this SUCKS!,, i was listening to Romancing saga 3 ost and as it was changing between disc 2 & 3 the player inside (which raises and lowers to align with the corresponding disc tray being accessed) jammed while clamped down halfway on my disc 3. see the carnage here https://youtu.be/WWk0dEseH4s . i was able to get the discs out by taking the system apart, but when i plugged it back in there is still something messed up and the motor that actuates the grabber height is not functioning.
so now i have two dilemmas,, FIRST: i need to get another copy of RS3 disc 3. SECONDLY, i need to find a replacement home theater system. Ideally i would like a 5 disc changer so it would allow me to load up a 4 disc set and play it straight through ( i work from home), but i know that disc changers are extremely rare nowadays unless purchased as a dedicated standalone component. my JVC TH-C30 was a 1000 watt system that allowed me to hook up the pre-wired 5-channel speakers in my living room ceiling (plus the powered sub). i know a lot of systems out there now use a soundbar but that would defeat the purpose for me.
should i just get the exact one used for $58 https://www.ebay.com/p/JVC-TH-C30-5-1-C … m/98869339 (it doesn't have all the extra crap i dont need since my subwoofer and remote still work) , but otherwise it looks like my chances of finding a disk changer integrated with a 1000w receiver are pretty slim to none. i know some of you guys are extreme audiophiles here and would be eager to chime in with suggestions and recommendationms (jodo?).
the silence in my house this afternoon is like death.
