The optical pick-up unit (OPU) is the most critical part of the CD player, and the one most commonly in need of replacement.
CD Pro 1 or CDM12 Industrial Optical Pick-up Unit (OPU1)
This OPU can be used to service jukebox and hifi applications based on the common
CDM12 Industrial and CD Pro 1 player. All factory adjustments are already implemented. This assembly comes with a compatible turntable motor that is used in CDM12 and Pro 1 players. OPU1 is compatible with all brands of jukeboxes and hifi players in which a CDM12 or CD Pro player is used.
CDM12 and CD Pro are electronically similar units, but there are significant incompatibilities between the two. CDM12 was phased out due to flaws in its mechanical design. And while the first version of CD Pro was a major improvement, it was phased out when its light pen was discontinued.
CD Pro 2 Optical Pick-up Unit (OPU2)
This OPU can be used to repair CD Pro 2 players. All factory adjustments are already implemented. This OPU does not come with a turntable motor.
OPU2 is compatible with all brands of jukeboxes and hifi players in which a CD Pro 2 player is used. OPU2 is not compatible with CDM12 or CD Pro 1 players.
