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: I was looking to buy a CD player that would allow me to play mp3s. When I received the PD-F407 I thought it might be a good replacement (especially since I got it for free). I used it for about a week when it strated getting a strange popping noise when it jumped from CD to CD in random mode.
