Summary: We got this to replace my original CD player which was from the 1980s. We had also been looking for a way to play my iPod through the stereo, so when I saw that this had a USB connector, I decided it was well worth paying extra to get that feature. It's wonderful to be able to hear my cds through a real stereo system again, and wonderful to be able to play things right from the iPod instead of having to find the cd, or having to burn one for things we bought as MP3s.
Summary: This is really a 3.5 star rating... I had a chance to compare the Yamaha with a similarly priced NAD C 516BEE and a few other lower priced units. I thought that Yamaha sounded fine, but a little to "bright", with upper mid-range a little too prominent for my taste, and a certain un-welcome shrillness in the louder passages.
