This is what I bought.
Cool that you don't loose an outlet and also get a 5v USB.
Doesn't look to cumbersome either.
Nice score Brother, give Mom a kiss!!!
Definitely give her a big hug and a kiss. I'd tell you she is a treasure, but you already know that.
Mark, I tell her all the time not to worry with it, but I can't stop her. She's brought me home all sorts of great CD players, speakers, etc. She doesn't move well at 70 (had a near fatal car wreck in '88, and could use another artificial hip) but there ain't no stopping her, ya dig? The last Pioneer Blu-Ray she brought me home was a 600 dollar job from 2008, I believe. 8 bucks. Sounds GREAT.
I'll report in when the step-up gets here. Hoping she works.
Enjoy it while it lasts because I think that one has one of the rare and expensive KSS-151A laser assemblies, same as my DCD-1560.
Yeah, a bit Donny Downer-ish, but wouldn't want to see you put a bunch of mods anything like that for a unit where the laser assy is borderline unobtanium.
Some say you can replace just the laser diode, but the assembly, if you can find one, is $$$$ used.
I had to pass on one at a thrift last month. It was pretty beat up and didn't power up when plugged in.
You're telling the truth; no need to apologize, whoareu99.
I've had a bad run of late, restored receivers quitting, speakers with unobtainium mids, you name it. Maybe this time my luck will change.
And if not, I still have a Yamaha CDX-1100U and a modded Playstation that honestly are neck and neck, and both are glorious.
I got a 1520 on the shelf, bought it and the door didn't open. I think I even have the belt kit and just need to do the surgery. Not enough hours in the day. Dammit.
Every vintage CDP I've bought, the first thing I do is get on eBay and see if I can find a replacement belt set for it. Both 1520's I've had required new belts as well as the Sony CDP-302 I picked up a few weeks ago.
I still haven't received the step-up, hoping it comes soon. And belt replacement on these is supposed to be pretty simple.
Marco Antonio Solís - Trozos De Mi Alma
Música romántica mexicana - not bad actually. It's got a nice sound to it.
ETA: Inside CD - Perfect match to what you have in there.
Reydela, THAT IS IT! haha. Good job, man.
Just found out it'll be TUESDAY before I get my step-up. Should have ordered from Amazon. I swear, it's like they're waiting in the damned bushes to deliver my package BEFORE I even order it.
I used a DX-706 for years and loved everything about it.
