REGA: Apollo-R- Inherent Glitch?

This is my second Rega Apollo-R....Lovely CD Player!

This example was built around early (ish) 2017. So probably, one of the last batches made. It's replacement is now the curved looking Apollo (non R).

Like the first Apollo-R I had prior, this one also sometimes freezes. Switching the unit off/back on etc the oddity disappears. The freeze returns again after a few weeks.

There have been reports from other users of the very same CD Player that have experienced the same thing.

Wondering if this ''freeze'' is inherent with most Apollo-R?

I believe my first Apollo-R was built around 2014/2015.
