Just how hard and with what did you "thump" the top? Just curious.

I wasn't very gentle with the thumping....and I did it several times out of frustration. I hate to dump it and move on. When I bought it, it was considered one of the best under $1,000 CD players. I posted here in 2003 about the stuck drawer problem (it's been sitting idle since then) but I mentioned the brand name in that post, and commented that the brand had a problem with reliability, so the forum monitor removed my message. That brand has cleaned up it quality problems and is a highly popular brand in the lower price audiophile range now.
Cross your fingers--After the problem with the distortion, I took it out of my system for a week or so, then just on a whim, reinserted it into my audio system. This time, the distortion was gone! After a couple hours of listening, it began to skip some, so I shut it down. After a few days, started listening again and so far no problems. I've listened for at least 10 hours with as many of 10 different CDs. So far so good. So I have my fingers crossed that the bugs have worked themselves out of the CD player. It certainly sounds good and I can see why it was called one of the best under $1K CD players back about 10 or 12 years ago.
