A general advice: look for the weight. As a rule of thumb I'd dare say: The heavier the more durable.
Short story: in the eighties, I wanted to buy a CD-player. But I haden't any clue how to select. So I walked through the shelves and weighed every model in my hands. Finally I bought the heaviest one, not knowing what I had bought.
Some years later it turned out, that this was the best CD-player on the market, it was an Onkyo. The weight came from the toroidal transformer inside - something which one hardly finds in consumer electronics at the low end. In that time I had never heard about Onkyo, but I picked the best player just because I believe in the rule that heavier components are statistically better than light ones. ;-)
