      Advantages

      • Reliability

      Disadvantages

      Reliable quality

      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.
