Decent CD player, but it’s a 5-disc.

I hate 5-disc players. Just cause it’s more shit to go wrong. And also, I really hate ‘searching’ for the disc (between trays, waiting for it to spin around).

But when I bought this, 5-discs were all that seemed to be available, unless you wanted a higher-end CD player, but as I was using an external DAC, I didn’t want to spend for what I wouldn’t be using.

Yeah, unit felt like plastic, but it worked.
