Does it use that Philips CD12(?) transport that they used on the 303?? If it does, you should talk to the people at Cary. There are a few threads on audio asylum about some Philips transport problems on Cary players.

The Cary 301 skipped for about 3 days of very high humid weather. It ceased skipping when it returned to normal. I did experiment with a Shakti Stone over the rear transformer and a VPI Brick opver the traNSPORT. THIS RESULTED IN A WARMER, LARGER, MORE OPEN SOUND. The Cary sounds like analog, its about the only cd player that sounds that way on my Quad 57's.
