Excerpt: Even if I don’t use the random option, and simply try to play a CD or two, sometimes the CD doesn’t load or isn’t detected while other times the CD will play for some time and then just stop. It seems continuous play isn’t an option when it comes to this CD changer . Ultimately, I ended up returning the changer and getting a full refund.
Summary: when i received the item, i plugged it in..it powered up. with that and the fact that it was manufactured in 4/2010, i felt confident that i would have no problems. the item sat for a few weeks until i was ready to put together a bedroom system. after putting a cd in, i realized i should have tested it when i received it more extensively. the unit does not work. the seller says tough luck. the right thing would have been a refund for the item.
