The PDR-99 is a CD recorder. But we really see it as an affordable Stable Platter CD player instead. We have not tried its recording feature but we have listen to it as a CD player and came off very impressed with its sound. If you need to burn a disc, its far easier to do it on a computer. The Stable Platter mechanism is undoubtedly the star of the show. Remember the days when Stable Platter CD players from Pioneer were garnering all kinds of positive reviews from around the World? At under $200 now, this is an affordable way to get into the Stable Platter World.
Cosmetically, the player looks good. Minor scuff marks here and there and a small dimple on the top cover. Original remote is included and unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
