Better laser amp transistor than BC338?
On a 'good' player of any make and model I have always found that adjustments have a wide tolerance... meaning that it will still play correctly even if the settings are off considerably.

Once things start getting super critical then there is usually something else going on beside simple mis-alignment. I wouldn't hesitate to both increase and decrease the laser power a little (by monitoring the RF amplitude) and to see if that alters this distortion fault you mention in the other thread.
