Re: Lincoln CD changer
No way in holy hell would I bother with a Linc dealer. My blood pressure's
high enough from stress and ripoff artists, living in NYC. I foresee $1500
for a $150 Sony changer.
Thanks for answering. You're probably right, better to just buy a new
changer. But I found today that Crutchfield sells replacement magazines. I
don't know why I didn't think of them sooner. I'll call them and ask they're
opinion. I've found they're usually pretty honest, and very knowledgeable.
Like you said, worst case is $150 for a new, better changer.
It's just my habit to strain for the cheaper possibility until the bitter
