The CD1200 was originally planned to allow the A1200 to use CD-ROMs as well as having CD32 compatibility. This probably included the additional chunky to planar chip known as the Akiko which the CD32 used. The CD1200 however used a slightly different locking mechanism compared to the CD32, as it uses magnetic disc locking. Unfortunately the CD1200 was never released to the public.
