    I just received my Pioneer Elite PD-F27 CD changer today and hooked it up to my system (45TX receiver via Dig Coax). My question is that when I first fired the thing up and played a couple of cd's it was skipping intermittently, and even stopped playing a disc altogether. After warming up a few minutes, though it seems to be playing fine. I have just loaded 2 discs into to test it out. I did get it factory reconditioned from Pioneer via ecost.com. I usually don't do this, but they had a helluva deal on it for $169. Maybe too good to be true? I'm listening to it right now, and it has been playing fine for the past 15 minutes. Did it just need to clear the "cobwebs" so to say? Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Well, since nobody has replied to my original post, here is an update if anyone cares. I tried playing some more CD's on it today, but started having similar problems. I called ecost.com, and I guess as a formality they had me call Pioneer. Let me tell how well that went. The lady I talked to said that they are not an authorized reseller and that they want pretty much nothing to do with me. Called ecost.com back and am send it back for a full refund. I will be out about $15 for shipping though. So, to sum things up, I would recommend you be very careful buying form non-authorized dealers. Ecost.com seems like they are a little shady, but not full-blown scam artists.

    Anyway, does anyone have a good recommendation for a 5-6 disc multi-changer?

    That is a really good deal if it hadn't been for the little problem you had. I paid $375 from SoundPro's and that was the absloulty the cheaps you could find it on the web, and from what I understand, SoundPro's is the only Authorized web seller of Pioneer Elite equipment. I hope you get a woking player this time, cause it is a really good player.

    Well, naturally, ecost doesn't have any more to replace the bad one I have with, so I am returning it lock, stock and barrel. I talked to a local Pioneer authorized repair center, and they said that the random problems I am having are usually the hardest to diagnos and fix (meaning more $$$). I think I talked myself into a 5 or 6 disc changer for the time being.
