I will start with the only two drawbacks I saw. First, It takes quite a while to load and label all of your CDs (it has no ps2 input for a keyboard). Second, you cannot place it too close to your speakers, the CD player is extremely sensitive. It will skip if you have the bass turned up and the volume too loud. That's it
The player is extremely easy to use and has quite a few features that are great if you entertain (depending on the company you are keeping). You can set up to 8 different genres of music and shuffle within one of these or among all of them. If you are like I am, you have friends that like country music and some that like rock. You can now please everyone. Set the changer to play only country or rock (or anything else you have programmed into it.
This changer, while holding a great amount of CDs, is quite easy to load. It is easy to program, although a ps2 input would make it easier. It can be programmed using the remote or the component itself.
Oh, it looks nice, too.

This unit worked great for the first forty days, which coincidently is past the point of return for most retailers. After that time it developed a very annoying habit of not replacing the cd into the proper slot on the turntable. As a result, the cd would fall into the unit's mechanism. Most of the time, the disc fell clear of the other cds on the turntable. Once it did not, and lodged itself between the playing mechanism and the other cds on the turntable. As a result, it was cracked from centre hole to edge by one of the other discs as they moved by. This was not a "one off" problem; it repeatedly failed to replace discs properly. Naturally the Sony rep I contacted had never heard of such a problem, so it was over to the Sony repair center and a one hour wait just to drop it off. The rep at the repair center stated Sony would reimburse me for the cost of the broken disc, but I am not too optimistic. I have several other Sony audio components that have been trouble-free. Once upon a time, an audio component with the Sony name meant it would perform for years. Those days are apparently history. The only reason I rated it two stars is that for the month or so it worked, it worked very well.

I have tried three different 200-disc changers from Sony: two CX235 models and one CX260. All three were buggy at best, unusable at worst. The first would only pick up CDs about 60 percent of the time. The second picked fine, but was often unable to read the disc once it was picked, even though the same disc would read fine in any other CD player that I own (even the very cheapest). The third one I decided to keep (I guess I'm a slow learner), simply because I got tired of trying new ones and because the store would only issue a store credit for my return.

This last one picks and drops, but it randomly and inconsistently fails to play about 10 percent of my discs. Also, it often whines very loudly from too much wobble, especially between tracks 2 or 3 and 7 or 8. Attempts by a dealer to "balance" the player have been utterly fruitless. Sometimes it will wobble so badly that the CD just won't play. Also, all three units that I tried suffered from bad firmware; they easily got confused about the location of a CD and occasionally had to be unplugged and restarted.

I am now convinced that toy manufacturers are producing finer electronics than Sony Corp these days. And yet...buyers continue to speak reverantly of the mythical "Sony Quality". Where did that ever come from, and why does it persist? As far as I can tell, Sony has become a junk maker. Buyer beware. (By the way, I recently bought a Sony Trinitron TV. A switch inside went on the blink within three months. Until I see signs of a turnaround in the company, I won't buy any more from Sony.)

Great machine, only problem , not really a problem, is that when playing , shuffle all discs, it may take as long as 20 seconds to get from one cut to another, other than that it is more than I expected, good sound ,lots of very helpful features to you find the exact disc or song you want to hear, not at all disappointed

Except for slow changing of discs, especially in shuffle mode, the unit performed well for the first week. After that there has been a repetitive problem of discs not falling properly into their respective slots after play. Sometimes the CDs fall into the interior of the player and can be fished out easily after removing the unit's cover, but often they jam and result in damaged CDs. I no longer use the unit. It is still kept in my audio rack for appearance, as I had to customize the rack to accept a player its size.

I have using my unit for the last five years, and it has worked just fine. The mecanism takes a few seconds to load the discs but never fails and the sound quality is excellent. I have discarded my CD's boxes and kept just the booklets for reference, so I have saved a lot of space and the music room looks ordered. Regular CD's doesnt't come with text, so I make back-up copies on my PC with text included which then the unit saves automatically so I don't have to type each album labels. I'm very satisfied with my Mega-Changer because it allows me to have better and rapid access to my CD's collection, classify it and play it the way I wish. Technically, it performs readily all the functions it is supossed to do.
