I replaced my Plextor DVD/ CD burner, in my pc, with a Pioneer Blue Ray, DVD and CD burner. Still works perfectly after many years. I burn cd's to play in my car, and I burn HD files to play in my Oppo.
How about the professional HHB CD830 Plus cd burner? I've got two of them and want to sell one. Excellent condition, remote included. The "Plus" version has XLR connections, as well as RCA connections.
