I decided the Yamaha CDC-697BL would fit our needs, after much research on this CD Changer including others of this type and price point. It's easy to use and the remote included gets the job done. It's mainly used when we have guests and don't want to play vinyl-just set it and let it go. It plays CD-Rs since I record a lot of music. The face of the unit is clean with basic play functions located on the face but most of most of the program features can be found on the remote. The unit is rather deep compared to the old unit I was replacing. Check the dimensions before ordering if space is critical as I did. Luckily I was able to fit it in my stereo rack without too much trouble. I have owned other Yamaha components in the past and trust this unit should give me years of trouble free service. I would recommend this changer to anyone who is looking to upgrade or is looking for the convenience of a multi-play component such as this.
