I've just completed building my 59th player from pieces parts.

The chassis and bulk of the player mechanism are from a CLD-07G. The mechanism required additional parts to complete (Side B gear track, inside limit switch on the pickup, springs under the lower gear track). The tray and face plate are from a CLD-05, with the button facade and headphone jack from a CLD-D703. The Power Supply, AUDB board, VSOP assemblies and back plate are from 2 different CLD-D704 units. The front panel board is from a CLD-D703, but the IR Receiver and the IC Chip are from a broken CLD-D704 board.

I love fixing up these broken players :D

Nice job, so you have 59 working players now? Now THAT's future proof.

I suppose I feel less bad now about acquiring my 13th player as of yesterday. :roll:

If anyone recalls from about a month ago, I posted about this machine in the Buy/Sell section that was going for $45 in the SF Bay Area

Image

I went back to the shop thinking it was already gone but low and behold it was still there on the shelf. I asked a clerk to see about testing it and immediately it had the usual symptoms of a stretched belt. I asked him if he would let it go for a tad less but then started to say he couldn’t sell it now because of the issue and was going to have it scrapped (what!!!). Anyway, after more conversing, I changed his mind but still wanted to see if I could talk him down. He let it go for $40 and recommended that I get a belt to fix the issue :!:. So I was thinking to myself as I left the shop; if you knew it was a bad belt, why would you even consider scrapping it.

Anyway, I saved a good working machine from what would have been an untimely death (unless he was bluffing about it) but now I need to figure what do with it after I replace the belt.

Yup. And it sounds glorious. Operationally, this is a CLD-D704.

#60 is a CLD-D925 coming from Europe.
#61 is a CLD-M90 that is broken, but looks to be in good shape cosmetically. I'll see what I can pull out of my hat on this one.

I hope it is a museum because those are beloved pieces of electronics that will never be made again.

Pics please. I would love to see this tower or however you've manage to organize it.
