Summary: The best I can say for the Denon DCM-27 is that it lived long enough to get out of warranty. We've owned this CD changer - from a supposedly high-end manufacturer - for all of two years, playing it sparingly. And now it's done.
Summary: The sound is really good but, as a previous reviewer said, it works fine only for simple, sequential disk playing. The random mode takes endless time to start the next track or disk. In addition, not always recognizes the disks.
Summary: I purchased this as an upgrade to a similar unit bought 17 years ago. This DCM-27 has features the earlier model did not have: MP3 and WMA capability, most notably. The unit, now made in China, has the look, feel and heft one has come to expect from electronics made there.
Summary: This player provides a poor user experience for anything other than simple, sequential play. In random play mode it doesn't pick the next track till the current one finishes, and then it takes 15-20 seconds to choose the next track with the player making clunking and squealing noises the whole time.
