A GOOD PURCHASE

December 1, 2010

I am not a knowledgable person when it comes to electronics - a few years ago i had the Pioneer 12 disk changer installed. This year something went wrong and after searching on the net I found that Sonic could replace the same unit at a lower cost than repairing the original! Unbelievable since I actually installed it myself - the connectors all matched and then I just pushed the buttons. Of course the price was the real hook for me, since I came home with a quote to install something similar which was 20 dollars more than Sonics price for the 12 disk model.

Excellent Choice

July 8, 2009

I am very please with the Pioneer CDX-P1280 Changer. I am most pleased because it hold 12 CDs. I also like the idea that the changer can be removed form the housing and I can take it into the house and refill the 12 CDs at my leisure.
