One of my systems has Kinergetics KCD-55T transport purchased many years ago from a fellow who actually wanted to buy it back from me when he realized it was hard to improve upon. It is built very solidly, and with every DAC upgrade the system sounds better, so that it is not a limiting factor. Very natural, musical, extended range performance, and it seems like the sort of component that could have become a "classic" if enough had been sold to generate a fan base. I have never seen the inside of my unit so can't comment whether it is easy to make repairs. If you contact a repair shop then the technician may know if a unit is able to be repaired. If your friend has the instruction booklet, or other technical info on this unit I would appreciate being put in touch with him. I cannot remember the last time I even saw an ad for a kinergetics CD transport so your friend's unit is one of only a small number.
