old Magnavox CDB 496 CD changer

Gang, I just picked up an old CD player - Magnavox/Phillips CDB 496 CD changer, from 1989.

The dolt who sold it to me did not include the 6 disk CD cartridge. Also, it looks like it takes a wired remote - there are RC5 jacks in the back.

Anyone have an old Phillips cartridge? Or remote?

I'd also appreciate any other information about this model? What model laser, DAC chips, etc (says Dual 16 bit on the front). I've opened it, but none of the parts have the numbers visible without dismantling the unit, as both the PCB and laser are upside down)

Thanks, Samir.
