They seem to be manufactured as disposable commodities. Even if you could get parts, it probably wouldn't be worth fixing anyway.

There is something fundamentally wrong with the mind-set that produces multi-thousand dollar products that are looked upon as disposable commodities to be thrown away when they get over five years old.
At the opposite extreme there are few examples; Quad ESL57s that are over or approaching their half century mark and Western Electric gear that's over 75 years old and still used.
It's a strange world.
That's why I love magnepan.
I bought some used MG-1s and had 'em repaired at the factory in 2004 or so. They were 25 years old,at least. And still supported by the factory.
Good stuff can be fixed and is generally worth it.
A good reason to avoid hi-dollar CD players. Commodity, marginally supported transports being sold to hi-end companies which won't fix 'em 5 years later.
