I've had a couple highish end, older cd players at Stereo Rehab in Chicago for a few months now awaiting repair. The players are a Consonance Droplet 5.0 and a Raysonic 228. Both need the laser replaced and apparently the Droplet has an issue with the board that drives it as well. The gentleman at Stereo Rehab has made it very clear that he doesn't think the players are worth repairing and has basically said he won't work on them. Both players are in excellent condition and honestly, are some of the best sounding digital I've heard. I don't want to replace either nor can I afford to. Can anyone recommend a shop in the Chicago area that can fix these players and will? I'm located about 3.5 hours south of the city so it's not a simple matter to investigate myself. Thanks for the help.
I'll check with both shops. I'm about 4 hours south of Chicago but I didn't want to risk shipping these beasts as Fed Ex hasn't been kind to my electronics lately so a personal delivery seemed safest. Thanks for the options!
