My story is similar to Shadorne's, I have 4 Sony universal 5-disc players, and have never had a single problem with any of them for about the same amount of time and used daily. I have had several more expensive players in the past, Denon 2900, McIntosh MVP-861, Sony SCD-C333ES, that have given me nothing but grief.
4est - I want to get there eventually, but its just too expensive to do it right. What gear would you recommend?
Sid42 - interesting that the 333 gave you grief, I thought these were some of the more reliable changers out there. Disappointing to hear that. I used a Yamaha changer for 15 years, not a single jam or freeze-up.
Loomis - I've read your posts about Integra before, leaning toward this or the Sony 595 per Buconero. Sidenote - Best Buy recently quit carrying the 595.
Thanks for all the comments. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the Rotel RCC-1055? Been looking at these for a while, they're pricey, but it would match my amp...!
remo, if you're up for dropping the $$$ the rotel and the arcam mcd (which i recently sold) are probably the best changers extant---to my ears they sound about as good as their makers' well-regarded single disc players. the older rotel 955 is also very good. if you're using a good external dac (which i am with the integra), you might not find the differences cost-effective.
