Today is November 26, 2012. I bought this unit in 2002 new. It is STILL new and has never needed a repair. It's fantastic and virtually bullet proof. The sound is incredible and the features are too many to list here. I'm a professional musician with perfect pitch. This machine beats anything I've ever listened to in any price range. If this baby ever takes a dump, I'll be buying another Pioneer - possibly an Elite - without any hesitation. This machine has been driving by big screen and my home theater system every day, 6-8 hours a day for the last ten years and has never missed a beat. I bought mine in the $300 to $400US range. Why would anyone pay more? You certainly would be wasting your money to do so. Viva PIONEER!!!!!
