Thanks Jose,

cool link, but I need a separated controller which is independent from any other parts (like difficult psu, etc)

You may try the one posted at diyparadise or the one build by Martin (he has a really nice CD player too).
I guess these two links are pretty well known but anyway it is worth checking which functions/features are available in each case...

Thanks Sidy,

I already know these two links, and I already bought one from Diyparadise, but I guess the PIC contains few bugs. Unfortunately sometimes freezing the display randomly and I have to turn it off-on.

About the Martin's stuff:
Very nice project, but I don't like the switched psu (this is my private opinion only)

Have you more any idea?

Many thanks!

The SMPS is only used for the controller, LCD and relays. All the critical analog power supplies are much nicer. If you still object, you can easily substitute any other 12V supply if you fabricate your own boards or if he starts selling them.

There's also a kit available at hifidiy. You get a case, a remote + linear supply, and of course the display and the controller. I'm not a big fan of the oscillator they use though (a TCXO with synthesized PLL).

Thanks error401 for pointing that out!
The SMPS was chosen for its low power consumption during standby. Actually I replaced the SMPS in my CD-player by a linear PS because, even it is only used for the controller/display/relays, it produced just a bit too much high frequency noise I could not get rid of.

As error401 stated, replace the SMPS with whatever 12V/1A power supply you like best.

If I ever find the time to produce some boards/kits I will do some redesign on the power supply.
