Sony CDP-XA7ES vs CEC TL-1 transport

I'm using CEC TL-1 transport for about a year but get tired of it's inability to read all types of CDs. So I'm looking for a replacement. Something not very expensive - about 1000-1500 USD. The first candidate is Sony CDP-XA7ES. Any thought about this unit?
Sony CDP-XA7ES. This one brings fond memories. I used to own one about 13 to 14 years ago and you are considering one now.

It is surely a wonderful unit but due to age, I would be wary. The thing is built like a brick and the sliding drawer is solid and slick in its operation. The main concern with very old CD players is reliability. I would pick a top-loader instead of a sliding one if you are going for used units more than 10 years old.
Thank you all for the replies! I've ordered a new laser for my TL-1. Will try to replace it first.
Need to say that with the new laser my CEC has no problems with discs now! Cheap and very easy to replace) Interesting that the new laser mechanism has a metal body while the old one is made of plastic...

Btw what grease should I use for laser's rails and for plastic gears?
That is good news Alex and I hope you have many happy years with your CECT transport. 
@alex_bolotnikov Alex, do you still own CEC or moved somewhere?
Looking at TL1 or Esoteric P0: lots of thought. On one hand, we have completely analogue sound, while countless reliability issues, on the other hand, a deep, transparent and sharp sound of the finest and most reliable transport on the market ever made. Just sold my TL3 3.0... looking for other options.
