This Panasonic mini hi-fi is a solid dependable unit. It doesn't have the same old problems I've experienced with other multiple CD changer units (jamming, skipping, switching off etc.) It features great sound quality and great bass in a compact attractive shell. One very useful feature is that it can play MP3 CDs so you can potentially store 750 songs on the five CDs. This makes it ideal for making mixes for parties, and the aux function means I can run my computer through it and get a great room-filling sound. This replaced another Panasonic unit that I had had for 18 years and this new one has not disappointed yet. This may be the last hi-fi system that I buy and I think it does a great job of being backwards and forwards compatible, but the tape player, in fairness, has not had much use, so is somewhat superfluous.
