When i first bought my 100 Disc changer it was one of those fads, one of those things that i thought , "well, even if i dont use it that often it still looks pretty" . Now a few years on the player has had hours upon hours of trouble free usage.
The player is based on Sony electronics and is as good as it gets for CD Changers, yes there are others, nowadays you can get 200,300 and even 400 disc changers, but this is the one that caught my eye the most.. The player is equipped with a front screen which allows you to input the name of the CD loaded at that particular position. These positions can be accessed (but not played at the same time) using the jog file function. There are other functions that allow the grouping of Cd's into different genres or artists or whatever you choose. A remote comes as standard with the player and a timer function as well as the ability to shuffle.
Ah yes, the shuffle function, imagine it, 100 CD's each with potentially 20 songs on , you press the shuffle and play (shuffle all discs that is, there is also the chance to shuffle just one discs trakcs) and press play and away you go. Or how about random? The chance to randomly play any one of 2,000 songs is great for music quizzes.
Supplied with the player is a book which you can hold your inlay cards in from your cd covers (store the discs wisely though)
The Cd easily plugs into an amplifier using the usual red and white phono style plugs, the remote takes standard AAA batteries and the CD's load from the front (see picture)
All in all i would say if you are offered one of these players, take that chance straight away as this is one of the better innovations that Sony came up with.
The unit costs brand new around £399 and, whilst I tend to find that Sony units do cost more than the average, the price you pay is well worth the little bit extra.
