I've had this for 12 years, and used it for sampling from in my studio, via the optical output. Nowadays it sits in my separates system, and I simply use the phono outs instead. I've never know it skip a track, and it often plays CD's that wouldn't work on other players. Design wise, it still looks modern even today, with grey matt plastics and blacked out displays; both the unit and the remote have a pleasing minimalism about them, with firm to press buttons. The display is LED, and the player operates very quietly- the drawer is particularly quiet when opening, and moves in a smooth, almost hydraulic manner. The front mounted 1/4" headphone socket has its own level control for easy monitoring. So whether using in a studio as a reliable audio source, or in a home separates system, this reliable and stylish CD player will make a quality addition to your set up.
Fine as a first 'separate ' cd-player, sound quality is average. - Advantages: Fairly cheap., Has 'features'., Well constructed. - Disadvantages: False economy., Features are mostly unecessary., Produces a 'flat' sound.
