Thanks for the info on the unit, your reviews sealed it.

Summary: I can't say too many things about this unit-but outstanding. I have only had it a few days, but the iPod extended feature is mind blowing. I never had a large CD collection, but I have a very large iTunes collection. When I read the reviews people who wrote & talked about the DAC, one thing I have learned, playing my iTunes through the TEAC, gives the music a sound quality that I never got through a PC or the Bose ear buds.
Summary: Without a doubt this is a good unit, it wasn't until I received it that I found it was not a recorder per say, there is no line in only a line out which didn't fill my need. I returned this in favor of the RW890 as it is a true CD recorder with line in and out. My only issue is the wording in the add gave me the impression it was able to record and in a sense it does but only from a USB source.
Summary: unfortunately, this recorder is extremely limited it what it can do, which is play back cds and record from a ipod, computer or storage device via USB connection ONLY, in todays world there is a great need of a device which can multi task and be able to complete severe tasks needed, and this product does not.
Summary: It's OK, Display is not as great as raving. Just a couple lines. It names files Aux8, etc. The only thing you can record is CD's to a USB stick. You cannot record blank CD's When I saw AUX in the specifications. I thought I'd be able to plug a turntable into it. It was very hard to see a pix of the rear of the unit. If I could have I'd look for RCA inputs, which it did not have. The price of it is OK, so I guess I'll keep it for a backup CD player.
Summary: Now that it's works it plays all my ipod, iphone devices excellently. When it arived I could not get a CD to play for anything. So I to it to an authorized dealer (should of mailed it back to save time) where once they got to it turn out the tracking mechanism was out of wack. turned out to be a simple fix that was coved under warranty. Now I really like it!
