Default Philips CD-209: Info available?

I have seen a Philips CD-209 toploader and could buy it, but I cannot find any information on the net.

It would be interesting to know what DAC and what transport type is inside.

Every info is welcome!
Franz

So, it would be interesting? I don't know the cdm2p. Is it a good transport?

I should pay about 25 Euro for this player.

Still not shure, if I should buy it or better focus on my actual project, as I own already a few players...

Uuuups, I was wrong: it's a CD-207.

I bought it for less than 20 Euro. Works fine, for the first check.

Just as I thought, I have one of these too

Think its in the loft, comes with a great story ...

I got it on ebay from south wales (500 miles away but was visiting the area the following weekend). I got there to collect it and it had been the guys father in laws, part of a collection he had as he was into 'hifi'. Quite a nice feeling beeing able to say its going to a good home. Anyway he was really pleased and said " I have another philips its broke and was going to the skip - but seen as you are into this stuff maybe you can take it and fix it ?"

"yes sure I can at least try"

he then left the room and brought me a nice shiny CD100 with all the manuals And let me have it - for nothing at all.

Hi,

Nice players you have there

I'm sure one of those must be in the London science museum!

Not sure I would have the bottle to modify such classic gear!


Regards,


Ashley.

Indeed, but I would prefer the white one

I agree 100%.

As radio collector/restaurator, I know, how it looks, when some people tweaked radios in the 60ies and 70ies.

As example, look at this eggshelf at this Paillard Mod 431.

And the worst thing: this is a radio from my father and it was MYSELF, as young boy, glueing the shelf on the speaker, to improve high frequency reproduction

But: I dont remove it, as it is part of the history of this radio, now.

Regarding the CD207, I think I will carefully replace the old electrolytic caps by new ones, to avoid some damages.

And maybe, some small and reversible modifications.

Franz

P.S.
More info (in German language) about the Paillard Mod. 431 here http://www.radiomuseum.org/dsp_model...model_id=12920

Here a view inside the CD207: based on SAA7210, SAA7220, TDA1541 and TDA1542.

Any info about the TDA1542 is welcome!
