Low end stereo question - I have a 1990s Technics CD player in the garage which has stopped reading discs. Guessing a laser problem. How feasible to transfer a laser/CD drive from an old laptop? Would that be possible?

Just don't like throwing things out!

Yes.

They were always regarded as the best of the low end. The Planar 3 was the first to lead the mid range TTs. How old is it?

I might have missed it as I didn't realise what it was at first, it looks pretty old with a wood body, but it was free :facepalm: :facepalm: :(

First generation and IMHO the best of the series. The arm is a R200 and so, so but they seem to have a cult following. They were a simplified version of the Acos Lustre GST-1 made in Japan for Rega. The RB250 (later arm - Rega Britian) was better and UK made. It is a simple swap.
