    'Fluff under the needle' noises - but from a Creek CD Player (CD60)

    I have an early 90's Creek CD-60 CD player. After about half an hour, it sounds like there is a little bit of 'fluff under the needle' one channel - but from a Creek CD Player (CD60) playing a CD. Then over time it sounds like it picks up more fluff, so that after about 1 hour it gets so bad it...

    Disabling Digital Output CD Player?

    I own a Marantz CD6006 CD player. In the settings, there is an option to shut off the digital output. Does anyone know what purpose that serves, as opposed to just leaving it on and not using it? The only thing I can imagine is that it has something to do with sound quality, However, I tried it...

    Hi all, I have this player from about 1994 and used to use it a lot before the drawer refused to open. I now have to tip the player forward to let the drawer slide open. I've searched online and found a few fixes which involve replacing a few bits but I'm new to all this. Would it be fairly...

    Best CD player for under £750?

    My Musical Fidelity X-ray 3 has died. The Musical Fidelity X-80 Amp is still functioning - and hopefully won't need replaced for another year or two, and the pair of Dynaudio Audience 40 speakers are fine. Budgetwise I've got no more than £750 to spend. I like listening to all kinds of...

    Quad Artera CD Player

    I've just had my second Quad CD player go duff on me in less than 6 months. I was told that Quad was generally very reliable and having owned a Quad 34/303 pre/power amp since 1983 would normally agree. Am just up-grading to a ATC CD2. Has anyone else had quality problems ?

    Understanding CD Player Quality and Price

    Good day, everyone. I was hoping to understand how CD player price correlates with quality. I've seen a number of Marantz and Denon CD players that go for anywhere between 200 and 800 dollars. I can imagine that in a system that has analog outputs, the quality of the DAC components and...

    CD Player for Marantz SR6015

    I recently purchased a Marantz SR6015. This is huge upgrade compared to the rest of my budget system. I currently have a Sony DVP S530D (CD/DVD) and Sony BDPS1700 (Blu Ray). I just bought a toslink cable which I now understand turns my cd player into a transport and uses the DAC in the SR6015. I...

    CD player output options

    I have a question regarding audio connection options between a CD player and an AV receiver. I had always assumed that if a given CD player was equipped with digital audio “outs” (coax or optical), it would be considered the optimal connection method and that this setup channels the digital...
