I have this unit to listen to CD masters before shipping. I thought I had a great machine for the price! What was my disappointment: it is slow in its reactions and impractical in its handling. Buy as a player at 100 €, it works just as well. The sound is more serious empatté without space.
Before I had a Yamaha player, much cheaper but with a very clear sound and much easier manipulation.
So if you want to buy a player, take something else, you'll save.
I regularly use different CD as part of my profession. I recently had the opportunity to use this camera and especially with another drive with me I could do some comparative tests. I have therefore used very little, however I could test it by "professional" conditions. From the point of view of his I would be very positive, the sound seemed balanced without special shine and without cold either. Converters seem faithful to the reputation of the brand. Many opportunities at the menu but I admit not having come full circle. However, some weaknesses: the threshold setting of the autocue goes no further than-48db reading time is not selectable (although the Tascam goes to -72!): The value of the elapsed time and that the inverse time are displayed simultanéments unfortunately the first value is displayed in the second big small ... which is not very readable but ultimately it is a habit, which I was most general it is the extreme sensibility of the laser reading stops playing fast from any defect or engraving on the smallest trace of dust, however this defect is common to many recent CD turntables ... I do not know why (we find the same defect, and worse, the Tascam 01U Pro) is a bit stressful conditions, "spectacle". To summarize it seems that the quality of CD decks Pro is increasingly neglected by manufacturers who must think this way broadcast will be replaced by reading via computer.
