Great Product

I purchased this product to record all my old vinyl records, cassette tapes, and reel-to-reel tapes to CD's. Have recorded over 200 records and tapes so far and it works great. Have another 140 to go. Reproduction is perfect. Am using the analog connections with old stereo equipment with no problem. Yes, you have to use music cd's. Data cd's are for computers. It is a little difficult to learn, but what computer based product isn't. Finished CD's work in my car cd player and portable cd units...

This recorder is a lot easier than trying to hook up something to a computer and record to the computer then transfer to a CD.

OK, but frustrating

I've been using this to transfer LPs to CD and also made mixed music CDs. When it works, it's great. However, I've had numerous problems with the labeling device, trying to copy a CD I've made, and numerous "errors" with completed CDs. The sound is very good, and recording from an analog source will actually improve the quality of the sound, but I've had to throw out dozens of discs due to TOC errors or editing errors, and so on, using several different brands of blank music CDs.

Works Well

By

from Denver

Purchased this CD changer to replace a 20 year old Yamaha CD player. It plays CDs without problems. Haven't tried the MP3 function yet, but that is less important to me. Hopefully it will last as long as the Yamaha.

A Good CD Changer

By

from Gilbertsville, PA  -  Sound Guy

Very pleased with this unit. I deducted one star due to the noisy mechanism when changing between discs. A minor annoyance. This replaced an old Teac disc changer that does not have digital audio out. The USB slot is a nice touch. Haven't tried recording to a flash drive yet, but it looks pretty straight forward.

Great Product from a very good supplier!

By

from Vero Beach, FL

I wanted this particular CD changer because I wanted the ability to rotate CD's automatically via the all CD shuffle. The sound is superior to my MP3 player and Sony players have always been reliable. This item was on back order and Adorama offered me the chance to cancel or wait for restock. They kept me informed and shipped the player out to me in just a few days. The Adorama experience was great and I will definitely use them again!

Shopper  Does it have AM/FM radio as well?
John F  No, it doesn't have any sort of radio or tuner. Strictly a five CD player with an added USB input for playing music/voice from a flash drive; also, it has no internal amplifier, but needs to be plugged into an existing amp of some kind. I have it plugged into a 3.5 mm plugin on my desktop stereo for amplification/playback. So far I am very pleased with this CD player and recommend it highly for the quality and price.
