Summary: My G*d, I believe I bought this back in 2000 so that means I've been using it for 11 YEARS! It's really been an amazing ride with this unit. I've put all my CD cases in boxes and stowed them away.
Summary: This is a great product. You can program musical groupings to fit your listening mood. You may play random tracks from your full musical collection or just from the categories (program groups) you select. I sometimes allow the changer to play in random mode for hours at a time.
Summary: On the plus side: The sound quality is excellent. The grouping, text display, search, and other functions are great. It's really cool having 300 CDs at your fingertips. On the minus side: Random shuffle play is a little frustrating, because it takes a good 10-15 seconds to unload a disc, choose...
Summary: I got one of these about 2 years ago. I chucked all my jewel cases and got my shelf space back. I love the random play and being able to ban disliked tracks. It survived a move and spending 8 months in storage (by the way, it remembered all the disc information that I had typed in.
Summary: I have had the same CD player (Denon, single disc)since 1988. It was a great player, but doesn't even play in the random mode. It has been repaired once or twice and is in need again. It was time for new equipment.
Summary: I needed a CD changer, and was deliberating between a 5 disc changer and one of the newer 300 disc changers. In the end I decided to go with the Sony CX-300 as it's a great bargain, and since it was a Sony like my receiver (STR DB-930) I could use my receiver's remote to view the disc titles.
Summary: This is an excellent addition to my stereo system. Despite being a large unit, this 300 CD changer has saved me SO much space--I have said goodbye to jewel boxes forever. I love the grouping and 'hit list' features that allow you to arrange your discs in easily accessible and discernable categories.
Summary: I just got one of these from Amazon. It arrived on-time and undamaged. Thanks Amazon! So far it is amazing, though I have my work cut out for me typing in all the titles to 300 CDs, good thing I can use a keyboard.
