I have this model since 1991 and it's amazing how reliable it worked over all the years. I never had troubles with it, even burnt CDs or disks with more than light scratches have always been read without problems.

It used to be a basic model and the expectations of the sound shouldn't be too high. It's ok for its price class and it doesn't have any extremes in low, mid or high ranges. But compared to later models like the upper-middleclass SL-PS7700D from the late 1990ies it has a rather typical sterile digital feel to it, the instruments apear rather flat and separated and the resolution of high frequencies could be better. But it's not bad at all.

It works with a solid Philips CDM-4/19 drive and the mechanics are very reliable. Now after 25 years there's a problem with the opening electronics - so maybe this is the weak spot on these old workhorses.
