Great design if it does what it claims...excited to put the unit to work!

Summary: I bought the Sony Mega Storage CDP-CX355 CD Changer to assist in programming the 500+ Cd collection I have accumulated over the years. I thought the CDP-CX355 would be the way to go for me since I love music immensely. So far I haven't had time to work with all of the 300 CD slots; however, with the upcoming holidays I should be able to get everything the way I want it by the first of the year.
Excerpt: This is an older product, but a good one. Not everyone has music on MP3s, and this player holds 300 CDs in a selectable carousel, with some great programmable options. The sound is good, and there are output choices such as analog, digital, optical. You can also, if you are really obsessive, chain another CD player into it! Some of my older CDs stick occasionally in this player, but all the more recent ones play without sticking. So the player part is somewhat picky...
Summary: i like the fact that it holds 300 cd's but nowhere did it tell me the components i had to buy to make the product workable. when it said cd player, i thought it meant it played cd's. once i get the amplifyer and speakers, i'm sure i'll be more than happy with it. the instuctions don't even tell you what components are compatable with the player.
Summary: Convenient for removing the hundreds of cds off the shelves. Very happy with it so far. I have 30 lb receiver on top, no skipping is happening here. After loading and naming about 150 disks with a keyboard attached, the keyboard became non functional. The instructions say to unplug the keyboard and reconnect to reset. Did it several times, rebooting the changer by turning power off and on, no luck. If you run into a dead keyboard, do this.. Unplug the keyboard.
Summary: Purchased my first CDPCX355 two years ago. Ran it 8 hrs. daily, 6 days a week, and it ran well for the first 18 months. After that, skipping began in the first tracks of most discs. Cleaned the reader eye about every 40 hours. Found that the changing "grip" that retrieves the discs was starting to damage the edges of the discs with scratch marks (comparing original disks with more recent additions).
