This is what I thought...
But is there an equivalent from Philips, which uses the CDM12 mechanism?
The 63 sell up to 200 Euros at ebay, which is lot for aiming at the mechanism
+ control circuitry only...
All the best,

Why do you want a CDM12?
There are others, many argue better. CDM4 or CDM9 for example.

Is a Philips CD920 CDM12? I can't remember. if the CD tray is to the left and not in the center, in the later 900 series, then I suspect its a 12.

Default Help with Philips CD 723 and Marantz CD 5000

Hi guys!

After many years I am opening again this issue.

I have bought Philips CD 723 really cheap to replace dead Marantz CD-40 from my second system used in working room. I found it a bit rough sounding and had idea to modify it, but many people said it is not good for modifying.
Today I received e-mail with offer to buy used Marantz CD 5000 which is in great condition. Are they both using same DA converter or not??? According to the photos from the Net they look almost the same inside.

I would be grateful for all suggestions and any data about modifying.

Hi Mariolino, I think the internals of these players are identical. Got this info from the old Lampizator site:

Actually, this is what inspired me to buy the Cambridge Audio Dacmagic!
