Well Harri009, you don't need to really LOL as I do take great care of my CD's by handling them at the edges like an album I have never even put a finger print on them. I have never used any on my CD's in a vehicle or any kind of slot loading CD player. These same CD's that would not work in the ayre played perfectly in my new reference player the "Audio Research CD5, and the Cary Audio Design CD-306 as well as my old Denon DCD-3000, Denon DCD-1520, and a old Kyocera DA-710cx.
Here's what would happen when using the ayre CX-7E mp that I bought brand new. On some CD's it couldn't even read the disc at all and would just get stuck. I couldn't even stop it sometimes to eject the CD. Other times it would play to a certain track number and just fast forward it's self a few minutes and the resume playing, but the worst is when it would be playing and then all of a sudden cause very loud distortion noises to come out of my speakers causing me to reach for the mute button on my preamp remote.
I can't begin to tell you the absolute bull_ _ _ _ I received from the dealer and aye when I called them both to tell them of this problem. In their mind ayre could do no wrong. I finally got the player back from the Company with a clean bill of health as stated by ayre and wouldn't you know it, it still could not play those certain CD's, so with the clean bill of health given to me by ayre I put it up for sale and bought the Audio Research CD5.
I mean no disrespect to anyone who owns ayre and likes them, I'm just telling my experiences with this company and the fact that I would never ever buy a ayre product to put in my system.
