    Default Need to replace, or repair CD player

    Hi, My California Audio DX2 CD player may have a transport problem. When you close the drawer it does not start playing. I tapped it a little the first time and it did start, but is has gotten worse. It also is sounding raspy in the high end on the right side. Tonight I will look into the speaker issue, SADc1's w/rebuilt crossovers. I'm told it could cost $250.00 to $500.00, plus shipping, to repair. I paid $600 about 10 years ago. I would like to get your opinion on repair vs. replace. If I need to replace, what Brand, Model, specs should I be looking at? I would like to keep at around the same price, give or take. Thanks!

    I saw that too, Sal. Wish I had the cash for it.

    That's a good player. You might want to take advantage, gd.

    Lasareath, Maybe I'm being to hasty. I am not familiar with multi players, would it be suitable using it as just a CD player and are dedicated CD players better than multiplayers?
    I'm looking to upgrade the sound quality of my system and not really looking for a DVD player. I am also curious as to how old it is. Thanks! Gary
