4 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 26 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "So far so good, it took me over four hours to load my 250+ disc, leaving room for disc not yet purchased. I got a cheap key broad to input infor, But I have not had the time to sit and play with it as of yet. But it does what the reviews said it would do... I am not sure about the random play option, I would rather just listen to a whole cd and then choose the next one by myself. "

better than reviews
5 Star Review   By bobopunkin on Adorama - Jun 30, 2012   

Better sound than i thought. I used to play my cd's through my dvd player sony sr 500 and it sounded good. I kept reading reviews on getting a cd player , but wasn't sure if there was a difference on sound quality. why should there be? i was using my hdmi

Overall performance is great
4 Star Review   By jimg52 on Adorama - Dec 13, 2008   

Upgraded from a JVC 200 disc jukebox. The extra slots and ability to connect additional units very useful. Keyboard entry of disc names is phenominal, but 13 character title is too restrictive. Longer entries with display scrolling needed. Custom delete file is great to eliminate that undesired track. Basic operation is straight forward, but changing a disc is difficult. A lever to lift disc out where it can be removed would improve handling. Solid overall performer.

Third time is not a charm
2 Star Review   By member gsholer - Nov 15, 2008   

Strengths: Capacity is great and easy to use

Weakness: I am on my third unit in one week, still trying to get one that works correctly and will play my CDs

First unit had CD alignment errors, Second one wouldn't play lots of my CDs and would get lost in shuttle mode. Third unit has more issues playing same CDs that second unit errored on. even though CDs are in great condition.

Sony 300 Disc Changer
5 Star Review   By member TennFan - May 27, 2008   

Strengths: Easy to set up. Directions Clear. Readily available Interfaced with Pioneer amplifier easily

Weakness: Yes it is large and the slots for the discs are very close but it is not heavy and easily managed. Measure your cabinet space before you buy.

We have a bunch of discs and this device makes it easy to play any one we like with minimal hassle. The interface for 13 characters of input using a normal computer keyboard is quick and adequate.

Extremely Large Changer
5 Star Review   By member Xyberion1K3 - May 13, 2008   

Strengths: It holds 300 CD's, you can use your computer keyboard to input info (artist, songs, etc.), looks great, sounds phenomenal.

Weakness: Extremely, extremely large piece of equipment.

First thing you will notice about this CD changer is how very large it is; it has to be large to hold 300 CD's. The actual dimensions are: 7 5/8"H x 17"W x 19 1/8"D (depth is from big knob on from to box-like extrusion on back). After you get past its size, you will notice its fine qualities. This piece of audio equipment holds 300 CD's, it sounds extremely good, it looks very good. I like the feature on the front where I can plug in a standard computer keyboard (does not need any software or operating system). I am going to build a new stereo system around this Sony changer, all Sony components. You will like the way the front door opens and closes to add and remove disks (discs). It is so easy to hook up, unbelievably easy. I will have to read the manual to see what this thing can really do. I recommend it. Hey! Buy this Sony.

Great addition to my system
5 Star Review   By member phguastella - Jan 5, 2008   

Strengths: Easy to set up. Quiet when changing discs unlike my old 5 disc changer which made clunkey sounds.

Weakness: Directions for using a keyboard to input disc information a little hard to understand.

On top of having immediate access to 300 discs it is a real space saver. Once you load your discs into the changer you can store all the jewel cases in your attic or basement freeing up all that space in your stereo cabinet. I compiled a list of my discs with corresponding number in the changer and I always know where everything is. It is very easy to use either by the remote or the unit itself and sounds great.

Great CD Player but skips after time
2 Star Review     

Strengths: Hold loads of CD's

Weakness: Check reviews on Amazon. Others have complained about skipping after about 5 years.

Great CD player for a while. After about 4 years it started skipping and is about unusable now. Too bad there aren't other products out there with this capacity.

Great Idea but...
3 Star Review     

Strengths: Setup Price

Weakness: Time to change disks Time to choose in shuffle Service

Works fine except in shuffle. Each ~14 tracks it goes into stuckness. Warranty is via exchange, but no exchanges are available right now! The Sony 200 disc I replaced had no problems for 5 years. Was able to use the 200 disc remote on this one. Also quibble that if you hit the big knob (closing entertainment centre door for instance) it goes into a funny mode.

5 Star Review   By member kevinbear89 - Jul 8, 2005   

Strengths: Easy to use, easy to set up and follow instructions.

Weakness: A little large.

Great way to listen to music, we set it up with 6 driffrent groups of music, and can listen to 1 cd, or 1 group or all the cd's in order or shuffle mode, lableling the CD's was very easy as well as labeling the Groups. And the Sound is great.

5 Star Review   By member JJ471 - Feb 14, 2005   

Strengths: This unit is very user friendly. If you have alot (300) of CD's, this baby is for you. It's like having a Juke-Box for your CD's and no possibility of being damaged. The remote is easy to use. Love It

Weakness: None that I have found.

You guys had the BEST price around.....most places are charging almost double. I am very satisfied. I would highly recommend this unit. If storage space is at a premium, this will solve the problem. No more cases stacked upon cases. Thanks!

Great product! Though it is a little bit bulky, the Sony Megastorage juke box works great with in-ceiling speakers. I would definitely purchase the jukebox again.
