Transport mechanism maximum "life".

I've been informed by a manufacturer tht the maximum life of the CDM12Pro for example is 10 years.
This is something new for me; there are very expensive players with maximum life too short.
I suspect that many last longer, and the manufacturer is informing you of what they find to typically be the case. If yours has not yet failed I wouldn't worry about it.
Depending, really, how much you use it. Mine, using the machine daily 5-6 hours, had to replace after 5 years.
