Looks good on paper! The big question is going to be how well discs made on this recorder play back on other players. It has been an issue that a lot of these devices only play back their discs on the machine that wrote them. It all goes to show that IMO, before much longer, Computer based burners are going to disappear. Yanaha have already withdrawn all their computer based CD-R/W drives, and other companies are looking like following their example citing "legal situation with regard to IP & Copyright issues". As we all know, Elby also discontinued Clone CD for legal reasons too. They really do desperately want to put the genie back in the bottle. Still, back on topic, this looks like a good machine, and I'd love to see a serious review of it sometime soon.
