Summary: I've had this for a while now. speakers are blown... some of the cds I play skip really bad. At one time the Cds were stuck and I was unable to play any cds. until I beat the crap out of it lol. and wow the CD came out haha. I've lost my antenna so I can't listen to the radio. Can someone please tell me what antenna I can buy that would work with this? I have no clue.
Summary: Many people have reported that CDs can get stuck in the machine and a MECHA ERROR message is displayed. After which you cannot play or eject any of the CDs in the unit. Sometimes unplugging the system and restarting it has helped get it working again, but, sooner or later, a CD will get stuck again. It's a design flaw. Very frustrating!!
Summary: I got this system abut 5 years ago, and it still serves me beautifulily. I originally got it because I wanted a good, high-quality CD player and stereo. When I purchased it, I was about 8, and I really didn't know anything about what was good or bad, but I guess I picked good, because my dad is still telling me to turn it down because he can feel the vibrations on the other side of the house. The sound quality is incredible.
Summary: I bought this system for my wife 4 years back for < 150$. It has been working great so far. Sony is horrible for its slot loading CD changers. I have the DC-7 home theater system from Sony and it always hangs while loading CDs or DVDs. But this guy has not given any problems. It looks great with its silver finish. And the best thing is the sound is great for its size. I have in my living room and it is great for back-ground music.
Summary: Just like all the other reviews, my Sony CD player stopped working after using it approximately 20 times. The sound is great - but not when it doesn't work. It too has eaten my CDs. I took it to a local shop to repair it. Cost $30 just to investigate and I never got an estimate to fix after 2 months in the shop. What a waste! Don't buy!
Summary: I have this toy for already 4 years and still happy with it. It sounds great even for a bigger room. Have read many negative reviews, specially over the timing it takes to recognize, read and play a CD be it regular music CD, MP3 or a CDR - it really take a while but this isn't such a big annoying issue! Its sound quality compensates it all!
Summary: I think about a week from today, this thing broke on me. I've had it for about 4 months, and you guess it, the CD changer broke. I had a CD stuck in it, and it took me a long time for me to get it out. I eventually did. The radio and tape player still work, but the CD player is completely dead. I'm returning it tomorrow hoping that 1) it was just a malfunction that won't happen again and 2) that the store will actually take it back for a new one.
Summary: It was fine until one day about 7 months after I bought it the cd player stopped working due to a mechanical error and would not eject the 5 cd's I had in there. I called "support" but because I didn't still have the receipt they were unable and unwilling to help me. Save yourself the frustration and buy something else. Anything else.
