Default Sony CDM-14-5BD20

According to the service manual of my CD player, the CD Mech is a
Sony CDM-14-5BD20. Does anyone have any idea about where I can get a spare?
Yes I do know that Sony mechs usually come with a KSM prefix. But this one is CDM-14-5BD20. It could be a different name for a KSM mech. If so, which KSM mech is it?

Thanking you in advance.

Rameish,

Perhaps we can help you if you give us the Sony type number of the player.

Netlist,

It's a Rotel RCD-991AE CD player.

This CD Mech/Loader is also used by Arcam.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I did some phone calls without succeeding.
Others might come up with something, could you take a picture?

Hi, in the well known CD-DAC list Rotel RCD-991 is listed with KSS-213B sony mechanism. It seems to be supported by an other post I found.

HTGuide Forum - Rotel RCD 991 AE
HTGuide Forum - RCD-991AE vs. RCD-991

However, I did not find anything why KSS-213B is called differently if, identical to
CDM-14L.
Hope it helps!

The KSS213 is the laser assy as used in the Sony CDM14-BD25 which was the OEM offering from SONY that Arcam, Musical Fidelity, TALK Electronics etc used - If you are trying to replace the laser ( because it is worn out then the laser assy has it's replacement number on a label on it - KSS***) - The BD20 was not a variant that I am aware of though I doubt it was significantly different to the BD25 - hope this helps

As it happens I have been looking for a spare mechanism for a Rotel RCD991 too! The RCD991 does not use the KSM213 as listed elsewhere on the web, rather it uses the BU-5BD20 and the only source of this I have found so far is used mechanisms from old Sony players including CDP-XE200/300/400/500/210/310. According to their service manuals these all use the CDM-14 loading mechanism, so the whole thing can be replaced easily. The Sony CDP761 also uses the BU-5BD20 as used in the Rotel. I hope this helps.

Philips mechanism CDM14 with optical pick up SONY KSS-213 ??
This I had never heard before.

Philips CDM14 linear CD mechanism - DutchAudioClassics.nl

By Sony's base unit (BU) numbering there are not helpful informations on the web but in several service manuals.
