POOR

By 

from Lakewood, CO

Comments about Stanton C.500 CD Player:

This was my first starter dj/cd unit purchased. And after owning it for only 4 months one cd player quit working. I returned it for a refund. If you buy this... DEFINATELY invest in the pro coverage plan for it. All the bad reviews I read about it were true

you get what you pay for.

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Stanton C.500 CD Player:

This is quite possibly the worst CD deck i have ever played on. The back story is that i needed to get CD players quick because my old set died, and i needed to practice up for a gig, so i ran to the store and got these. BIG MISTAKE. First of all, my unit was defective when i got it, the left drive would only read a CD (pressed, not burned even) about 1/3 of the time. The big thing though is that they don't tell you there is no ram buffer. that means NO HOT STARTS. When you hit the Cue button, there is a VERY long delay before the music starts, not because it is misscued, but because there is no buffer. Same with the play/pause button. This makes beat matching VERY CHALLENGING. There is no way to start the song where you want it, and you will end up hitting the bend wheel HARD right after you start to get it close. Bottom line, these are UNUSABLE if you want to beat match. If you're just going to be playing tracks at a party without mixing, it might do fine, if you can get one with working drives.

Great Value

By 

from East Providence, RI

Comments about Stanton C.500 CD Player:

I bought this after buying 2 Numark cd players that would not play cd-r's. This thing play's everything without missing a beat. The display on the Numarks seem to be better. Other than that the Stanton is the way to go.

Jogwheel is horrible

By 

from Corpus Christi, TX

Comments about Stanton C.500 CD Player:

If you aren't serious about serious beatmixing, this dual cd player is a good value. I returned mine because the jogwheel is so sensitive that will EASILY throw off your mixing if you try to drag out a long mix. I also found the Start button not all that reliable after setting a cue point. Sometimes it would start perfectly on cue, other times it started where IT wanted to. I will say that it was very good about reading CD-R's whereas Numarks in this price range weren't. It read every CD I put in. That's a huge plus if you have a large CD-R collection. I wouldn't recommend this for serious dj's.
