Hi Paul,

              I use a guy local to me in Berkshire, Ian Davies. He is based in Basingstoke....

http://www.hifi-repair-specialist.co.uk/

He has serviced my M20's and repaired my very old MCD Pro CD player. Obviously you will need to ship them to him.

Another option is Wimslow Audio in Leicester. I haven't used them but they seem to have good reputation.

Good luck.

Cheers

Danny.

You can get test CDs that have tracks at the very start and end that can be used as a cleaner for the slide mech - basically program track 1 and track 99 on repeat and leave foe a few minutes. I've got one somewhere, but unfortunately don't know where it is :( (my house is full of boxes). I've found that has solved the problem in the past, and it's inexpensive.

I guess you could easily fudge one with a CDR, just stick 99 tracks of 45 seconds each on it and bob's your uncle.

now there's a thought, the fault is proving intermittent which makes me think it might be needing a lube (I'll say fnarr fnarr for freefallrob now), but a clean might work

only one issue with the CDR trick is that this player won't accept CDRs as it uses a proper mech not a CD-ROM, could try a CD-A as they are Red Book compliant, hmmm

Hi all. I have a Meridian 201 preamp. When I plug headphones into the amp I get sound from both the speakers and the headphones. I assumed plugging in the headphones would mute the speakers. Am I missing something???

not sure, BS had their own way of doing things and I suspect it may need a manual mute, manuals are here: http://www.meridian-audio.info/show.php?compid=168

I must confess that I used to have a 501V and that had a rear headphones socket (like I said BS ploughed their own path!) but cannot comment as I never even tried it as I have a valve headphone amp so used the tape out for that

Not much recent activity on this thread!

I've just bought an original 508 cd and I was trying to find out what the resolution is. Depending on where you look the first versions were either 16 or 18 bit. (The 506 I think started at 16 bit.)

As this has the swing arm mech I believe it's early, and yet it has a dot matrix display which came later, at least in the 506 hierarchy. (Perhaps the 508 got the dot matrix from the start.)0795b47f3165a8ab6140c1468b3ded36.jpgce7cf4ffc4300f4413f57d56477f8bbe.jpg

Ok found this on Meridian Unplugged. (Some describe the 18 bit model as 19 bit, I think there was some digital trickery to get effective 19 bit resolution out of an 18 bit dac chip.)

Mine is 100xxx so early.

SN: 1xxxxx = 18 Bit CD player with the swing arm laser assy. (not upgrade-able to any other spec)
SN: 2xxxxx = 18 Bit CD Player with linear laser Mech upgrade-able to 20 or 24 bit D/A sections
SN: 3xxxxx = 20 Bit CD Player with linear laser Mech upgrade-able to 24 bit D/A sections
SN: 4xxxxx = 24 Bit CD Player with linear laser Mech final version
