Summary: I too have always liked Pioneer products. This purchase was to replace an older version that we had for many years. It was better than I expected as it included the opportunity to remotely change disks. I am exceedingly pleased with this purchase!
Summary: I have had a Pioneer 6-disc magazine CD player for 12-13 years without any problems. When the carousel in our Sony CD/tape player quit working, I only wanted to replace it with the Pioneer, a proven product. Not much is different with the new one. Works great for someone who does not need a home theater system...just a nice CD player for the bedroom or office space. I would highly recommend.
Summary: I've had two of these. Each eventually developed the same problem--the servo that moves the laser reader across the disc loses its ability to scan/play the first few minute or so of any CD. It blurbs through. This forces me to be nearby to fast-forward past the servo's difficulty. The great convenience of this machine is that it takes up about half the space of the carousel type. Given my space limitations, I tried a second one because of this.
Summary: I had a very similar Pioneer player from the early 90's that lasted until my baby boy stuffed his toys inside the cartridge slot, almost 20 years. The basic design for this player is unchanged from that era. Its a great design (although your CDs need to be in perfect shape to play). This version, now only 6 months old, refuses to play discs 5 and 6 and will halt with error code 02 if attempted. Good design, cheap build quality.
Summary: this is a player if you got a day where you are working at home all day fill it up and press play, very easy to connect sound is very good i would look to replace when the time comes with the same but updated model, i use it with Pioneer Htp-101 Home Theater Package what a great chioce worth every penny, WE LOVE IT.
