Tandberg 3015A cd player

Hi everyone
There is one of these units on e.bay at the moment which is faulty and by the sounds of the desciption a new laser would be in order, my question is how good is the sound of this tandberg and are lasers still available and i guess is it worth repairing if won at a reasonable bid , i used to have a stax quattro 2 cd player and traded it to upgrade my amps , iloved the sound and wish i could get another but there really hard to find in good condition , how would the tandberg rate to the stax , has anyone got any experience with the tandberg. cheers.

I used to own one of these in the late 80s. I really liked the sound--where others complained about the digital edginess of CDs, I found no such thing when using this player. It looks nice too. However, depending on its age, I recall that the 3015A is at best an 18-bit machine. Today there are more advanced CD players that can also give you an analogue-like sound without breaking the bank, like the Jolida for instance.
