I've been using this to transfer LPs to CD and also made mixed music CDs. When it works, it's great. However, I've had numerous problems with the labeling device, trying to copy a CD I've made, and numerous "errors" with completed CDs. The sound is very good, and recording from an analog source will actually improve the quality of the sound, but I've had to throw out dozens of discs due to TOC errors or editing errors, and so on, using several different brands of blank music CDs.

      Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

      The unit is very picky about what cd brands it will use. Some have said that the unit functions best with Maxell CDR-Music cds..i would take it one step further and say that the better one to use would be Maxell CDR-Pro Music cds are foolproof if you can find them. They are scarce or non-existent in 2014 though. If you use the standard Maxell CDR music cds..chances are you will encounter c13 toc error messages when you go to finalize the disc at least half the time. The most foolproof method (least likely to have errors with)is the CDR-Pro Music cds..There may be others, but i couldn't find them. The manual is not very specific on what will work and what will not. I would not recommend getting this unit to anyone. I need something else.

          This is the best CD recorder; had this for several years; due to age, getting multiple C13 errors; wish I knew where to get it repaired. For that person with the turntable situation, you need to connect turntable to mixer and through the equalizer then use RCA to connect amplifier out put to CD recorder. This is recorder is the BEST; I would buy another one without hesitation.

          Purchased this CD changer to replace a 20 year old Yamaha CD player. It plays CDs without problems. Haven't tried the MP3 function yet, but that is less important to me. Hopefully it will last as long as the Yamaha.

          Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

          Haven't burned a "coaster" yet. Recordings are a little bright. I have burned many compilation cd's from twenty year old cassettes and are a little "bright". Just be sure to use audio cd's. A ood stand alone non-pc unit.

          Consumer Quality

          from Rural Virginia

          Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

          Had mine 5 years. Recordings come out brighter than input which causes many redo's while guessing at the EQ settings. Drops out of rec mode after a minute or so while you adjust the input mix. LH trays stopped working leaving 3 CDs stranded inside. Otherwise a decent product, but I'm moving on to something else.

          Great Machine

          from Pittsburgh, PA

          Comments about Sony RCD-W500C CD Recorder:

          I have read some bad reviews on this machine, but I tell you what.. for me this machine has been simply fantastic. It is a hell of a lot cheaper than other machines out there, and if you know how to use it, you will love it. The sound quality is excellent. For best sound use the optical input. It has been beaten up pretty badly since I bought it, and it still functions like new! Do NOT record over 70 minutes at 1 time, thats the only drawback. If you do, sometimes you will recieve an error message. Just record 70 min, then pop in another cd, then put together on computer.
