Summary: All seems to be in order. The machine is solid and nicely finished. So far it has worked just fine. I am giving only 4 stars simply because it is really not "compact", and if it is, then I am desillusioned with the other electronic makers and their gigantic CD players.
Excerpt: I moved last year and finally unpacked my CD's and bought this CD player to go with a Yamaha receiver. My funds were limited so I couldn't afford a higher end player. I chose this one based on price and reviews (tech and customers). Very happy with it! Very simple set up, Great Sound!
Pros: Attractive Design, Doesn't Skip, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Summary: This is a fine unit to get cleaned-up sound from your Cd's. I use mine for background music and can tell a marked difference from the old "black era" player that I replaced it with.....if you are an audiophile you'll need to add a digit to the price to find a better one...
Summary: I have had the player for about 3 weeks now. Really enjoy that it plays my MP3 CDs and has no trouble reading them. The sound quality from this player is great. Love all the functions, easy to use remote and the simplicity of the player. Great quality CD player for the price.
Pros: Plays MP3 CDs no problem, great sound quality, great price and seems to be very well built.
