Great Sound that Won't Break the Bank!

By David R. Brown

from El Paso, TX

Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

It's nice to see such nice reviews for this Sony. It is a fine machine which unfortunately has received some bad press (primarily from impatient folks, I believe). My experience has been very positive: I have owned my RCD-W500C, and used it heavily, for two-and-a-half years, and I have encountered no trouble with it whatsoever. The key to a worry-free recording session is to use a high-quality "Music" CD-R, preferably Maxell or TDK; other brands (including Sony) may tend to hang up. If you take time to know and understand how to best use this product, then you will be able to burn from ANY source without loss of fidelity. As a matter of fact, it might IMPROVE a so-so recording. Live recording with the RCD-W500C, along with a mic, preamp, and perhaps a mixer, will yield amazing results! I've done it myself for voice, piano, guitar, and/or back-up track. Two very nice features are (1) the price, and (2) the convenient 5-disc (+1) playback. It will play any audio CD format. As far as your recordings go, use the manual as a guide, but don't be afraid to experiment; you'll "learn by doing" with this component. I does have its quirks, but that seems to be true of nearly all CD recorders, including the professional models. So don't be afraid to purchase and use this one . . . just ENJOY! This Sony is a gem.

Works Great

By Ron

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

We use this unit in our church auditorium to play back CDs and record the service live. Although we've only used it one week now, we are very pleased with the quality. It isn't the most intuitive product design, but with the instructions and some trial and error, we finally understand how it works.

The recorder is working out very well; however, the instruction manual is not user friendly with step by step how-to's.

Sony CD Recorder works great

By Sue B

from Chesapeake Beach, MD

Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

I have owned this recorder for about a year and a half and have had no problems using it at all. I do have to refer to the manual from time to time, but it is not that difficult to use once you get the hang of it and the recording quality had been satisfactory regardless of what media I am recording from. I am using this to transfer my old vinyl records to cds and it has worked great. I have also recorded from cassettes which also worked well. I have not used synchronized recordings from cd to cd but I have made "practice cds" which are songs from several different cds which I use to practice guitar with and so far all of them have been fine. Playback is also easy on this player and so far everything has worked in all of my cd players. I agree it could be easier to use but I have nothing to compare it to and I have managed to get plenty of use from it! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced recorder.
