Excerpt: I actually own this product. Not sure if piratess does or has becase he/she seems to be reviewing another model if they think that the product has a 'built in radio'...mines certainly doesn't!!! If you are looking for a way to store uncompressed CD's without using a disc changer, then this is the way to go. Sound quality from this players hard drive is excellent...hard drive copies seem to sound better than the originals.
Excerpt: I would not spend this much on a CD player ever again. When you're spending above £450 on a CD player, you're entitled to much more. What the Yamaha CDR-HD1500 does, it does well: Yamaha is reliable, the hard disk capacity is an impressive 250 GB, and there's a built-in radio. The sound quality is impressive, but not life-changing. It's simple to use. Apart from that I'm not really sure what you're paying for.
Pros: reliable brand, good sound quality
Cons: overpriced, limited range of features, boring design
