Had a very bad experience with Alfred, will not have any dealings with him anymore.

Bought a used valve CDP (its European made, not cheap player) from him and later realized the cdp dac has been bypass to a cheapo, less than $10 china made dac.

Marantz n Denon are not very uber high-end makes. Hence, from the fella's ad, u can presume that he'll not be using uber high-end components for repair oredi...

Thanks for all the advice. He quote $65 with 2-3 days downtime.

Discover yesterday, the CD door can manually pull out slowly, put CD, slowly push in. It is still able to play without skipping.

If you open the player, you will find that the tray open and close mechanism consists of a gear, plastic wheel and a rubber band. If the gear and plastic wheel are in good condition, it's the rubber band that has turned hard or stretched.

Have had bad experience with Alfred too. Bought a pair of used speakers and found it to be broken when tested at home.
There was obvious sign of touch-up to 'hide' the defect  >:(
