Item itself is nice (design, controls, weight, features and sound) - for this its represents good quality BUT it stops when it comes to the CD player. When I tried a dozen CD's it fell flat on playback (numerous skips and clicks thruout playback) on 'every single track on every single CD' ! All were thoroughly cleaned prior to inserting - most were newer AND one was only played once before. Know issue is with item since I have 4 other CD players (3 are separate component players and one PC burner/player) that all these CD's and the 100 or so others have all play in without any issues at all - and they aren't new components. Believe issue is with this players optical sensitivity that reads the discs s either too high or damaged. But like I say the rest of the items features and sound quality are very good. Shame I had to resort to return the item which was no issue at all to complete.
