Default Replacement for CDM 12.1

What kind of transport mechanism can I use as a direct replacement of the CDM 12.1 used in my Marantz CD63?
Is there a way to fit a CD-PRO2M in the CD63?
Best regards.

Hello Sandor!

The replacement for the cdm 12.1 is called VAM 1202!

Regarding your second question I don't know!

from my point of view there are more and better possibilities to use a cdmpro2... check the thread here on "digital" some weeks ago...

But anyway - how do you think the cdmpro will fit into the L1210 loading device?

I recently picked up a cdpro cheap with the intention of swapping it into Philips cd723 with cdm12.1 .

However, the mechanisms cannot be interchanged easily due to the use of different protocols:-


Cdm12.1 can be improved!

(Separate, and improved power supplies aswell as replacement microcontroller )

Lots of commercial, and diy examples out there!




Kind regards,

Differences are in the clamper force from the magnet of turntable (disc motor pulley) - see attachement. Same variation is between CDM12.1 and VAM1202
