I am trying to find a replacement for a SOHW-1673S. I found in the forums that the SOHW-1693S should be compatible. However, it seems both models are so old that you can't buy them anymore. I did find a couple of used 1673's on e-bay, but I am leary of buying a used drive since the one I currently have has started to generate a lot of coasters. I imagine the life span on these things is limited.
I need something with direct compatibility as it will go into my LVC-9006. I already replaced the original drive (DDW-813S) in the 9006 with the 1673 a couple of years ago.
Can anyone tell me of a newer drive that would be directly compatible with the SOHW-1673S?
