Default CD-17

A new laser is fairly cheap. You can try to clean the old...
The Marantz is not happy with all types CD-R in my experience...

Hi

I suspect laser dirt or age. Clean first if no joy replace I guess.
This unit will not read CDRW but I never had any grief with CDR while I owned one though discs used were JVC/Traxdata/LG/Memorex/TDK/Mtsui (spelling) but never any real cheap suspect unbranded stuff.

I went quite far with this unit, it got stolen though, but after the mods the unit totally eclipsed the KI version of it, left it far behind.

Not sure if I posted detail here or on AA tweakers.

Can not find my posts myself......

Here goes from memory:

Custom Toroid with xtrra winding for clock psu to replace original TXF
Trichord clock 2
Separate DC supply for clock
BYT53 Diodes on all PSUs
replace 2114 op amps with 2604
Replaced std caps with Oscon caps on all digital IC local supplies.
Main digital PSU 5V reg replaced with better spec T03 pack version
Elna Starget, Cerafine or Silmic on Analogue supplies, replaced Duorex DC block caps on output with either Cerafine or silmic but seem to recall preferring Cerafine.
Bitumen damping on top and bottom panels.

Not sure if there was anything else..... Probably better AC power cable.

Forgot to say, a new laser will also improve sonics over one that sort of works. And I do not mean because of no skipping, clearer, more focus, all the good stuff, really.....
