The laser in Marantz Cd80 (CDM1 Mk2) can be swapped with CDM2, CDM4/11, or the laser arm of CDM4/19. So look for CDPs have these laser, they are quite cheap.

I am currently using Arcam Delta 70.2, it originally has CDM4/11 but I can put in CDM2, CDM1 Mk2, and of course CDM4/19 laser arm, all work great!!!.

Hope this will help.
