Project Bluetooth Jukebox

Some years ago I got hold of this amazing Pioneer jukebox

It’s a Pioneer Laser Juke model CJ-V51, with dual CD players with a cassette system for the CD’s
According to tag with the serial number it was built in Japan in July 1993

The whole lower half is a massive speaker with a 300 watt amplifier.
Two 10” subwoofers, four 4” midrange speakers and two 2,5” tweeters on the side.

The biggest problem was getting the 148 kg brute home and up our stairs.

The Amplifier has a built-in 240 volt power outlet, that turns on and off together with the amplifier.
I used this and the line in connection for my Bluetooth conversion.

When it’s powered on by the remote, it powers up the Bluetooth reciever, and let’s you play your favourite tunes from the phone, while rotating the album art, in all its colourful splendour.
