Problem with Arcam Alpha 7 CDP
Problem with Arcam Alpha 7 CDP – May I have some suggestions regarding repair or replacement?
My Arcam CDP struggles to read CDRs and on the odd occasion fails to read originals correctly.
When a CDR is inserted it continuously tries read the TOC and makes a clonking sound whilst trying to access the disk . After about 15 seconds it starts to play, but the sound is distorted. I've tried cleaning the lens and have lubricated the transport.
Please click on the YouTube link below for further information.
I haven’t edited the clip and the sound cuts out when the camera moves next to the speaker.
Do you think its worth repairing this transport or would I be better off going for a sub £100 transport off ebay and modifying it?
If so, which transport offers a better sound in stock form when compared to the Arcam? I am after something quite nice
