Looks like you have a DSL-710A with the LO13 drive firmware.

Out of curiosity, I tried this on two different 596s I have. (One of them failed to recognise a specific CD earlier this evening, so I'm trying to work out what to do about that).

first 596 (office):
596 1.89.2
Drive LV18
DVS-LDR DSL
LDR DSL-720

second 596:
596 189.2
Drive LT76
DVS-LDR DSL
LDR DSL-710

It was the DSL-720 that caught my eye. Was there another model of drive that Meridian used in these players?

I remember that there was a firmware update that was deemed non essential some time ago. I believe I updated mine at the time anyway to the 720. I expect many owners did not.

They seem to have used DSL-710, DSL-720 and the DRL-200 drives. They are interchangeable.

To user the DRL-200, you need to have installed the 1.89.2 firmware, which you have.
