Hello friends!

I have this old Kenwood XD 500 minicomponent system, it is 15 years old.

Today, it suddenly stopped reading any CD. It says "No Disc" after attempting many, many times and many CD I just got tired.

I put discs on the tray as always and try time and again, but it keeps trying to read them but it just skips and skips until it shows "No Disc"

I guess this needs repair

But what do you think? Is it better to replace it with something new?

What you recommend?

I want something smaller than the Kenwood XD 500, don't need much power I live in a small room really but want dynamic range.

I listen 99% of the time to Opera and Classical Music a lot and it requires a huge dynamic range specially for high pitched soprano voices. So speakers better have super tweeters yeah!

Ok Im looking for nothing fancy, just average quality, want something reliable that would last another 15 years or so (LOL) and that it is smaller because as I said, I live in a small room. I need no much power.

Something that can play MP3 files that you can connect a USB stick

It doesn't need to be iPod compatible, I don't even own an iPod.

Just something good quality

Im gonna miss my XD 500 speakers with super tweeters inculded they are so great!! (Would I keep those speakers?)

My budget? About USD400-500

What are the good brands nowadays?

Thanks in advance!!
