In Reply to: RE: inroduced in ~ 2010, $1-2k, used CD player: worth? posted by dave789 on March 03, 2017 at 17:47:57
I have bought used $40 to $80 CD changers and expect to throw them away if they break.
A $1,000 used player, which is unrepairable is a bad choice.
I would stick to ones which can be repaired.
Used may break a day after you buy it.
$1,000 doorstop is not worth the risk.
On the other hand, if $1,000 is what you spend for one dinner night out... Then the risk is nothing.
"A $1,000 used player, which is unrepairable is a bad choice.

That is important. Could you tell us how you found out that Creek Destiny 2 CD player is unrepairable?
Far too many high end players use a unique build for the laser platform. So as soon as they go out of production.. that is the end.
Some types have lesser quality substitutes which can be plugged in. Like the Sony SCD-1. But then all you have is a cheap substitute?
I would return the question: How do YOU know that the one you are interested in DOES have parts available. 20 to 1 not.
Naturally, common parts can always be replaced.. like capacitors.
