Marantz CD50SE skipping
My beloved Marantz CD50SE, owned from new and now residing in my holiday house has started skipping. I love the sound of this player, and I was considering adding a superclock to get a little more detail/separation, so I am sad that it seems to be on its last legs.
Can I fix this? Replace a part, or parts?
Should I buy another off ebay? I assume a second hand unit of the same vintage, will suffer the same symptons eventually, so a fix would be better.
Advice please.
Thanks in advance.

This could well be the problem.

Have you cleaned the laser ?

Use a laser cleaning cd - wet with isopropanol/ water or spec. cleaner.

If the only problem is skipping, buy a 'new' laser assembly.
If you buy another cd-player from EBAY, it may not be much better.
