Summary: I need to write down the CD song number before turning off the player. As the player automatically plays the first song when turned-on. My Yamaha DVD S1600 remembers the last song played and starts with the next song when turned-on.
Excerpt: This fit my need for a relatively inexpensive single disc player with good digital/analogue converter. The DAC was my main reason for buying this, and I am very happy. It has given me a new perspective for future digital audio purchases. The look and perceived build quality of the player are also nice.
Pros: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Assemble
A frustrating mix of great sound and poor attention to design detail.

Summary: I ordered this CD player along with player costing half as much from a different manufacturer. I had every intention of using this as my primary deck, and the less expensive one as a backup. It didn't work out that way. Operation of the deck is pretty straightforward. As other reviewers have noted, the drawer doesn't fully open, but that isn't really an issue when it comes to inserting a disc. It is a major pain, however, when REMOVING a disc.
Summary: I use this with a matching Yamaha R-S300 receiver and am completely satisfied. Indeed, unlike some much costlier equipment I have owned, these two machines run smoothly and flawlessly. I am using them with Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 standmount speakers, biwired, and am delighted with what I hear. Highly recommended.
Summary: This an excellent sounding player with a superb feature set for a very reasonable price. iPod interface works exactly as advertised on my 160 GB classic (the original - now maybe 6 or 7 years old). Honestly, it's hard to fathom that a machine of this caliber can be had so reasonably. Oh, and Pro Acoustics gets 5 stars as well.
