How to add digital output on my Sony CDP-C265 cd player.

I'm a DIY analog builer. My system comprises from CD transport, DAC, Pre and Main Amplifiers. Instead of using RDA outputs I like to install a digital output on my Sony cd player. I don't have a manual but I can follow any instructions and advices. Thanks
Chris

Try opening up the top and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, look at the back side of the optics and there should be a marking like KSS-xxx. This is the generic part designation. Any electronics supplier that supports Sony should have these.

How many Dac in 3010 yamaha receiver


What exactly do you mean by DAC (Digital-analog converter)?
As the audio core of this receiver is digital, it has an ADC for each analog input. Then it has one DAC for each analog output, so it has 13x DAC for Pre-out (11.2ch which are used also as inputs to amplified speaker outputs) + 2x DAC for stereo AV out + 2x DAC for stereo headphones.

Getting no sound hooked up to pre-amp and 2 rotel 200w amps with snell speakers


You didn't say whether the player is connected by 2 RCA cables (analog) or by digital cable. If by RCA, does the player have a headphone jack? I had a player once with a piece of a headphone that broke off inside the jack, muting the analog outputs.

My Luxman d-90 cd player (manufactured in 1988) doesn't have digital out therefore I can't use my DAC. I am looking for a schematic for this product better yet if there is someone out there who already did...

In regards to getting a digital output off your CD player there really is not any point in doing this. With standard CD quality you are not going to get any audio benefit from upconverting to a digital format with the player.

You would have to purchase a $50 to $100 Analog to Digital converter and then you are still limited by the audio output of the Luxman d-90 cd player.

So I would recommend that you just use your analog outputs. If you are wanting digital output for your CD player you would be better off buying a new CD Player that has digital output.

Also note unless you are wantling to play digital CDs that are in a DTS for Dolby format there is no need for digital output on a CD player.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Do you know if the Sony CDP-C215 can play MP3 format?


No ... This is a 1st generation multi-disk player and, although it's a great, reliable, unit, it does not recognize MP3 or WMA files. You can play BURNed (automatically copied as CDI files) or RIPped copies (converted to WAV files only). The files are much larger ... but more detailed and accurate than compressed formats.

I have an old Sony CD player (CDP-M47) - its probably about 20 years old (or so). The cd drawer has started sticking but with assistance if I can get a CD in it plays o.k. Is it fixable?


do you have to push it slightly for the drawer to go in?

if so then aply some wd40 or other lubricant to any gears or theeth on the drawer

and wd40 works fine with electronics

Marantz pm 15 s1 amplifier and marantz sa15 s1 Cd player


There really is no point in  connecting the two components with an optical (=digital) cable, if you didn't want to use the SA-15s DAC- and analog output section you might aswell have bo bought the chiepest one you could find...

To get better sound than the SA-15s analog outputs can provide, you would have to spend a load of money (not as much as for the SA-15 but quite a bit) on a DAC - and the DAC would only work with CDs, you would still have to use the SA-15s analog outputs to listen to SACDs.

So in conclusion:
-Use the SA-15s analog outputs

-If you have other digital sources that you want to use - if you care about their sound quality - you can sell/return the SA-15s, buy the chiepest CD-Player you find (only look and feel matter) and spend the rest on a good DAC. (note: SACDs won't play on this setup)


I'm using a PM-15S1 with a DAC (Apogee Mini DAC, Studio-Equipment, nominal price ~1000$, got mine 2nd hand for 400€ ) myself. A DAC is usually the better choice over an expensive CD-Player - especially if you've got other digital sources (PC, ...) - but you'll probably lose a lot of money if you sell the SA-15, so think about it (IF you're still thinking about it, I realise that your question is 8 months old...)


anyway... have fun with the PM-15, it sure is beauty

Sony CDP-C225 will not read or play cd's


Try running a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru it, preferrably one that uses fluid. You can purchase one at just about any retail store for 15-20. Good to have and great preventative maintanance. If that does not work, you need a new transport, they do not repair or align lasers. Too expensive. The replacement is 100-150 with labor and a new one is under 200. My suggestion would be if the cleaner does not work replace it and keep the new one clean. CD/DVD/PC etc. all can and should be cleaned 3 or 4 times a year. Best preventative maintanance you can do. Hope this helps
