Default CDM 12 toploader modification

I have the Steinmusic CDM12 with the drawer. How do you modify it for toploading?

Also, where is the I2S output on this unit?

Hi,

I visited Holger Stein last friday. He showed me how to remove the drawer. You have to push a pin somwhere on the drawer and the whole thing comes out. It is very easy. If you want to know for sure why don't you write him an e-mail?

Greetings
Jan

There is a switch in the mechanism wich has to be pressed so the electronics know the drawer is "closed"

Nathan,

Which version did you buy? (the standard, the standard with modification or the cdx 3).

Did you already listen to it?

Perhaps you have some pictures?

What are your plans with this player?

Regards,
Jan

Hi

In the CEC top loaders this (tiny) switch is activated by closing the top cover - might give inspiration.

I ordered a CDM12 at Stein, will start next project soon

regards

Mattyo5,

That's a great translator, a bit weird to read but still way better than my Japanese language knowledge. Hai!

Anyway, there is lot's of info. I found a few other japanese site's as well which explain a lot.

I guess it is a good idea to dismantle the complete cdm 12 down to the part which carries the the motor and the laser and mount it in a solid, heavy wooden or metal plate. Or am I wrong?

Greetings
Jan
