    Hi all,

    I need to replace the beige/tan coloured cogged wheel in my Arcam Alpha 5 that opens the CD drawer, as all the teeth are broken off it :rolleyes:

    Anyone know where I can get a replacement from?

    Cheers,

    Fraser

    Talk to Kevin at http://theaudiocellar.co.uk/. He is based in Bicester, near Oxford. He did the modifications to my Alpha 5+ (and an A5 as well). His charges are very reasonable and he knows his stuff with Arcam and Audiolab kit.

    If you feel up to it, you can fit the part yourself but thanks to some lack of thought on Arcams part you need to take the main board out of the player to get at the pulley system. To do this, you basically have to gut the unit. It only took kevin about 15 minutes to sought mine out a few weeks ago.

    Just a thought you can sometimes get the whole draw assembly ...the thinking is if one cogs had it chances are there maybe problems elsewhere. cdm9 going to be a problem though !
