Excerpt: I bought this for around a $100 almost 3 years ago, and I’m sure that it can be found for quite a bit cheaper now then it was then. I guess the hardest part would actually be finding the system now but I’m sure if you look hard enough you could fine one. So I would take a look at this, or even a different pioneer system it’s held well, and I haven’t had any problems with the machine breaking down or anything of that sort, and it’s 3 years old now so it’s doing good.
Summary: Looked forward to getting this cd player. Thought since refurbished to factory, etc. would be a good deal as I cannot get a new one. Doesn't work -- only will play first twelve then 13-25 indicates 'NO DISC". Hope can get repaired -- I am confined to home due to disabilities and need my music.
Summary: I love this cd changer, and the fact it holds 25 cds. I have an old sony 5 cd changer in the other room, which does have a remote by the way, but with only five cds being played it runs out of songs soon. I fill up the Pioneer changer, hit shuffle, and almost never get bored with the music. I don't know how its programmed to play on shuffle, but it doesn't seem to replay the same songs too often.
Summary: I received the Pioneer PD-F407 CD player, and once I loaded the CD Carousel, every single CD skipped badly throughout the CD. Each and every song, on every single CD, skipped numerous times during the play. Let the buyer beware.
Great player, fits my shop / man cave stereo system to a "T".

Summary: I needed something to replace a Sony 5 disc CD/DVD player in my shop that decided that it only wanted to play the disc's it wanted to play when it wanted to play them and most of the time that was never. I spend a lot of time in my shop and having some background music going on just makes for a better experience. The FM reception in the shop is marginal at best because of the metal siding and some of the large power machinery causes interference.
Summary: Great value for the money when bought at a deep discount from original list, which I did on Ebay. Extremely easy to use compared to the multiple-hundred disc CD players like Sony's CD300. No remote is actually a blessing. You can still set up play lists, but how many of us do? This is a one button operation for me: just put in a bunch of classical CDs, & hit play.
Good Choice if you don't need large capacity or a remote.

Summary: I don't need a CD jukebox with 100 or 300 disc capacity so this one is perfect for my application. In terms of weight and dimension, this unit is very light and not as deep as the larger capacity models. However, in random play mode, it takes too long to start the next song.
Summary: the 25-disc cd file changer is very cool. I am very happy with it. It is very convenient during my full work day and its design is a perfect match to my stereo and its size fits perfectly on the shelf right next to my stereo. The sound is excellent and it looks and functions like it's brand new. It arrived in it's original box in a shipping box fully protected and easy to open as well. Its worth every penny and I thank you very much.
