Bottom Line:   
when i first bought this unit, i was comparing it to the sonys. though the guts of this unit are sony, i bought this one on the better apperance and the nakamichi name. i believe i made the right decision. having a jukebox at your disposal is a great thing. never have had any type of misloading or any other problems at all with this unit. it cant have 5 stars but nothing in the mega-changers can. an all around practical idea and a well worth one.

Bottom Line:   
It's really hard to rate this unit. For function, it serves its purpose very well. For sound, it leaves much to be desired. I've had this unit for about 1 year now and have tried different component configurations with it (receivers, speakers). Transport system is noisey and the remote control leaves a lot to be desired. On the plus side, it has been reliable and can read CD's that my HK FL8300 will not (when its not out for repair).Overall, I'd give it a 4 as I doubt if there are any mega changers that are worthy of a 5.

Bottom Line:   
Although hardly an audiophile piece, the Nakamichi (Sony) CDC-300 serves a purpose. The ability to eat 200 CDs is pretty handy and have them at ready access without dust getting to em.
Sonically it's no Pink Triangle, although most of range is OK. Treble is a little harsh and depth of image could be better, but what do you expect?

I've put a 16" bike tube under mine half inflated which helped a bit. I'll try mass loading it too for improvement.

Buy it for the convenience!

Bottom Line:   
ive now owned this player for a couple of months. one of the first realizations that i had is that you are basically paying for cd storage with these large changers. though it has worked fine, i still miss some of the features of my 5-disc player.....though it is nice not having to change discs all of the time. the cdc-300 is big and bulky, and kind of dwarfs some of your other components. as well, loading this full with 200 cd's can take out a chunk of your day. this model is the same player as the sony cdp-cx205 exept for a different faceplate and remote. however, you will be paying around $20 more for the nakamichi name. overall, i am basically happy with this unit. however, for $300 i could have gotten a better cd PLAYER.....not just something to hold all of my cd's in.
