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 had great service to repair a cdp from Anthony’s Electronic Services on Broadway in Chicago. He diagnosed for free that I needed a new spindle motor which I then sourced on EBay. Repair service cost about 150
