Greetings, haven't been here for a while. I was doing some maintenance on my Arcam DV-88, which I use as a CD player, but seldom. The belt was bad, so I replaced it, and found that the CD played like it was dirty and there were pops and electrical sounds. I cleaned the CD and ran a cleaning disk on the laser, but the CD sound didn't improve. Just for grins, I put in a DVD-Audio disk and it played perfectly and sounded great.
The question is....what's wrong with the CD side of things? The unit has only one laser, so it has to be good, right? I was guessing something to do with the wiring from the transport to elsewhere but didn't see anything obvious. A couple of pics are included. Just got the SM from Electrotanya, and unfortunately that's no help to me, maybe to someone with more expertise in digital players.
Thanks for any enlightenment on this thing. It's a good sounding unit for CDs and it plays DVD-Audio, which my Sony player won't.
