i know everyone hates sony but i love this cd player.it doesnt skip, it has a 13 band EQ,time alignment and 3 sets of 4volt preouts.since i dont have an ipod or anything like that i dont know how the mp3 control is on this but its really easy to use.you can set up the EQ for every speaker so you can make it sound perfect for everybody.this is better then my old pioneer 7700 and way easier to use.i dont think i would ever need another cd player ever.so i would recommend this cd player to anyone that wants to get a good cd player and for cheap.it usually sells for around 160 shipped.
well i havent found anything wrong with this cd player besides that you cant fast foward or rewind without the remote but thats alright cause i always have my remote.but dont be afraid of this sony cd player
