into the Mini-PiTbull....well hearing is believing (for me again)....lots and lots of extra detail in your music and dead silences between the notes.....music smooth as silk.

Again extra work but ...ooooohhhhh....so worth it ....
