My NEC 4x CD changer, although cool, is unbearably slow. For the heck of it I decided to try to integrate three old laptop IDE optical drives in one 5-1/4" bay. It fits and works much better than a CD changer. I had to rewire the transposers to give slave and master. The three CD-audio outputs are connected to the sound card via some resistors to mix them together. I also designed a new triple transposer that will hopefully make it more streamlined. The housing is 3D printed and painted in IBM grey.

Can we get more pics of the unit outside the case?

I got the PCBs. I had made four errors with the middle drive connections. After fixing it works fine. I'll have to reorder and check the new PCBs too. They identify as slave and master like they should with the Panasonic drives I'm using. I can't find any supplier for JAE connectors like that, probably an obsolete part by now since everything is SATA, but cheap single slot interpowers cost just $3-5 from Electromyne so I scavenged these from some of those.

It's installed so I attached a screenshot of the 3D model as it looks outside the case.

That's a pretty cool idea.
And what the heck is an Amiga 5600? 😀 And what keyboard is that?

That's my 3D printed case for modern hardware. It's got a Ryzen 5 5600g. The keyboard is an Arrogant Quake mechanical keyboard with retro keycaps. It's my new CAD workstation.

either heresy or pretty cool. I can't decide 😁
