hi guys
i would appreciate some advice.
in need to replace my crappy CD player (not tweakable, not upgradable).
think of Philips CD 104 (refurbished by replaced cons, new gold plated out, checked solderings and resolded), Marantz CD 84 (black, perhaps Mark II) or Sony CDP 710 (upgraded with Mundorf cons, tweaked other cons and 1540 inside).
all of them are similar price cat. 120-130 euros. of course all would be tested 'on ears' but thinking of hardware...some wise thoughts please.
e.g. today is still possible to buy compatible laser for the Sony...dunno that for Philips and Marantz?
