Default Next "group-project" ?

I have a dream....(or am I "high"?)
Would it be possible to make a "universal" CD-controller (w. remote), as building-blocks?
The thing I had in mind would be able to control most (f.ex) Philips Lasers, with chip-sockets (for different controller chip), or by microprocessor?
And I2S connection....

How about use the NEC multispin series CDROM?
You can buy them on ebay at very low price,
and that CDROM already have a small LCD screen.

The mechanism part is stronger than lots of today's CDROM.

Default About controllers...

I was thinking most on the older Philips units...(single-beam-lasers).

Question What about....

Here's an option I saw on another site... Granted its for jukeboxes, but, they'll sell parts...
Happ Controls

If you go under amusement and jukeboxes you'll find parts for jukeboxes including replacements for CDM4 units. The transport itself is a Sanyo unit, but I can't find any details on it. It looks like the transport is just the laser and motor, but would it be that hard to figure out the rest of the parts? (They do also sell the CD-PRO2, but it's more expensive than daisy, I think)

If anybody can come up with some details, I'd be interested to hear them!

Default Hmmm

-thaught I could stir up this discussion some more...

Have you thaught about that it might not be the transport/laser you are "listening" at, but the control circuit, error-correction,...and so on.

Have anybody looked in to any preffered "chip" to go with the transport?

(BTW; SteinMusic use the SAA7310 digital decoder, as have Meridian done). Considered good by some...
Other canidates?
