    I think I may have one of those first Phillips units (pop-top loading), I'll have to check to see if I can figure out where I stashed it. Likely to still be in its original box, too. If I can find it I'll post a photo. Don't think you'd want it since it probably got put away for performance issues. I also have a Sony CDP-101 which I think was their first one. Tray loading with remote for the Sony. Some unsupported type of digital output jack, too, if I remember correctly. I'm intrigued by your project but doubt an early CD player will be anything but the weak link in your system.

    (I've got an original Nak Dragon I've owned since new, still in use, too, though I have little reason to play or record cassettes anymore. Still a nice piece.)

    Hitachi DA1000

    This was the other CD player that came out when Sony introduced their
    cdp101. It is a front loader and a beautiful deck. This was my first CD player when only 10 or 15 dics where available. American TV of Madison
    Wisconsin had the 2 on display taking orders. I new the manager for that
    dept. and he told me I could buy either one. I bought the Hitachi and
    Steve the manager put the cardboard cut on the shelf for people to see for ordering. It was good sounging for the time

    CD players, vintage?

    Man, it's still hard for me to put CD player and vintage in the same sentence. I remember back in about 1981, I wanted to buy my first CD player, a Sony I think. My ex-wife's take on it, "so now I suppose you'll want to buy CD's also!" Got to love her, she's quick! Remember the first VCR's? Top loading, weighed about 50 pounds. If you were real cool, you had Beta-max!

    Good luck in your search. Sounds like you got a great system there!

    And if you're really, really cool, you still have Beta. Mine's stacked with an LD player and a DVD recorder... Big stack of beta tapes that have colorbars and music on 'em next to it.
