Ive had this Sony CDP-502ES' machine for well over 30 years. Had other machine in between but always kept & used this. I noticed a small static  sound at times, yesterday but ignored it, today it was happening again. Swapped it out for another machine, which was ok.. This could be anything, but im pointing the finger at a faulty DAC chip. There is no Digital output on this machine so cant bypass the DAC circuit. Looks like that is it, too uneconomical to fix me thinks. 

Only one thing left now  is a File based system..I wanted to avoid using lossless files as a primary source but my hand looks to be forced. Shame cos this machine is built like a tank & sounds really good.

Just buy a cheap CD player.
 
Digital all sounds the same.
It can't sound different  one CD player to another FFS . It's just 1's and 0's .

That's where you are wrong Bozo. CD player sound different. That old Sony sounds totally different to the newer one. 

They are the pair of DAC chips required

Well it sound fine. Bonus is because the Line level Pre amplifier circuit is passive i hooked the headphone amp to the amps tape outputs which will let me listen to headphones with the amplifier turned off.

Looks like its my lucky day. I fixed the old CD player. It was a dry solder joint on the RCA output sockets. 

cheers . Re solder them but ive ordered a brand new pair exactly the same. 

Back to the Techy amp then.. Karns original early 80's System he had back in the day.. Just need a taller cabinet so i can house the CD player inside + a pair of 2U Rack mount brackets..

CD Player looks Grey but its actually exactly the same colour as the the Techy gear..

Been trying to think what speakers i had with that system. It came to me while i was supping Tea.

Twas a pair of Mission '727'

Exactly the same as those. But i had some Target stands instead
