Owner of Two...

  • Summary: I am the current owner of 2 of these CD-A500 units and BOTH have constant issues with CD playback. Forget about using lens cleaning discs too, they almost never read, and many CDRs say "no disc" - CDRs burned recently, good CDRs too, not the budget junk, with no wear on them at all.

  • Summary: I've had one of these units for about 15 years I guess [late 90's?]....when I was doing FM radio [18 hours a week m-sat] it had a real workout....cd's in cd's out sampling bits of songs, etc. It's never failed and I'm listening to it as I type.

Have had trouble with unit reading disk...

  • Summary: I have purchased and installed 3 of these units. Two in church sound systems and one in my home. All of the units have had problems reading certain CDs. I get "no disk" errors or it takes a very long time to read the CD, both of which are unacceptable in a unit of this price.

Sturdy, but missing one very important thing...

Audio Tech, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a well built deck that has held up just fine with heavy use. However, I would not buy another one because IT DOES NOT HAVE A REAL TIME COUNTER FOR THE CASSETTE DECK. For a $375 industrial deck, to omit a real time counter is ridiculous.
