Copy Protected - Carefull
on 6 March 2014
I give this 1 star to draw attention to the review - I would definitely give this 5 stars normally for quality of sound and content but be warned that it is produced in Germany and is copy protected which will mean you can play it with no problems on any machine other than you PC with Windows 7 or later. I could not understand at first why it played so well in the car but not on my PC. Did some research and apparently Warner label does not use something called the Redbook system and on anything produced in Europe they put this copy protect code on the disk which makes it hiss and sound distorted like your speakers have blown. There is no way around it, even using another player because it recognises that is has recording capabilities.
As I have (typically) only the PC as a Hi-Fi in my home it is no good to me unless I want to sit in the car or buy a Hi-Fi to listen. If you have that and do not want to listen to it on your PC - Great Purchase and great value. I would have liked to exchange it for another without copy protected (EU) but Amazon will only exchange like for like.
