Overview Details Accessories

Keep the party going for hours with Sony's CDP-CE500 disc changer. Load up to five of your favourite CDs, CD-Rs, or CD-RWs, and let the changer play each one straight through, or choose shuffle play for a surprise mix from any combination of discs. The player's Ex-Change feature lets you swap out up to four of your discs without stopping the music. Plus, the 'CE-500 expands your listening options with a front-panel USB port. Just plug in a flash drive loaded with tunes to play them back through your stereo. You can even transfer music directly from your CDs onto the flash drive. All recording is done in the MP3 format so you can fit hours of your favourites on a single drive.

The remote lets you control the changer from a comfortable seat, and its direct access buttons let you quickly locate specific songs or program a customized playlist of tracks. You also get front-panel controls for quick, easy track selection right from the player. An optical digital output lets you make a crystal-clear direct digital connection to an external DAC (digital-to-analog converter) or home theatre receiver.

Sony CDP-CE500 Reviews

Good product March-12-15
Reviewer: Bruce from Maryland  
I read the reviews of this CD player before I bought it and debated buying one much more expensive.  This unit is fine -- even superior.  We have a 300 disc carousel and my wife complains that discs disappear in it, meaning that she never knows quite what she is choosing until it plays.  With this unit it is easy to have a new 5 CD selection each time and to know just what is being played.

Sony's Last Carousel Is A Great One March-10-15
Reviewer: Mister Sterling from New York, NY  
Back in 2006, I bought a Denon DCM-290 carousel CD changer, partly because Sony didn't have a model as good as this. And while my Denon is working fine, I prefer the Sony brand, to compliment my other Sony components. This is a fine CD player. The design clean and in-line with some of the best CD players Sony made in the 1990s. It also has a USB port so you can play MP3 and AAC audio files (it can access folders and subfolders to find the files). It also records CDs onto a USB sticks in real-time (in MP3 format only). I suppose this is useful for building massive playlists for continuous playback. But if you need to quickly rip a CD track to MP3 for AAC format, a laptop or desktop computer is still best. This has an optical digital output (toslink), so you can connect it to your receiver for optimal digital to analog conversion.

Exactly as Expected February-03-15
Reviewer: FTS from Lookout Mountain, GA  
Just exactly what I needed and expected.  I have a number of multi-disk recordings of piano and orchestral music which I like to play for hours.  For my needs, it's perfect.  Crutchfield's expert advisors are exceptional.  Thanks.
