I got the first sound from my 1002 tonight! Its got the Mick F output stage bypass and the original power supply rehoused until the budget allows for a linear supply.
I've no experience of high end players to judge it against, but it is without doubt the best sounding sub 25 pound CD player I've ever heard.
Many thanks to all for the info and a special thanks to Mick F and his splendid photos.

Thanks mrskinny for taking the time to post the pics. FYI I use http://photobucket.com/ to keep my pics and resize them for message boards. Its free and been using it for years.

I have a ACM in my 1001 and a BAM in my psone. I have a 7501, but I forget which laser it is but looks like this. I'm thinking it must be the ADM or AEM. Do you know which one comes in the 9001?

Congrats john, I only been having mine up and running for a little over a week and am loving it too. For the price and the small form factor you can't beat this player.

Hi
The SCPH1002 with a BAM assembly
is my favourite. Since the Psone BAM
does not experience PSU heat and was
the last unit made it should perform
best of all. Certainly better than a used
1996 ACM or the ill fated AAM.
If you don't want to cut the 1001/2
housing the old black acm/aam covers
should fit. I had an ADM in a 5502
with broken gear problems and a AEM
in a dead 9002 which had been trodden on.
So swapped the laser transport base. Used
the 5502 laser and it worked fine till I
got to three spots on the cd that always
stutter. Lesson is to make sure the outer tracks
work well too. On the lookout for AEM/ADM bases
no motors necessary but good clear guides and
always hope for cheap PsOnes with BAM transports
to go in my other 4 1002. See you can get extension
cables to use BAMs in 550x units but may need to
glue on extensions rather than hack them off as in
the 900x to 100x fitting !

regards

AnthonyPT

right, i just finished reading the whole thread (took me the better part of yesterday, and all of this morning, good job im ill....).
i have an spch 1002 and a unspecific psx coming in the post. eventually i want to modify it to the extreme.

a couple of questions though:

as i have dc blocking caps in my pre-amp, can i take the signal straight from the dac to the rca jacks? whats the purpose of putting a resistor to ground? casting off gain?

what kind of switches work best for mounting inside a new chassis for playback control? push to make? rocker? i will probably only need to use play/pause.

does anyone know a good source for 'vinyl dye' in the uk?

thanks in advance!

(i must admit, im a bit exited, the spch 1002 should be arriving any time soon...)

well i was expecting the scph 1002 to come when the delivery van pulled up... turns out that the mystery psx i was expecing arrived instead, and its an scph 1001! now its time to look for a 110v tranny......... the transport is the one with the metal sliders too.
cant wait to get it up and running, got a lot of dust to clean out first...

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the PSUs can be converted to an other voltage, if I remember correctly. It's been almost a year i posted in this topic.

Maybe it's just a matter of removing two diodes to make the input half-wave only. I don't remember what the exact differences are.
