As CD player not that great, muddy and slow even if some sense of detail and space; usually sold for too much as an used integrated player.
As a transport it's a different story, good one but full potential still not there for the price because of servo's PCB not really a modern piece of electronic. Modifications can be found on Internet, like good clock for digita/SPDIF IC and real IC decoupling. Then you are on par with Wadia and such.
So if your are going to mod and keep it it's one of the best bargain as a transport, else you can find better for less. Laser head availability is also a concern.

VRDS-10 multiple problems

I bought this new circa 1992 and it has given me no problems until 3 years ago when the internal DAC packed up. Have used a D-T1 external DAC since which has opened up the sound, improved the bass and improved the clarity of recordings. Most recently, the drawer began to stick and it is now impossible to insert a CD.

The unit currently resides with TASCAM who inform me that the mechanism is totally non functional, there is absolutely no Digital Output from the unit and that there is a burn up on the PSU/ PCB. Their theory is that the loading motor has seized and caused the power supply to draw high current and hence the problem.

The problem is the sourcing of components and I await feedback on this. In the meantime, does anyone have any ideas how to fix this, as I am reluctant to dump what has been a superb CD player?
