Ha. Now there are "More than 10 available", when earlier it looked like there were only 12 available. I decided to take a chance as well and bought 2.

I contacted the seller identified by Tibi in post 7171. I asked if he had a 16 pin version of the one shown in Tibi's link. He responded with this

SF P101N 16 Pin Mechanism Original New Sanyo Laser Lens SFP101N 16 Pin | eBay

but that's the one that "everybody" has (and the one I had already bought myself).

I contacted the seller as well for 29 dollar I can buy a second one and he ships the two via Express...less likely to pay at the door extra money like taxes...so I took the leap...

@dimkasta Very nice indeed!!! What about to seal the transformer in a wood brick, something like jarek do with capacitors?should not be something difficult to achieve
looking forward to your project development

This is something I am considering. Wooden routed brick, internally shielded with copper tape (connected to ground to provide further shielding) and the transformer sealed inside.

The only problem is that serviceability goes out the window...

Incidentally, I am waiting for a new custom-made transformer that I specifically requested not to be stabilised with resin, so I can insert a piece of wood in the center, and fill the remaining space with beeswax. Talk about convergence of minds

Enclosing a trafo completely in wood/wax might turn out not to be such a great idea as it could potentially lead to trafo overheating problems - both wood and wax are excellent thermal insulators. But with a good (low-loss) trafo it might just work.

Default JVC boombox

Hi guys, I did hear a clone. The source was JVC RCEZ51, and I was very impressed by the quaility of the transport. It is impossible to find RCEZ31 or 51. What do you think about RC-ST1, it is using LA9242M and LC78601RE chips as well, but the motor driver is different: LA6541. Thanks, Jnos PS: I just have found this: THE JVC RC-ST1 is the SAME as EZ31 ( has the same IC'S) but is more difficult to mod because all the stuff is on 1 single PCB. # 5846.

And what about the JVC RC-ST3? It is using LA9242M and LA6541 chips. But there is a LC78622 DSP chip (with Digital out) instead of LC78601?
