I used it since 2001 but very little, he had less than 500 hours work almost exclusively for reading. Failed and not repairable or cost more expensive than New ... I have an older one that has worked a lot, CDR 870, it is much better and more serious, but worth 3 times more expensive.
The sole interest of the CDR 600 is the CD Text on the beautiful display.
And to record CDs for those (those?) Who are allergic to the PC in 2011 because it's much more convenient ...
Question recording quality is not very good, the electronic records of interference during silent passages, and reading level is correct, the sound is pretty cool, pretty cool, fine, but not at all upscale. Not for audiophiles. That said, rather better than a drive current of less than 500 euros for those I have recently heard a sound catastrophic, even worse for the amps in these prices ....
A search on the net shows an enormous amount of copies of the CDR 600 do not exceed a few years of life ..
About Me I am looking for a used repair mine (Because at Philips uniquely able to fix it-not-sure: hello the price ...) but it's really just because I'm addicted to beautiful CD text display because I do all my CDs on a PC with CD text!
Voilou, I'll glue it 5 Because the beautiful display CD Text, looks great (but plastic), the nine that price was 200 euros max, the sound playback is correct even when seen what happens to our days but the pay is good for Hungarian (s) who made it!
