I have recently had the drive in my PWT replaced, prior to replacement I had a problem with intermittent skipping on music I played. No mater what I did, changing output methods all brought the same results. I sent the PWT in to have the drive replaced. On its return I heard some of the best sound I have ever heard com from a CD. Now i used to have a Wadia 850, which had no problems reading any disc in my collection. It would occasionally lock-up, maybe two times a year. Within an hour of putting the PWT back in the system it stopped mid song and was locked up. I had to do a hard reset. It later skipped. Within the first 24 hours I had to hard reset 3 times. Seems to be a bit much. The sound was wonderful, but to have the music all of the sudden stop is upsetting.
I am looking for a solution to a very irritating problem. I not sure I want to keep the unit if this continues, it just happened again while I am writing this. I don’t know what to do. I can’t in good conscience sell it, knowing that the new owner will simply inherit the same problem. I just want to enjoy my music as I have in the past without always wondering when the next lock-up or skipping fit will occur.
