Summary: Overall I like this player, however there are some unforgivable bugs with this player that keep it from getting 5 stars. Everything with this player is awsome except for the few problems I have found so far. I am somewhat of a weirdo when it comes to what music I listen to, I like video game music and on my commute to work this summer (40 min) or to school in the fall-spring (3 hours to get there) I need something to pass the time and the great melodies/harmonies/etc.
Great CD player for this price! It looks nice, feels durable and has great performance!

Summary: STRENGTHS: great battery life; anti-skip; digital volume control; equalizer with 3 preset curves; 18 playback modes; digital Mega Bass; Auto Shut Off; car kit with remote control; plays regular CDs, MP3, WMA, and Atrac3plus files recorded on CD-R, or CD-RW; uses 2 AA batteries. It supports ID3 tagging, info about song title and singer if you properly named music files during CD burning. WEAKNESSES: Included headphones are OK, not great.
Summary: I wanted an MP3 player for the car to use cheap disposable discs in. I got that and more. Very nice. The only complaint is it does not recognise I turned off the engine and automatically power-off, but this is only a very minor thing. Excellent!
Summary: The editor review nicely covers almost all the features of this player, with a few exceptions. This player supports VBR MP3s, and according to Sony, the battery life when playing MP3 CDs is 65 hours. One not so great feature is that the battery compartment is inside the player, so if you need to change the batteries, you have to open the player, remove any CD that might be in it, and then you have access to the battery compartment.
Summary: I purchased this player 4 days back and I played some MP3 songs in car. When the car is running on road and some noise is there outside, then you feel that that sound is a bit low and cannot hear properly. Also, some hissing is there if you increase the volume of the car casseet player. The headphones in the pack are not good. Only one earpiece sounds and another does not.
Summary: My old Sony Discman (car-ready) died some days ago, so I bought the newest Sony car-ready CD player (D-NE306CK). Playing mp3's in my car is great, but there is on thing that bugs the hell out of me. In the earlier model Sony car-ready player, there was a 'line-out' plug that the cassette adapter plugged into; this model does not have one.
Summary: I'm starting to think that the perfect portable CD/MP3 just doesn't exist. Or, if it does, I just can't find it. The in-dash CD player in my car broke so for the six months or so I've been using an iPod but I want to have the capability to listen to an actual CD once in a while rather than navigate 90 million iPod menus. This CD player couldn't have been a bigger failure.
Summary: The Sony D-NE306CK works as advertised. I bought mine to mainly use as a CD\MP3 player in the van. The car-kit does an admirable job of transfering the music from the Sony to the vans audio system. There is some noise from the cassette adapter, but I found lowering the volume on the van stereo in conjunction w/increasing the volume on the Sony pretty much much eliminates the noise. The skip protection works great.
