    Witch Hat can service my ACD3 it seems. However, owing to a backlog I’m looking at autumn. In the meantime I need something half decent to tide me over. What’s out there?
    Here at home I’m reduced to a Rega Saturn(pre R) which is increasingly struggling to read discs.
    Budget up to 1K

    How about an hot-rodded Arcam Alpha 5+?

    Way below your budget, same chipset and laser mech as your ACD3 and it'll give your ACD3 a run for its money!

    PM me if you're interested.

    Or get something like a Sony CDP-555esd or Marantz CD94 and never have to worry about needing another CD player again.

    I'd look for a mint Rotel RCD-965BX. Superb as a CD player and as a transport.

    I have a Tascam CD RW 700, which has excellent sound quality.
    With original remote, which you need for full operation.
    Yours for £100.
