Question about Marantz CD-17 CD Player
I have a 1995 Marantz CD-17. It is an awesome piece of equipment, the only problem being that it will not navigate CD-Rs very well. It will not perform direct track access or play in random mode. Is there any way to upgrade this unit for less than the replacement cost. I think the cost in 1995 was $1200. I do not want to perform this upgrade myself unless it is a "plug and play" type of upgrade. I would rather use the unit as-is than risk destroying it with a soldering iron. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jonathan
Swop the older philips mechanism ( cdm12.1?) that can't handle cdr/w's for the newest compatible equivalent (VAM1201) that plays anything Should be a straight drop-in swop and cost about $40 for the laser unit if you do it yourself. You'll also get a new disc spindlemotor in the assembly. Confirm part numbers first.
