Man, Denon makes some killer CD's for radio. Not terribly priced. Pretty durable. I started using the commercial Sony CD's in '85 (with the big "edit controller") at WONE in Akron/Cleveland. The networked Denon's are sweet! For simplicity, wish they'd give a simple wired remote connection (on top of 232 etc) for "start" & "pause".
