Summary: I have owned several Sony Discmen. This Discman, the most recent that I bought, has all of the features that I wanted, except one, the most important one--good sound.

Summary: I am not really rating on the item as a whole because I use it just to copy music to my MD Player. This thing rocks. It plays all my CD/CDRs/CDRW audio cds.
