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: I love the product.It allows me to listen continously without having to stop and reload dis.I am a little disappointed because this was suppose to be new in the package but the remote control is missing.How ever it is a great product
Summary: I still loved listening to my CDs @ home so I wore out my 5 disc player. CD players are very hard to find in about any stores now. Was looking for a new/unused & multi player, but not large multi player (50-400 CDs player). This player fits my needs. package was carefully pack (original package in another box). Don't know how it works because haven't set it up, yet.
Summary: Mon 12/27/2010 12:44 pm. I bought it 6/10 and it died 12/24/10 or 25. And I realized all these changer machines must come to an end like this; when a CD gets stuck. The symptom of approaching doom is, of course, it won't close; press "off" and it says whatever it says forever and never turns off. After I took it apart, I found Vivaldi's The Four Seasons crushed and broken like a bug; however I got the other 24 CDs out more-or-less intact.
Summary: This is in part my own fault I suppose. I refused to give in to the ipod and give up my CD collection. So I looked and looked for an affordable 25 - 50 disc changer. I found this one used and thought viola! It arrived looking decidedly thrift shop find, a bit like a relic in fact, but I thought oh well- if it works so what? So It wont be winning any snazzy equipment beauty contests. Unfortunately there seems to be some issue with loading the CD's.
Summary: My gen-x son just asked me "who still plays cds?" to which I said, "I do and prefer it to mp3s." This Pioneer CD player has played flawlessly every day that I have owned it. The only improvement would be a remote control, but, since my stereo system is on a remote--no big deal.
