Default Levinson No 39 Philips CDM12 Transport

Hi There,

After a couple of Wadia's and a Krell with KSS151A and Philips CDM9 Pro laserunits/transports I acquired a Levinson No. 39 with a Philips CDM12 Industrial transport that's much easier to get when I need a replacement.
Only thing is that I'm not really sure if I can swap the CDM12 Ind. (completely with the diecast body and printboard) for the CD-Pro2LF module (VAU1254/31LF). I read on several fora and other websites that this CD-Pro2LF is completely backwards compatible but I'm not quite sure if I won't run into trouble when I try to swap them.
I probably won't get the information from the Harman Audio Specialties Group the owner of Levinson so I'll try it here.
The No. 39 sounds great directly on my ML-2's so I'm willing to invest in a new CDM12 Ind. derivate like the latest CD-Pro2LF.
I can get it in Germany or one of the Jukebox spare/reapir facilities in the States.

Thanks in advance!

No need to cross the border, you can order it from Nico Thevissen in Limboland

I already mailed Nico!
Saw a couple of days ago that this No. 39 has already the CD PRO2M transport.
First I'm gonna try to switch the OPC (Laser Pickup) itself with a specific laserunit if that works or doesn't I'll let you all know.

The motor in the CD PRO2M is a Mabuchi RF300 brushtype unit costing 2 dollars a piece. In the CDM9 there was a brushless type.

Player sounds great directly on my pair of ML-2's though and Levinson wrapped it in a beautiful slidermechanism.

Thanks for the replies, keep you posted.
