    As reviewed by I probably won't get paid on 3/23/2009

    We picked up one of these for a DJ job. Just a simple job, play CDs for a dance competition. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!!!! After four songs, the player stopped the music, returned to the first of the song, and started over. It did this to factory CDs, professionally cut CD's and homemade CD's. It happened on 13 different discs. The sorry excuse from the store was "sometimes these can be very sensitive." Isn't that what the anti-shock is about? I can't recommend Stanton to anybody. You're really taking your chances.

  • Nothing Else But Stanton

    As reviewed by Nashville Sound DJ Express on 6/10/2010

    I tried American DJ just to try I had Nightmares. Stanton is better made all around. Sony insides,Sony is orginal tech on CD players. I have 4 others, I wore out. This C502 seems to be holding up very well. I play in extreme DUST conditions. I can load up a CD with high quality Mp3s over 80 and play for hours never open the drawers and keep it all covered. You can pan thru your list of songs, and go. The seamless loop is a true seamless loop. Works like a charm everytime. If you don't take care of your CDs you will have trouble. Stanton seems to play most any CD burnt by any program. Even the ones that are really scratched by the dust. Others have troubles, they are too picky. Sure you could get a bad one... but never FEAR STANTON should be your GEAR!!! 28 years of DJ experience Play for 500,000 yearly

    As reviewed by rafter on 8/8/2009

    I bought this to upgrade form my cassette player to CD to play music bettween sets on my PA. I do not use any of the scratch or bending functions i just pop in a CD and go get a beer. I have never had problems with it using it in that capacity.
