The early NSM ES V-CD (ES5) jukeboxes came with a black 100 disc CD changer that had the Philips CDM4 CD player. On these models, the Control Unit handled all functions of the CD Changer such as the lift and grip motors.
Later on, starting with the EPROM program version V0104 (23.02.96), the task of controlling the lift and grip motors, were off-loaded to a faster CD Changer known as the MBC III. The technology series was upgraded to ES V.1-CD (ES5.1).
This iPod adapter works with the ES V.1-CD MBC III interface. Older model ES V-CD jukeboxes can be upgraded to ES V.1-CD by changing the EPROM program chip (IC4) to version V0104. With this adapter, you could have 100 CD's with each having up to 99 tracks (that's 9,900 selections). Selections made on the jukebox are played from the iPod playlists which are named "00" to "99" to represent each of the 100 CD's. The jukebox operates exactly the same as if a CD changer was attached, except that song selections are quicker.
The following ES V.1-CD models are directly supported ...
Country 2000 Digital Thunder Digital Thunder Wall Emerald Ice Heritage Juke 2000 Performer Grand 2000 Performer Wall 2000 Sapphire Sapphire Midnight
After the EPROM V0104 upgrade, these models are supported ...

The jukebox in the video is the "Emerald Ice" wall unit which requires external speakers. Since this is our testing unit, we only have small box speakers attached (sitting on top of the jukebox). Normally, with a good pair of speakers, these jukeboxes put out superior sound. The Apple iPod is a 3rd Generation Nano (8GB). After ripping all 100 CD's using the 192 kbps MP3 bitrate, only 6.3GB was used on the iPod.
