Bottom Line:   
I have this unit for more than 10 years now, never once opened the cover, never cleaned the lens etc. It still works perfectly. Changed 3 amps, 4 sets of speakers, etc. etc. but PG440 still works. The only missing thing is it hasn't got a digital output but I believe that is quite normal for its age.

Bottom Line:   
I have a Technics SL-PG440 (recently renamed the SL-PG450 with a smallerremote). It is a single disc unit with 32 times oversampling, a 12 db level control on the remote,index keys for the first 10 tracks, a time fade, a programmable synchro link for dubbing, auto cue, peak search, and of course skip and search buttons. The peak search allows you to find ~the loudest spot on the cd you are dubbing in order to set your record level lower than the peak of the tape deck. Unit is very durable except the rca jacks in back tend to wear out,
but if your are mechanically inclined you can solder them better than the
original connection and they won't come loose again. The unit is very hard
(i.e. pick it up about an inch high and drop it if you want it to skip)It has a duralbe/quiet loading tray and has never scrathed one of my CD's. I
recommend this unit for permanent hookups such as churches radio stations,
hi-fi home stereos, or high quality dubbing needs. My rating is four stars
because the rca output jacks should be more durable.
