Any master list of machines for which no replacement parts are available (transports come to mind), maybe with emphasis on expensive models that are or will shortly become doorstops?

Thanks.

CDs, aren’t going anywhere . There’s still a huge market regardless of what some would have you believe. A number of high end manufacturers have recently released new players. Still and always will sound better than streaming does. I see a serious resurgence of the silver disc just like what has happened with vinyl records. : :D

LOL. Not in this world.When a digital format is at the end of the line, there is no resurgence.

To answer the original post, most cd players do not have spares. It would be easier to list the ones that do. Bryston and Rega both have spare drives on hand. Maybe Teac. I am sure there are a few others, but mainly there are no spares or they are very expensive NOS parts.

It's cheap and easy to produce. It's a long lasting physical media. And there is no replacement on the horizon for it. It's been outdated for 20 years and it's still around. At this point it's here to stay.

It will be here for a bit longer but production will cease before you know it.Two or three years.If not sooner.

It's best just to post the transports/lasers
KSS-190A
... and many others

That said, almost any machine can be refurbished, with parts units.

Sorry.

I think that dedicated CD players are a product which are largely a thing of the past. I can’t see any boutique manufacturers keeping stock of transports and other parts at this time.

I thought I was safe owning an Oppo multi player, but look where that has gone. That must be a reflection of the market at large, if Oppo can’t make disc players viable.

Unless someone will make money from such a list, it will not exist...
