Bottom Line:   
when i first got the product it worked as advertised made about 30-40 cds of my tape collection,before it started to make rather expensive coasters when it would randomly drop out of the recording mode.and since it uses specialized cd-r audio disks mistakes prove to costly to justify its purchase.then theres the added aggravation of having to make the recoding all at the same time as unlike a tape you cant stop and pick up later/to sum it up ----pro-convenient way to transfer tape to cd[with variable rec. level ] con--media far too expensive in comparison to regular computer cds/ pro--ease of use /con-cant stop the recording and restart later which makes for long recording times if recording various tracks/ although ive been a long time fan of Yamaha in this instance in my opinion the cons win some serious r and d was lacking before this went to market [buyer beware]

This piece of equiptment is awesome. I have recorded a concdert off of MTV burned it onto cd-r and it sounds just as good as a regular live cd. I have also recorded several albums onto cd-r. They sound great. Only complaint on the album transfer, is the scratchy sound in between songs is even picked up. I was also able to record an internet broadcast onto the machine an since you can control the input level I was able to make sure it was not too quite or distorted, sounds great. Above and beyond the great hard disk recording this has a great cd player sounds better than my Pioneer Elite.

Well this site has just about gone to hell. Can't find where to post new products but we can still read reviews of stuff that is 5 years old. This entry is for the NEW! Yamaha CD-r HD1000. 20 gig hard drive, 10x read speed max, 8x record speed max. You can drop either down to 1x or 2x but nothing in between. Makes a dupe copy of a cd in about 15 minutes, this includes read in and burn and finalise. Cool. That much works. Manual is sometimes hard to follow. Not layed out sequentially. Lot's of see page XX and you are on page X or XXX. Tried reading in Led Zep box, 10 discs, no problem and quite amazing at 10X speed. Proceeded to book mark tracks for compling a best of disc, no problem. Copy book marks to an "album", that's what Yamaha calls it. Burn album to CDR. Done. Used 80 minute CDR. They warn that 80's may not be recognised by all CDP's. I have had no probs in the past, till now. Disc will read on ML37 and car all the way thru but you cannot search past track 13 or both CDP's lock up and will not play. Get bad disc error on ML37. I think Yamaha has a problem with writing the TOC at high speed. That's the only reason besides hard disc editing I bought this deck. If it ain't gonna work, it goes back. My Pioneer Elite PDR19RW is slow 1x/1x but is works everytime and any deck can read it's CDR's. Also, on the sound, have detected some added distortion on the dubs, evidently due to high speed read and write. Not sure this product is all the way there yet.

Dear

Reader

The Yamaha CSR-S1000 is a fine product for play back. It is smooth and natural. It does nothing wrong, and has the following traits.

Top. Very smooth, but lacks air. Rating B-

Mid. Nice and open, but lacks warmth. Rating B-

Low. Typical CD bass. Rating B-

I have upgraded my gear many times since the CDR-S1000, but it remains. Below is my latest setup.

Yamaha CRD-S1000
Monster Cable M 1000i
Classe CAP 151
Monster Cable M 2.2s
Vienna Bach
Monster Cable SW 400
Infinity IL100s

While not state of the art, the my cuurent gear is quite respectable. In a nutshell, the Yamaha CDR-S1000 is a nice 24-bit player, which is built quite well. A solid $400 product from Yamaha.

I GOT A DEAL ON THIS. EVERYWHERE I LOOKED IT WAS ATLEAST
450-500 DOLLARS THEN I GOT IT AT 6AVE ELECTRONICS ON A SPEACIAL. LOVE IT. I HAVE IT HOOKED UP WITH OPTICAL CABLES
TO MY YAMAHA 995 AND ALSO TO A YAMAHA 111 DISC CHANGER.
IT IS SO EASY TO MAKE MIXED CD'S. IF YOU CAN FIND ONE GET IT.
