I owned that unit. I bought it new from a place called higher-fi.
From the day I received it, it would not read several discs and eventually started to not eject the disc’s. I had to open it up to get the disc out!
Anyway, under warranty Cary said I was using bad disc’s and it just needed the sled to be re greased. I sent it to them a couple of times. Eventually, it wouldn’t read hardly any of my discs but now it was out of warranty. (At the time it was a 1 or 2 year warranty, I can't remember exactly)
This time however, Cary said it needed new board’s at a very high cost. (somewhere around $1500).
Cary refused to give me consideration based on previous repairs when it was under warranty.
I ended up getting it fixed, sold the unit, and decided I would never buy another Cary product again. I also believe that the seller had an arrangement with Cary. I had the serial number checked and though it was a new unit it was a couple of years old when I received it.
