Default replacement parts

I'm new to this so please bear with me.

A local man who advertises in HiFi World (Audio Specialists from Sutton-in-Ashfield) has had my CD player in for repair. It is the first time I have used the company for anything.
He carries out modifications aswell, so while he had it I asked him to see what modifications could be done.

He suggests:
40 replacement capacitors,
2 new op amps,
10 new diodes.

Now I have no technical knowledge relating to this at all, but he assures me it would have sonic benefits.

It intigues me as I have just read in HiFi+ that B&W spent a year listening to different capacitors and resistors for the Nautilus 800 Signature.

The CD player is about 10 years old and the modifications would cost 90 all in.

I thought maybe you guys would know more about this than anybody.

thank you for any advice
