No more fumbling through piles of jewel cases! Store up to 300 discs in a Pioneer mega changer, and use its single-CD slot to pop in that new or borrowed disc. To locate a disc in the changer, spin the front-panel jog dial or use the direct access buttons on the remote control.

Share this brainy player with the rest of your household — there are 5 "Custom Mode" files for grouping music by genre, artist, personal favorites... any way you choose. 20-track Best Selection Memory makes it easy to keep your favorite songs programmed and ready for playback. An optical digital output lets you dub to a digital recorder.

Special Features

Audio CD-R and CD-RW Compatible: This unit is compatible with audio CD-Rs and CD-RWs.

Play exchange: Discs can be changed during playback, but the rack can not be rotated during playback. 

Single play mode: There is one slot in the rotary tray for single play. There is also a button for access to the single slot and a separate play button for single mode.

Custom groups: This feature allows you to divide and store the 300 disc library into 5 groups. A disc can be placed into more than one group. 

Best play: This allows you to store up to 20 of your favorite tracks in memory. To put a track into BEST memory, you simply press the "BEST" button on the remote while the track is playing. When the BEST play mode is activated, the tracks in BEST memory are played back from the most recently memorized track to the first memorized track.

CD text:
When used with CDs encoded with CD text information, the player can display the Disc title.  Note that track title, performer or any other information is not displayed.

Random: The random modes are:

  • All: plays all tracks in all discs randomly (you can not use repeat in this mode)
  • Single: plays all the tracks from a single disc at random
  • Custom: plays all tracks at random from one of  the 5 custom files

If every disc has 16 or fewer tracks, random will play each track just one time (random with delete). If any disc contains more than 16 tracks, tracks may be repeated and tracks with track number 17 or higher may not be played.

Random repeat: If you press REPEAT during random mode, the contents of the random mode are repeated in single disc random only.

Hi-lite scan: Will play 10 seconds of music 1 minute into each track of each disc, or 10 seconds of music 1 minute into first track of each disc. This will work in the following play modes: normal, program, best, and all repeat.

Previous scan: Scans the last 20 discs you have played in reverse order.
