    Unhappy Need help with my Pioneer XD-Z53T Stereo

    Hi all was hopeing maybe someone here could help me, I've had my Pioneer XD-Z53T system for about 15 years, when I got it the CD tracks were not alligned so I had to open it up and put the tracking system back together, that is the only problem I've had with it in all this time up until about 2 weeks ago, I have started to get a very loud hiss from the speakers when a CD is playing, most of the time it is over powering the music. I rang Pioneer support and they think it is the pick up assembly and would have to be replaced which will cost about 150! I have it connected to my pc VIA the AUX connection on the back and audio played fine even when CD's didnt but now I can hear it slowly and almost quietly starting to break through when sound is being played from the PC also. I dont know what to do, I have cleaned it out today and still no joy, stays the same. I dont want to think it is the end as it has lasted this long. Please if someone could help me it would be greatly appriciated, thank you.

    10 years is about the life span of a typical, well used CDP. You have been lucky to have no issues until now. Many don't make it to even 5. Time to buy another. Don't be so attached, there is a whole world of wonderful players out there.

    Maybe deep down inside he knew what the inevitable answer would be and didn't want to hear it...
