Still, the CD-Pro2LF remains 100% compatible, electrically and mechanically, with CD-Pro2M, CD-Pro2, CD-Pro and CDM12 Industrial. It is possible to replace a CDM12 Industrial module by a CD-Pro2LF in its existing application without any problem.
The CD-Pro2LF is pin-to-pin compatible with the CDM12 Industrial standard.
The CD-Pro2LF show better performances, especially thanks to their improved error correction systems. Experience has also underlined that CD7 and CD10 are less sensitive to ESD.
The main modification of the CD-Pro2LF is the replacement of the laser unit, which has resulted in changing the flex assembly and the mounting frame as well. Of course, the new laser can still read CD-DA, CD-R and CD-RW recorded audio discs.
The Second modification was the replacement of
the TDA1305 D/A Converter, which was used with all previous modules by a new generation 24-bit 192kHz DAC : the AK4384 chip from AKM.
