Who also own this fantastic playing CD player from the early 90'??

I own mine from late 1992 and it has been playing beautifully 'till earlier this week; the motorized pickup didn't go high enough to load the CD and it says No Disc in the display.
I opened up the unit and dismantled the CD tray, lubricated the wormwheel with silicone grease and now it's working perfectly again! :)
I also cleaned the lens with some IPA alcohol but that was just because I was fiddling inside the unit anyway.

I previously connected it via SP/DIF optical to my receiver but found the good old analog output sounded far better with some high quality cinch cables and gold plated plugs I had laying around. It's now connected to an 1999 build Sony STR-DB930 receiver and the sound is just crisp and clear... it's surely a keeper for me! :)
