cd changers are becoming somewhat of a dinosaur, and to my knowledge most manufacturers have stopped making 'em, though i believe sony and onkyo still do. frankly, i'd buy a used one--they're really cheap on ebay. i've always like integra; if she wants to spend more she could find a rotel 1055

Yes, CD changers are becoming somewhat of a dinosaur. For something new, other than Sony, the least reliable, IMHO, the following are available,
Yamaha CD-C600 --- 2 year warranty
Onkyo DX-C390 --- 1 year warranty
Integra CDC-3.4 --- 3 year warranty
The Integra is Onkyo's step up brand and not sold online or mail order, however you can do a search here to see if there are any dealers close to you.
A cd changer is about the last thing I would ever buy used. Yamaha still makes a 5-slot cd changer (cd-c600) which is available on Amazon for $295 new. There are other less expensive new models still made by Sony, Onkyo, and Teac that are also available on Amazon. I'd go with the Yamaha in the hope that its somewhat higher price might suggest at least a little bit better build quality than the others.
