I found my answer through a careful read of the instructions regarding "G" protection, which is an anti-skip function that when turned on (G-on), and which is how my unit was set from the factory, the sound quality is just ok. You can improve the sound quality greatly by following these steps to disable G protection: With the unit turned off, press and hold down the fast forward button, then press the play button while looking at the display window. As you continue to hold down the fast foward button, press and release the play button and every time you do you will see the display readout cycle from G-off to G-on to G-off..etc. If you leave it on "G-off" you will benefit from the best sound this unit can produce. I'm using Grado SR-60i headphones, and the sound (in a quiet room) is simply astounding.
I had a very specific task for this item when I purchased it. My wife and I collect CDs. We buy some new here from Amazon, but 90% of them we buy second hand from Amazon Marketplace, yard sales and flea markets. We do not currently have a home audio setup. We mostly use our iPods right now. Sometimes on a weekend we may buy as many as 50 CDs and sometimes it takes me awhile to get them all ripped to my laptop. Lots of times I want to try out a CD in questionable condition, or just want to play it and haven't ripped it yet. This is where I will mostly use the D-EJ011. I also just wanted to have another PCDP just for fun and who knows when they are going to quit making these things, most have already disappeared. I had a tough time finding a new one that wasn't total junk for a reasonable price.
Which brings me to the $29.99 price. When compared to my iPod touch... well.. Hey look, we are talking about a $300 product against a $30 product and I don't think that's a fair comparision. Is the touch 10x better for 10x the price? Yes. Probably 100x better, but for me this PCDP had a very specific purpose and it wasn't to be my main portable music player. I've read a lot of reviews on this player before I bought it and I despite all the negative comments, I took a chance on it and I'm glad I did.
BATTERY COMPARTMENT - I've read a lot of comments on the battery compartment. I think that has been blown way out of proportion. I have large, fat, Diabetic fingers. I also have an ounce of common sense. I found it very easy to open the door and insert the batteries.Read more ›
If you purchase this player, please listen to your motor. If it is giving off audible noises (it should be almost dead silent) so that you need to have the player further away from you just so the noise doesn't degrade the music, you are hearing the motor burn out. If you are within the warranty period, I suggest you return it immediately. Don't wait for the end.
On start up, if the unit does any searching at all to find the first track, or gives you a "no disk" message, you are looking at a failing player. It should just kick to the first track and play.
The earphones are pretty useless for me. They are "in ear" and if they don't fit, you'll quickly be looking for a new set. That's a questionable investment given the low manufacturing quality of the player.
The track programming is very limited. It works only in numeric sequence, i. e. track 1, 2, 3, etc. You cannot program say, tracks 3, 1, 2. Also the programming act itself is clumsy and difficult to get right.
The player just feels flimsy and cheap. I don't have any better suggestions, but this thing is not a first choice. Unfortunately cd players seem to be dieing off under the mp3 deluge.
Added 01/10/2013: Somehow I never got around to mentioning that the AM receiver was terrible. Only the very strongest stations are audible. If you need AM, say for sports, this is not your unit. Best wishes.
