CDS3 back after some TLC in Salisbury

After a long patient wait my CDS3 is finally back. It was sent back to the UK for a service DAC change and transport checkout.
Many thanks guys and also to the staff at musicline to fully service and recap of my system purchased in 2004.
I was also lucky to get new tweeters for the SL2 from musicline as well.
It’s really singing…
Currently listening to a CD Dexter Gordon Ballads.
Best Regards


Did you have the DAC changed?

Yes. One channel was distorted.
The transport was also refurbished as well. The player sounds great now. I now have two great digital sources now that are really quite comparable.
It’s a long story but I thought I had lightening damage so got everything serviced apart from the CDS3 but the problem was with the CDS3. Anyhow it was all due for a service.


Yeah, making hifi lighter usually damages it…

When I heard they had found a cure for dyslexia….

It was like music to my arse :wink:


Glad they could replace your laser transport. You were one of the lucky few…

I don’t think it was replaced. It was checked out and/or refurbished… it was a DAC that was replaced which I believe is still possible. Anyway it’s back and so far so good. Sounding wonderful.

Would just like to add I guess this is what we pay for as well that kit is serviceable.
