I would not touch it. Even in its time it was a poor man's son. A lot of swithes does it have, though.

Some people here adore it. I had one and I did not like the grounding scheme. It has PCB design errors and it is not sufficiently decoupled at TDA8808 and TDA8809. But it has CDM9 which is good.

I agree with JP. Once you

- solve all PCB issues
- add a new clock
- upgrade power supply
- upgrade opamps and get rid of mute transistors

you'll have a fine player, CDM9 is great

Be aware that there are Belgium (Hasselt) and Singapore made players. Yes, these differ


best

Cool CD931

Hi I own a CD931. I only use it as a transport with my own clock of course. Broke the connection between chassis and PCB ground. Put in a balanced power transformer 30watt. SPDIF out is bad due to mickry transformer. Made my own, transformerless. Also I2S Direct added. So there.........
