Great player, fits my shop / man cave stereo system to a "T".
17 February 2012
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.
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.
Summary: This is a great product. I load it with 25 discs, and I usually select random play. It will play every track on every disc one time in random order. I turn it on in the morning and it plays all day. I'm very pleased with it. You can also program it to play your favorites from different discs.
Summary: Use this in my garage ,replaced a Pioneer 100+1changer I've had for 12 years..works great ,no remote ,but I don't miss it while I'm in the garage..great procuct for the money,probably would have cost as much or more to have my other changer fixed if I could have found someone to fix it..no problems and have no regrets.
Summary: Pioneer does a great job building components, my wife was complaining that the 5-CD changer (brand X), she had in her store was giving her problems and employees would not play the music because they could not keep it playing... So I purchased the PIONEER unit which had space for 25 CD's now she and her employees love to play a greater variety of music now, and her sales in CD's have increased... and there is no more complaining about the CD changer not working.
Summary: Very easy to install, load and operate. 25 discs are just enough to have a good long-running mix of different types of music. I like the custom program feature. Lack of a disc/track title indidcator is not an issue as the unit is out of sight and we know who we're listening to when they're playing. Lack of a remote also not an issue as we usually just turn it on and let it run in the background.
