No longer use the CD-5001 - sold it!!
Moved to a Philips CD Pro2LF mechanism and a DIY kit as CD Transport. Just NO comparison with the Marantz.

regards

Hello Jose,

The CD Pro2LF is an industrial and professional mechanism that only the ultra highend manufacturers implement and charge you thousands of $$$ for it.

The chassis, all fasteners, wiring harness, remote control, metal puck, PCBs with all parts, transformer, display etc are packed and available from :

http://us.hifidiy.net/Article.asp?articleid=207

The cost for this is $ 480. (Look at the build quality of this chassis. You will feel like throwing your CD-5001 in the nearest trash can....)



The Philips CD Pro2LF module ONLY needs to be purchased separately and can be ordered from :

http://www.diy-high-end.com/price/

The cost for this is Euro 230 plus shipping.

Should take a week max to build this. Once ready and hooked up to a high quality DAC, only big smiles will come from you. The low frequency quality is altogether a different ballgame. Its layered and very much like real life.

Any difficulties, let me know.
Cheers!!

Cool! Thanks

Didnīt know about DiyKit.net

Sorry, I have no Marantz yet. Just a Toshiba DVD. That CD-Pro2 kit, with remote and balanced output is really something.

Did you have to tune or do some optical setup on the CD Pro2LF?

Itīs very unusual contact diyers fellows from India. I feel happy and surprised for that.

Thanks again for you kind atention.

Jose

Hi Jose

The CD Pro2LF mechanism DOES NOT require a single setting. Its a high precision module, in fact probably Philips's best effort in the optical pickup business.

So its a 'plug n play'...... with a life of around 90,000 to 100,000 hrs. This is not your ordinary transport mechanisms but a serious stuff. The module's price clearly reflects this.Manufacturers using such will ask for starting $5000 upwards for their transports. The Teac VRDS NEO transport is the only better one but thats not available to anyone except themselves, i.e. Esoteric.

Again, as I write this, I am listening to my new transport and must say that if your speakers are capable of digging deep beyond 30Hz in the lows and your listening area is spacious, the textured layered bass that this CD Transport gives is oh, so addictive that you are made to believe you are actually in the performance venue.

For realization of this, one must have top notch downstream gear and then, the fun begins.....

For under $1000, one cannot ask for anymore as this is already stupendous value.....

I'd been in China recently and have visited some of the contracted factories where I've seen some of these consumer CD players we speak off being built. Comparing that to what I DIY made recently, I feel sad for the CD players that I saw were being made as they were very, very mediocre and cheap...... yet one pays good $$$ to buy them in the shops.

Arup

Hi Arup

Just one more question

CD2ProLF provides an on board DAC AK4384.

Do you suggest another NOS, NOS tube external DAC one that matches this transport module class?

Thanks again

Jose

I don't use the on-board AK4384 dac, and neither do I use a NOS external dac (be it solidstate or tube).

My trusted and heavily modded Audio Alchemy is continuing to do the honors. And with it, I am terribly happy.....

Cheers!!
