Excerpt: This was recommended by an audio authority as one of two budget players to buy. This unit has brought my collection back to life. It's very quiet, and well thought out. At this price point, you can't go wrong!
Summary: the product was defective on arrival in terms of operation as the speed of the servomotor spinning the CD varied so much as this was like listening to karaoke or DJs spinning LPs. I tried different formats of CDs,all the same result.
