In all my use of the item it has never let me down It compats with its Trio Ka 1500 (circa 1976) no switching noise The moving of the playing unit to the cd not moving the cd to the playing means less wear & tear on the sometimes frigile cds good design

Strength:

Speed of disc changes, relatively quiet

Weakness:

naming disks is time consuming, uses an odd remote frequency that my older technics remote doesn't have and my two sony universals won't control it either

No problems for over 1 year now, I wish the CD player would memorize the CD instead of the slot so that when I pulled a CD out to use in the car etc., I wouldn't have to search for the slot it is supposed to go back into. Sound quality is OK for a bargain CD player. The Kenwood and Sony changers were both noisey, slow and slightly harder to use. I actually bought the technics, returned it, bought the Kenwood and returned it, bought the Sony and returned it and bought a technics again.

Strength:

Fast, great price, convenience.

Weakness:

Hard to read the slot numbers on the inside(no interior light when you open it).

Absolutely wonderful, did allot of research before buying and discovered that the Technics was the most reliable because it doesn't use a carousel. Sounds just as good as it’s similarly priced competitors. Customer service from Technics was surprisingly good. Last week my dog destroyed the remote and Technics had a new one delivered to me in about 72 hours. They only charged me $8.00 for the remote and $3.00 for shipping (that’s almost cheaper than a good dog bone!). I highly recommend this product, what a steal for this price (around $170.00 these days). Used to think Technics was a crap brand before but have found new respect for their products after my experience with the 110+1.

Strength:

Quick Access, Good Sound Quality

This is a great 100+ CD changer. To me, the primary thing you should be looking for in a major changer is changing speed. Although I only have about 60 CDs in it, change speed was about an average 10 seconds on complete random to go from one track on one CD to another track on another CD.

The CD player sounds great and although I haven't used the disc naming feature, it seems to be an okay setup.

The remote has a little shaky layout (I think the next track buttons should be relocated), but my Sony remote DOES support the signal, so you can use another remote (although I couldn't figure out how to change CDs on it).

Great changer, cost me about $170 at Best Buy

Strength:

Speed. The access time for this jukebox are the quickest in the industry (i.e. about twice as fast as the Sony line.

Weakness:

Entering text names for albums and artists is quite tedious

After using a 100 disc + jukebox for only a few minutes, I wonder why anyone would ever buy a single-disc player, or even a five-disk player. The convenient access provided by a fast jukebox makes Marshall McLuhans goal of 'plenary retrieval' a reality. I found myself listening to CDs I hadn't heard in years simply because it was so easy to find and play them using alphabetical search on the SL-MC6. But for a real revelation, there's nothing like setting random across the entire library of genres for an eclectic mix of classical, pops, rock and folk. This is truly a breakthrough product. The juxtaposition of different styles and even different artists reveals the hidden riches of each.

I got this CD player from Vanns for $170 on sale. The price for the other brands of 100 disc cd changers with cd-text (like pioneer and sony) were all around $250, so I figured I got a good deal. The feature of being able to open the whole front of the cd changer to change cds while it's playing is excellent. The guy that reviewed the SC-3 (60+1 disc changer) said "don't expect it to push out much juice..." hmmmm, I don't think CD players have much to do with that. That's more like your receiver's job. The sound from it is basically the same sound any CD player under $400 puts out. I don't regret the purchase at all, and plan to keep this player for a long time. The only thing that is lacking from it that most cd changers have is some sort of link connector to hook it up to a compatible Technics receiver. That doesn't matter, though, because I don't have a Technics receiver. The cd-text allows you to use capital and small letters, numbers, and about 100 various symbols. You can have 5 different groups of music (with no limit on how many CDs are in each group) and you can name each group (such as one group for rock, one for rap, etc.). It switches CDs in about 8.5 seconds which is a bit faster than the Pioneer 25-disc changer I had before. It has 2 blue lights about 6 inches long that give it a nice blue glow, although it's a bit bright at night. If you're scared of the dark, it makes a nice night light and plays up to almost a week's worth of constant music without playing the same song twice! That's more than I can say for the local radio stations. Overall: an excellent CD changer for those of you with over 50 CDs and under $200 to spend on a player.
