Bottom Line:   
I own two of these, daisy chained together. One works o.k., the other has constant problems, either not playing at all, or playing wrong cd. Keyboard also has keys that don't work.

Don't buy this model--try something else. Very expensive to fix and hard to keep repaired and working.

Bottom Line:   
Sound quality is better using optical output. I just bought a new Sony 400 which I now have daisy=chained with the 210 & this changer. All three are now controled through a Nirvis Slink-e computer interface (see my 400 review). I can now search for individual albums or track and program and save them on custom playlists. Fantastic!

Bottom Line:   
I have the 200 as the slave to the 300 disc mega changers to conveniently listen to all 487 of my CD's. They are all linked toether using the Sony A1 line. So rad! They are all plugged into my 777ES receiver. I hit play on one player, both turn on the receiver switches on and turns to CD. You can set two players so they shuffle between the other, either by disc, group- blend them together - or one song stops the other starts. This is the best way to totally name and conveniently group, store, and play your discs by music type. I even have a Christmas group that was so easy to entertain family with. Perfect. I just wish that the Sony remote for 777ES or the 50ES would download ALL titles, not from just one player. But thats a different review. Buy it and enjoy!

Bottom Line:   
Somebody at Sony should have QA'd this a bit more. I have seen the problem with the CDs not playing unless you power down. That is a nuisance. The real killer is when it jams in shuffle mode, then spins to attempt to get the next CD. This causes the changer to force the jammed CDs against all of the adjacent CDs (forcing them out of their slots) and the case of the unit. When it isn't able to spin the carousol, it figures that it should try again. and again. and again. and again. Finally, after 10 tries, it gives up and displays "ERR" on the display. You can then force the door open and remove all 200 of your CDs, most of which will now be completely out of their slots, and some of which may be shattered. Took the unit in twice so far, and they finally gave me a new one. This one hasn't jammed yet (got it today), but has troubles playing a song without skipping. Will probably try to get my money back...
