dAD3 CD Player

Postby Drdax » Sat Jan 12, 2019 6:28 pm

Hi All,

I’ve been lurking on here for a month or so now after buying a Cyrus III amp which I’m very happy with. I’ve always loved Cyrus and Mission stuff ever since my uncle bought a Cyrus 1 brand new back in the day. He still has it and uses regularly.

I’ve been using the amp with a Pro-ject Debut II and some Mission 700 speakers. I’ve decided I wanted a Cyrus CD player to go with the setup. I ended up buying a project dAD3 with Q24 module fitted. I thought the laser would require replacing as it wouldn’t read discs but then found out the discs won’t even spin. I then found an old post on here regarding a capacitor that can leak. I found this on the board and it had indeed leaked. I’ve now soldered in a new 10uf 25v one but still no joy. Could I still have a problem with the laser mechanism? I don’t really want to spend more on something that is possibly beyond repair.

Thanks Chris
