Default Philips/Marantz CD transport locks

I 've picked up my bargain Marantz CD50 to give this 1541 thing a try - although the player itself is in exrtremely good nick - it didn't come with transport locks for the old CDM4.

It seems to have survived the journey home on the floor of the car and is playing OK at the moment but I would like to get hold of a pair of locks for it's next and subsequent journeys!

From memory, my old philips players from the 80's had the same sort of locks - I think they were red plastic bayonet fitting things.

So .................... does anyone know a source of these? Anyone have a spare set knocking about? (long shot!)

thanks for any help guys

You will have better luck looking for Rocking Horse manure !!!

I have many CDPs and 1 set of locks.


Good luck.

Yeah - I figured as such!!

Damned annoying - esp. since there is actually a storage point for them on the underside of the player!! ......................... no more than 3 inches from where they would have been removed from !!! -

I don't think you're missing out on much... even with the transport "locked" the swing arm is free to move about and hit the end stops.

I've had many Philips/Marantz players shipped to me - all without the locks - and have never had any damage to the cdm mechanism.

really? - oh well in that case!!

I just always assumed that the swing arm would be the part that was 'locked' !!! - if the arm isn't - then what is? - the whole suspended mech perhaps?

Fair play, I don't think the seller can a had much of an idea about its potential!!

Are you considering any mods?
