He also pointed out that newer portable, rugged CD players commonly use higher word coding lasers.

After thorough web search(Google, Copernic, Sony's site), I found very little info and no specification whatsoever...
I did found the KSS-213F that comes with a nice dust protection cap and also saw the existence of KSS-213V.

Recently, an electronic tech who does repairs, told me that KSS-213B was the best of the whole lot and that some KSSs could not be used in disrespective machines...

Any better clue?

Thanks

I have something to add about KSS-213E that usually passes unnoticed. Under the lens and on top of the "hole" where the mirror/prism, laser diode and photodiode are placed, there is a small transparent glass (or plastic) square cover that prevents dust from entering and settling down in the mirror. I havenít found this feature in any other KSS pickup. I found this highly interesting, since these pickups are 100% cleanable, not just the lens, but the insides too.

To see it and clean it one must remove the top black cover, and then slip a slim q-tip between the iron frame in order to reach the glass. I think that all KSS-213E players that came for repair to me where fixed just cleaning both lens and glass.

But beware, Iím talking about ORIGINAL pickups included in Sony compact HiFi and alike sold in the late nineties and first 2000. Iím sure that clone pickups will not carry this protective glass.

On the other hand, why itís so difficult (or impossible) to find optical pickup datasheets? Any brand... Itís so easy for other electronic components, but not for pickups.
