I pulled out an old CD5 which I haven’t used in a while. It recognizes, reads, and plays CDs, but there is no output. Last time I used this player it was paired with a Flatcap 2. Now I am trying to use it as a standalone. I have tried different DIN to RCA cables (with UnitiLite and UnitiQute 2B) and Naim DIN to DIN cables (with Nait 1, NAC42/NAP 110), to no avail. Any thoughts or suggestions for addressing this would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Ah… Switch off and try plugging the link plug in and out a few times. Leave it plugged in and then switch on and try playing a disc again. If no joy then it could be a failure somewhere. @NeilS may have some ideas there.
One thing I have noticed is that when I turn the CD5 on, unplug the output cable in the back and then plug it in again, there is a change in the sound through the speakers–a small bump in volume or background noise, quiet but noticeable. So it appears that there is an output signal from the player, but no music, despite the fact that it is reading and playing CDs.
