I've never actually tried it but I would have thought it unlikely as there is no harmonised standard as to how CD control panels communicate with their base units, and the messages from the control unit are coded and sent by some kind of data stream through the link cable, which is then decoded and turned into signals which carry out the intended function in the main base unit.

At best, it probably wouldn'g do anything or you'd probably get strange mixed up behaviour, such as pressing 'play' changes the tracks, but at worst you may bugger up the control panel, base unit or both and be far worse off!.

Have you lost one half or had it stolen?

no the base units lasers or motors wore out and someone was selling a base unit only on ebay so though i could change it

maplins do one that looks a bit like an rcd that you plug into the socket in the wall, then your extension lead goes into that.About 8. Worth it , but will only work once so if it does blow and you suspect the electrics are dodgy dont plug anything else in .

they are worth it by the way, 8 to save your gear , you can also buy a tester that plugs into the socket, that will tell you if the socket is not right , tester

looks good , what amp and speakers are they? might be worth just tidying up the wires on the back of the lights for a more tidy look, velcrow strips are handy or "ye old gaffa"

do you know if you can link up different heads to the base units via the data cable on twin cd players?
