I purchased this player to replace a Sony 10-CD player that I owned for probably close to 20 yrs. The only reason that one failed was due to operator error. I'm expecting the same longevity from this player and perhaps longer because of its simpler design. Though this one holds half the number of discs, my user experience indicates that 5 CDs should be more than enough to supply background music for the duration of the next dinner party or some Sunday morning jazz at breakfast.
Great CD player, nice price
Easy setup, ready to go right from the box, sound is great as well. Controls and display are well designed, even the remote is nicely designed and easy to use.
