Hah!

I didn't know they made them either until I found this one in a thrift store here a couple weeks ago. It's a good 15 years old though, and I don't think they made them anymore.

Daaaamn. I wish that was the one I found!

Mine is a DA-410cx, though. Probably the cheapest of the bunch, though I've heard it retailed for around $500 back in the day, which ain't bad. It actually sounds pretty nice, and is built well too. I'm thinking it might be a good candidate for some modifications, since all the components are through-hole rather than surface-mount, everything is labeled well, and the main PCB has a convenient layout.

Notice how the word ceramic pops up all the time.
Kyocera - "cera" get it ? was really packing these things with ceramics to, I guess, promote the use of same.
I think they even had some speaker drivers?....

Default CD players

These were good CD players before Kyocera abandoned the consumer electronic product line. Like one of the other poster's above, I pick up some of these from time to time for parts and their nice chassis, which have wood panels on the sides. I opened up a few of their bottom of the line players (310's) and didn't see anything great inside, but the higher end ones should be better.
