I picked up a Sony XA30ES CD player.
The Puck was missing so it was pretty cheap. I bought a puck for a different model. I looked at some pictures of my Sony on Google images with their puck sitting on top of the player.vThe puck looked right. I measured the gap in the player with a Vernier guage to make sure the puck would fit through. That was fine but the spindle on the player was too big for the puck. I drilled the hole in the puck and deliberately went right through because the original hole didn't go right through. Did that, put a disc in bunged on the puck (after cleaning it properly and hey presto the player works beautifully. It's a very nice quality player and it sounds excellent too.17039835007893454146440028149891.jpg

I'm selling these back to the original owner David. He was really missing them, and gutted that he sold them. He bought them in Australia, while living in New Zealand and realised they're irriplacable to him. He had owned them for years. I decided not to make a penny out of him. Just covering my costs for the restoration minus the diesel to go and fetch them.
Add to that the fact that I realised I prefer the smaller 805s for my set up and space which I couldn't have kept just gathering dust and wasn't willing to part with them.
They definitely suit my amp better than the big ones. I enjoyed the challenge of doing them up as well.IMG_20240107_133646.jpgIMG_20240107_133609.jpgfa
