Default What to do? DVD laser fault.

My Marantz DV4100ose has a faulty laser unit and a new one is 50. I can get a cheap player for that which does more and use the S/PDIF output. If using this output will there be any difference between a cheaper player and a more expensive one? Jitter?

Should I get the Marantz fixed? It would be nice to use the analogue output but it's not essential.

Not sure if you'll actually be able to hear the jitter. I don't. Happy me.

Until now two people described to me what they thought is jitter - in fact they had read errors on copied cd's (pops, skips) and low end speakers ("voices do not sound naturally").

Still waiting for someone who can pick something that is not a result of the above causes...
