    This is the second of these units I have purchased for my church. We've had the first one for a couple of years, and it has been very reliable. So when we needed to replace another player, I decided to buy another of the Tascam CD-355's. The balanced outputs are great for lowest noise and highest sound quality. The only reason I gave this item a 4, and not a 5, is that it takes longer than I would like for it to switch between CDs.

    After reading other blogs, I was expecting good things from this machine. However, the turntable moves really slow, it is very slow to read disks, ans often has a hard time reading mp3 and wav files. The remote only works for up to ten feet away. I assume it will last well, but I'm dissapointed.

      You don't really need an open/close button or on/off button on the remote. The main thing about this machine is the great sound and stability of the unit. I am a Sirius XM user but every now and then I play my collected CDs.

          I think this is a good player.
          It does have a slow open feature, but it is quiet.
          It takes a little time to Load the CD up for play.
          It does look very professional in Rack.
          Nice bright pause light, very helpful.

                      It is hard to find a 5-Disc CD player. But this is a 5-Disc CD/MP3 player that is rack-mountable. I bought this for a sound system in a bar. It is perfect and could be used in so many other applications.
