Smile Marantz CD-65 Mark II

Hello everyone,
I am new to the whole CD player modification scene, and i would like some tips.
I have a standard (un-modified) Marantz CD-65 Mark II, and it sounds pretty good. (16bit twin DAC)
I'm wondering:
-is this a good cd player model
-are there any modifications i can do to it

Thanks

If my memory serves me correctly - the CD-65 Mk2 was a TDA1541 based player - one of the most popular and long-lived of DAC's - so look for the TDA1541 threads. the CD-65 was a pretty well respected player in it's day and with a few mods can be a damn good one still - not sure about the mech it had - probably a CDM4.

do a search for a HUGE thread on the Philips CD650 player, another TDA1541 player - your player will respond to most, if not all the mods mentioned there.

there are loads of mods for these 1541 players and they respond extremely well to them!!

once you start though - there's often no stopping!! - good luck

Well I found a few threads, such as this one, Philips CD650 mods
where do you get the components and such to put in, eBay or something?

There seems to be many places in Aus. to get components.

I would avoid Ebay (especially Chinese / HongKong ) as there are many fakes around.
European sites are better.

PS the only place I know in Aus. is Oatley Electronics.

Wow. Me too.

I have just bought the same (65mkII) player... and intend to use it as my modding-101 lesson over the next few years. (I'm noob). I already have a fair understanding of physics/electronics ... so once I can solder nbetter I intend to NOS mod it... and build a new output stage for it.... as well as new power supplies/regs for everything. Fun times ahead.
