After putting the thing together again, building a solid chassis for it and putting the original short flat cable in, i still had the skipping problem.

So i made a platter adjustment tool ( same as Peter's ).

Raising the platter about 0,5mm did the job.

The help of the lock indicator was also very useful ( blue led from Buffalo DAC in background ).

So now i can continue tests with longer cable and electronics board away from motors......
Hi CeeVee,
could you measure the height so others can check it also!
Maybe the distance between the lower platter and the motor case top.

software is sprint PCB Layout...cheap and perfect for audio


Sprint-Layout

Very easy to use.
Anyway you have the gerbers in zip file.

the height between JVC pcb and transport chassis is 19mm...i would say plenty of space for this little board with output cap vertical and 3W resistor with breathing room.

The shadow of the mini-PiTbull is up and running clear ...litterally...

I ditched the magnet and the platform and had still a 100 percent (dearly paid in the past) puck/platform combo....a winner.

Slight disadvantage is that it now takes a bit more trouble exchanging lasers....(in previous situation a matter of seconds) but you can live with that...

Due to the bettered lay-out I am in need of a longer display lint...anyone a link and ser. number....pretty please with sugar on top....

Default cable tv coaxial with F connector?

So should I buy a (semi) audiophile cable cut off the end and install a F connector?
I just measured several cables with F connectors, and I got .2 ohms.
What shiga to DAC cables are you using? generic, expensive, stuff that does measure 75 ohms with a multimeter?
please see picture to see if I've got it right!?

Thanks,
Paul

If all works well I should have a ez31 in a couple of weeks. One of the guys over at head-fi is helping get it to me. My wife thinks I'm nuts for buying a perfectly good boom box and tearing it apart just to make a cd player. This will actually turn into two projects for me. I'm planning to add an ipod dock to what's left of the box and use it on my toolbox at work. Win Win for me.

After a few hours I could make a strongly improved lay out.(with advice of my audio-buddy Anton)...although the display-cable still remains too short...
