I've been using this to transfer LPs to CD and also made mixed music CDs. When it works, it's great. However, I've had numerous problems with the labeling device, trying to copy a CD I've made, and numerous "errors" with completed CDs. The sound is very good, and recording from an analog source will actually improve the quality of the sound, but I've had to throw out dozens of discs due to TOC errors or editing errors, and so on, using several different brands of blank music CDs.

          Comments about Sony Black 5-Disc CD Changer:

          Overall, I'm pleased with the performance of this CD player. However, it will occasionally report a "media error" message during playback from a USB flash drive. When this occurs, playback stops and awaits my input. This doesn't occur very frequently, and there doesn't appear to be any pattern to it. Onboard processing and/or memory are apparently lacking because, when playing from a USB device, the USB device's activity light flashes constantly. This means the CD player doesn't have the hardware necessary to "buffer" the media to prevent skipping and media errors.

          I'm still fairly pleased with the operation of the unit, and I got it at a great price over the holidays.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Shipping was very prompt, and communication was great throughout the entire process. Item was well packaged and received no shipping damage. Free shipping was a definite plus as well.
