Bottom Line:   
This unit sounds good. I wanted a decent sounding 200 cd player with custom file and the ability to delete unwanted tracks. Programming the titles, organizing groups, and deleting tracks required several days. What a grind! The ES player with a keyboard input cost several hundred dollars more. Recently turned down a 80 ES player new in the box for $249 because I new the programming would be such a hassle. This unit is very dumb, (can only delete, not select track order, also does not remember disc, only the slot number location, unlike my 9 year old sony CPD C70 5 disc). Once set up it's ok, a little noisy and slow. Prehaps the newer units have gotten smarter, or at least cheaper. Tip:When you put liner notes into the provided folders use both cover and back notes so you can find the titles for the songs later. You will run out of pages when displaying both. A mega album for 4x6 photos holds them all...though imperfectly. Remove (noUCE) for replies.

Bottom Line:   
Sounds okay, possibly overly sweet and rolled off for most audiophiles, but
fine if you are playing it through mid-fi equipment which is probably all
it deserves.

Only comes with 2 cd booklet portfolios which each hold 50 booklets. Obviously, you need 2 more of these. _lame_. For this egregious
disrespect to the consumer, I'd have to give only 1 star. To add insult
to injury, there does not seem to be a place to buy these things.
(If you know of one, send me a note at jmairey@hotmail.com, I'm still
looking, thanks)

Also, this is the second unit. On the first one, I connected a portable
cd player to the aux inputs to allow easy one-off playing and it came through completely broken up. Basically that input was fried.

Bottom Line:   
Sonys ES entry 200 changer. I've had it a few months now and it is great. Replaced a Marantz single player. Bought home this and a Denon 560. The Denon was very compressed sounding, also very noisy tray. I have lots of cdr's some of which caused the Marantz to stumble but the Sony plays every one. 5 year warranty on the ES line is nice too. You can find this online for about $500.
