Replacing VDRS 1 and RDAC

My VDRS 1 transport is doing some skipping. I had it worked on last year, but problems again. TEAC says they can't fix it. There is a laser for it available on EBAY from the UK that I might consider. I feed an ARDAC from it into my CARY SLI-80 F1 and then on to my Merlin VSM with master BAM.
I am thinking I may need a new (used) CD player or transport. Would like to keep it under $900-$1000 used. Any suggestions out there. Just for CDs. NO SACD or video.
