I bought a 2nd hand CD Xt transport from the classified on here a few years ago. I have been reasonably happy with it up until a month or so ago when it has started having problems loading and ejecting the CDs. If they do load, they generally play OK. It is not one of the models supported for full Cyrus service (which would cost £300 in any case!) but according to the supported models list on link here it might be possible to repair. https://www.cyrusaudio.com/support/servicing/ Should I send it back to Cyrus for a possible repair or cut my losses and get something else? Or maybe even attempt a home repair? I am pretty comfortable pulling things apart and putting them together but can not solder to any sort of reasonable standard. I have an excellent external DAC that i am happy with so only looking for a good replacement transport. If anyone has had experience of Cyrus servicing and repairs or indeed DIY repairs on these units, I would love to hear how you got on. I have lusted for an AudioNote transport for years but can't afford one! Thoughts?
My Gryphon Callisto 2100 integrated amp has been the core of my system for about 15 years and has never been in jeopardy of ejection. I 'downscaled' from a much more expensive Krell FPB300 after some years experimenting with valves. The Gryphon lacks the outright dynamic range of the Krell but replicates much of what is lovely about valve mid-range with the drive and control required to get the most from my Sonus Faber speakers. Anyway, a noticeable white noise has been building in the left channel. It's obvious from the listening position although it doesn't seem to affect the amp's overall performance. I'm guessing it's some electrolytic capacitors failing and I'd like to get the amp properly serviced by someone I can trust, so do you knowledgeable folk have any recommendations? Many thanks!
