I’m truly inspired by some of the projects I’ve seen here! They have sparked an idea in me, and I’d like to get your perspectives on its feasibility.
I have a non-functioning Yamaha CR-800, which I purchased knowing it was out of order. The missing transformer is the main problem and despite my extensive search, I’ve been unable to find a replacement. I’m close to giving up on that quest!
So, I’m contemplating an alternative route: what if I could repurpose it into a streamer?
My preliminary plan involves expanding the opening to accommodate an 11.9-inch Waveshare screen. I’d need to cut at the lower part of the knob openings, resulting in a new opening of 360*86mm. In order to fit the screen, I’d need to create an adapter, but that shouldn’t be a problem as I have access to a 3D printer.
I’m well-equipped with the necessary hardware including a Raspberry Pi 4, linear power supply, DAC, and the needed cables.
Do you think this project is feasible? I’d appreciate your thoughts and insights.
Will it be easier to order a new faceplate?
