Replacement laser Pickup

The replacement laser in this listing is VAM1250/21LF / VAM 1254 type. This is the last iteration of the Philips VAM laser family, designed to replace VAM 1250 which is now discontinued in production. There are repaired VAM1250 units available in the market, but these don’t compare in terms of quality with the newly manufactured, latest VAM 1254 units. This laser supplied directly replaces the laser in the VAM1250/21LF mechanism as designed by Philips.


The LF in VAM1250/21LF stands for Long liFe but many lasers are now reaching the end of this extended life.

The VAM 1254 CD laser pickup supplied with this listing is individually tested in the UK before dispatch in a VAM1250/21LF mechanism.

This testing ensures flawless performance and right-first-time repairs. I have used these lasers from our suppliers for four years+ with no playback issues. I am confident of the quality of these parts. AUDIO NOTE CDT 2 3 4 5 6 CD players deserve only the best quality and most reliable lasers available.


Confirm the laser type fitted to your AUDIO NOTE CDT 2 3 4 5 6 before purchase. Please use the second image in the listing to confirm compatibility with the laser in the listing.
