I have a Marantz CD 63 SE (Special Edition) which I bought in 1995 costing about £350 - I have always been happy with the sound played through Cyrus 3 Amp (1995) through Mission speakers and now new speakers B & W 686s. However when playing CDs they are jumping a lot - tried CDs in another player they were Ok so i know something wrong with player. A Hi-Fi shop said blow cold air from a hairdrier incase of dust on laser - made no difference - don't know if anything else will work?
I realise I will probably have to replace the CD player - I want the same sound quality - so any advice on a CD player with as good a quality of sound is appreciated. I am happy to go with Marantz again - the Hi Fi shop suggested Marantz CD6002 at £230 would be the equivalent. Any comments on what I have posted - 14 years on the replacement would be cheaper - is this because electronic goods have come down in real price over time?
