Resurrecting CD Transport
My trusty Wadia 3200 transport started skipping. I cleaned the laser and added some WD40 to the mechanism, but it still skips. It seems to play track 1 fine, but the skipping increases the further into the tracks I go. I have two questions:
1) Do the symptoms point to something I could repair?
2) The transport is feeding a Benchmark USB DAC. In today's world, am I better off getting a laptop with a CD transport since that would also let me listen to Internet content and streaming radio stations? If so, is there a goto model, would it sound as good, and is there any software to make it sound better? I have a good Wireworld USB cable.
Thanks in advance.
