- For how long have you been using it?
A few hours. So i'll update the review at a later date.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
The sound is detailed & clear & dynamic, all good!
The player is SOOOO SLOW!!! Takes ages to read a disc & start playing...really annoying.
There is a slight tick when need to be close to hear it though.
Also, it has optical out and no coax.

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I had a Philips CD723 before this. It was less bulky, looked better, was 10 times faster & had volume on the remote.

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
The sound is great, sure, but every player should have volume on the remote and it's unforgiveable that the damn thing is so slow. If it had been £60 i could understand, but it was £110 (actually it was 159,50€).

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?...
No. I'd go for one that has volume on the remote, and i'd try to find a faster one.
