Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Main problem is dust and drying out lubricants

gently dusting off laser lens won't do. You just need to clean it with lens cleaning fluid, clean the sled rails with IPA and lubricate with proper lubricant. Apply drop of lubricant to motor and clean lubricate drawer mech if applicable. I just measured Sony 151a laser from Mcitnosh (Esoteric/Teac really ) dated 1996 -two owners. It deteriorated only 10% over almost 30 years.
