Yes, I ended up just swapping that part. The laser board looked slightly different to the original (I am using an older Alba as the donor) so I didn't risk changing the whole unit.
LOOK NO MAGNET!!

Audio1st - I wish I had your building skills - that transport looks The Bizzo! Love the green display as well - very retro-cool. I'd love to get a red one like that. Was the chassis achieved by hollowing out a chopping board? If so what did you use to achieve the hollowing out?

Thanks,

- John

Hi John, I used a router to the bottom of the board and just removed the minimal amount to keep the weight.
Did you say red? Well I did find a second Alba at a boot sale, just finished that one yesterday.

..... HOW many CD players do you have? hahaha! That's lovely! I actually meant a red LED display, but that red paintjob is spectacular. You should sell these chassis on Ebay - I'm sure they'd be extremely popular!

So.... which one sounds the best?

Thanks John, I seem to be really enjoying the red one at the moment, it seems to make you want to sing along . It must be the original crystal and C906 in that one

Ahaaaaaaa! Yep I'm with you on that one! Next week you'll be able to try both crystals - will be interested to hear what you think.
