Summary: I didn't know that the CD player did not have it's own built in amplifier. No mention of this fact in the description. It also needs seperate speakers, not mentioned either. Had an old CD player that had both things. Using this one, plugged into the old one. No one seems to know what amplifier I need. My old speakers work with it.
Just a little ticked off.
Info on an amplifier would be appreciated.
If you love your cds, you might be advised to stay away

Summary: Generally,it's a good multiple player will tons of features. The sound is good,etc. BUT, on two occasions it has malfunctioned - it does not replace the cd back in the tray correctly and you have cds bumping and banging against each other. Very stressful indeed! I cannot trust it anymore. I'm sending it off for service after 8 months of use.
Summary: This is my 3rd Sony 300 CD Changer. The first one lasted 4 years, the second one lasted 2 years, and now I just set up my 3rd one. We use this for whole house stereo and sound is fine. The problem is the skipping everyone else has reported. To me, it is worth the $7 month it will cost me when this one goes out in 2 years. I looked at other models but reports indicated poor sound quality...so I stuck with this disposable Sony.
Summary: From some of the reviews of this product, it appears that Sony has yet to rectify some of the problems inherent in its predecessor, the CX300 CD player, which also held 300 discs. My CX300 is two years old and still works, but I can count on it to jam about once or twice a month. Most times the jam is the result of the machine trying to put a disc into the wrong slot after playing it and it gets stuck against another CD.
Summary: I purchased a Sony CDPCX355 300 disc changer and, like other reviewers, spent time organizing and loading my discs. Right from the get go it started skipping songs, skipping discs, and refusing to play. I was unable to get a refund and figured I would ultimately have a fairly nice boat anchor when I needed a new one. Before I unloaded it I decided to leave the unit powered up with the door open.
