Picked up a nice Sherwood Newcastle CD 980 the other day and it plays perfectly so long as the disc is in perfect condition. Even the slightest scratch or mark on a disc sends it skipping like mad (marks/scratches that wouldn’t bother any of my other players). Now I would have sent it off to e-waste at this point except for the fact that it has dual PCM 1702 chips and sounds wonderful. Much warmer sound than my personal “reference” player (Onkyo C-7030) while still maintaining a high level of detail. Really nice sound to my ears. Is this super sensitivity a sign of a failing or weak laser? Or is there anything else I could check?
