I keep NOT buying a player because of this issue. Wasn't there a company still making them that just stopped a few years ago? How complex are they? Any chance anyone will be able to supply new ones ever going forward?

oh boy, so, for any ced player its really a shot in the dark, it could be as easy as the belts, or loose screw making things squeak. but anything past that such as a defective armature, problem with the cogs, etc. its gonna mostly be a dead player, unless in the cogs scenario you can cad file yourself a new one. as for the needles, they are diamond tips i know that, but iirc they have some special material in them to make it conductive, and theres a few coils like a CD player so it can track correctly, so to reproduce them would be a little difficult to say the least unless you have the right manufacturing equipment. i havent heard of someone making new ones, but if they do or did lmk! its such a needed part and while mine still going, the ebay prices are extremely bonkers.

Yeah, about 15-20 years ago there was someone on the CED magic forum that would refurbish the stylus, or so they said but I never kept the format
that long to find out.

It wasn't worth the risk for me.
