Today my secondhand Meridian 206 CD player arrived purchased from eBay, for quite a tidy sum. I spent a fair bit of time chopping the back out of the unit where my previous Denon player sat, made some rearrangements, plugged it all in after following the Merian instructions to the letter, ie remove transit plug, open and close CD draw manually. I put one of my favourite CDs in and was greeted by some strange noises for about 10 seconds and then the dreaded error on the display. No go. I tried several times to get it to play but to no avail. Very disappointing. So I started a return and bought another one, that actually looks better. However it has no transit screw which is a little worrying. Am I mad, I ask myself.
