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.
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: I saved for a year to buy this cd changer, bought it a couple of weeks ago, and it will not read any CD ... just lifts them up and moves to the next one but does NOT play at all. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN PIONEER AND ALSO AMAZON FOR SELLING THIS TO ME.
Summary: Worked greart when I bought it and integrated quite nicely with my Pioneer receiver. I was able to use the remote from my Pioneer receiver to control the CD player through the serial remote cable.
Summary: What a waste of money, all $67.97 of it. I have the same problem with the CD lifter getting stuck. I've found that if I Swear at it and bang vigorously on the top of it, it works eventually. This is a piece of crap if you ask me. I would not recomend this CD without a case storage center for anyone unless you want a metallic device to take your anger out on. Sorry but this... thing gets 2 1/2 thumbs down.
