We have gone through a few 5-disc CD Changer and this Rotel unit is one of the better built ones. It was warmer sounding than the Denon and Pioneer pieces we had before and, in our opinion, is slightly better built. Its musicality is particularly important especially with CD changers because of the hours of music it can be playing and you don’t want a player that will sound fatiguing after 2 hours. In fact, it looks every bit like a serious audio player with its rack handles. We have the original remote control.
Cosmetically, the player looks good. Some minor scuff marks here and there (some on the remote control) but nothing major. Player will be securely packed for safe shipping. Transport screws will be screwed in during shipping.
