Default Magnavox CD 2000: a Philips NOS CDP from 1989

Recently purchased this unit (from a fellow DIYer) which seems to be quite an obscure model. Weirdly, the decoder (SAA7210) feeds a TDA1543 w/o DF; this is strange as most late-1980's Philips (and other manufs') CDPs were at least 4x OS. This is a bare-bones CDP, but is well-constructed otherwise: CDM4/19, decent PCB layout, OK cap quality. BUT ... output (I/V) section is cheap, and the chassis is partly plastic, like CD650 and others. Some even-cheaper Philips units from the same period, like the AK6xx, series were 2X OS (avoid the AK6xx in the used mktplace) .
The CD 2000 is supposed to be identical to the CDB49x.
Lots of room inside for mod projects, as shown in 1st image below. Last image is the CD 2000 sitting atop a CDB-650.

No real comment on SQ. FWIW, it does have that "romantic" NOS tinge.

I have the exact same model here to do the mod.

Tried with piggyback 4 X 1543, but didn't get a good result.
