Summary: I did a lot of recording on the pro grade Denon 550 and I beleive the 1500 is every bit as good. I have not compared the specs, but my ears are very good. The 1500 weighs less to me, so not as much metal pehaps, but still heftier that most recorders out there. Some folks say heft dosen't matter, but it matters to me. I like heavy metal, love it in fact. Denon is always tops in sound quality, longevity, and overall build. You can't go wrong here.
Summary: It's in perfect condition just like you said.I would definately buy from you again.the only thing I don't like is not having the owner's manual, but I'll get by without it.Thank you again for a wonderful product that I know I'll enjoy for a long time.I decided to buy it because I have about a thousand cassettes to convert into digital format and after seeing the quality of this cdr I know they're in good hand as far as converting them digitally cause I tried several...
Summary: I bought this unit after my harmon-kardon CDR recorder died. I thought buying the Denon unit was "cheaper" than having the previous unit fixed. Am still trying to figure out how to dub from analog sources,i.e. LPs, tapes, concerts on video, etc. Not exactly user friendly.
Summary: I was looking forward to using the Denon cd recorder. The owner/operator manual is poorly written. It seemed every step refers to another step on a different page. I returned the Denon to J&R. Upon receiving my credit I purchased a Teac cd recorder from J&R, which was very simple to set up. The manual was easy to read and well-organized. The cdr's I've made so far (about 30) sound as good as the source cd.
Summary: This unit delivers everything that you'd expect for its price range. It is my opinion that while the manual is not well written and lacks straight forward operational directions, you can figure it out fairly quickly. There were a few surprises: remote does not include power on/off control, and this unit does only 2x dubbing. On a very positive note, this recorder/player has a very "solid" feel. All mechanical operations show careful consideration in the unit's design.
Summary: The federal government sent me an economic stimulus check and I spent it on this. At the very beginning, I was puzzled by and slow to work the various functions, but that didn't last. Recording from different sources is easy and the onscreen guide is friendly. (I will agree with another reviewer that the instruction manual could have been designed better.) After two months, I love this thing!
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Controls, Great Sound
Summary: Der Denon CDR-W 1500 ist zum Kopieren von CD´s sicher einer der besten CD Recorder. Er ist einfach zu bedienen und die Qualität der Aufnahmen sind sehr gut. Natürlich ist der Klang von bespielten CD´s zum anhören auch sehr gut. Ich bin mit den von mir im eBay erworbenen CD Recorder sehr zufrieden.
