Excerpt: Plays discs well. Playing in shuffle mode from discs not great. Takes too long between songs before play restarts. However if you transfer the discs to a flash drive in the USB port and shuffle the songs on the flash drive it works great with minimal time between songs.
Excerpt: We have had this player for about a month and use it when entertaining to have a select variety of CDs in background. It has been on the mark so far. Shuffle is usually used and it is odd how you can only access it on the remote, but once you load and select shuffle, you do not have to do anything the rest of the night. Seems to have allowable lag time between songs, since it is used during entertaining I do not notice a huge gap.
Pros: Attractive Design, Doesn't Skip, Durable, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Excerpt: I bought this CD changer to replace an aging Sony 5-disc ES series changer. CDs are now commodity items and Sony has positioned this player accordingly. Performance is great. I'm using the toslink output and an external DAC. For the price, this is an excellent buy.
Excerpt: Had the previous generation of this CD player for AT LEAST 10 years. Used it almost daily FOR HOURS. I'm a classic jazz buff with hundreds of CDs who hasn't learned to download into a computer. This player is simply a solid workhorse that's easy to use. No downside.
Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Excerpt: Easy to set up, but hard to see what all the buttons (controls) did. My eyes are not that good. I did discover that my JVC amplifier had CD imputs that did not operate, however, the device worked fine when connected to the JVC Aux inputs. Not the fault of the Sony CD Player. A little different that I am used to as far as the flat rotating CD storage in device, but the mechanics seem to function well.
Pros: Attractive Design, Can't Tell About Sound Ye, Doesn't Skip, Easy To Set Up
