I use this board since 2003 and never any problems.
perfect reading cd / cdr / cdrw ..., impeccable function loop, pitch + / -15% handy feature antichocindispensable memory, boot-up.
No complaints on this deck compared to many of Gemini 2003.
My favorite feature is the addition of stereo audio effects such as flanger, filter or reverb, it's really excellent and unique I think.
When the price / quality ratio, I think that it was valid in relation to all the features offered. At the time I bought this board € 1059, it was very expensive but in the end I am confused because I never had to repair it or even the desire to change because it is very very reliable.
