Verdict
Denon CDR-1000 £399 Dec 00 Accomplished all rounder, but faces stiff competition in an increasingly competitive market.
Denon CDR-W1500 £450 May 01 Relatively easy to use and crammed full of functions and facilities. Playback for a twin deck machine is better than the norm. Recommended.
Harman Kardon CDR-30 £589 Jan 02 A truely versatile machine with little in the way of competition. Great for a recording session but lets the side down a little when it comes to playback.
LG ADR-620 £350 Aug 00 A good attempt at hi-fi from a major player in electronics. Not the best sounding machine available though.
LG ADR-620 £350 May 02 Updated review of the LG ADR-620. A fine, no-nonsense CD copier which offers useful high speed operation, decent sonics and a practical array of features
Marantz DR-17 £1500 Jul 00 If you want a CD Recorder that will also double as a high quality front-end player, look no further!
Marantz DR700 £600 Oct 99 A very solid all-rounder with impressive playback sound quality. Dearer than many though.
Marantz DR6000 £500 Jan 01 Great all rounder with no serious flaws. Makes great recordings and plays back well. Fine value for money.
NAD C660 £349 Mar 02 Probably the best sounding double-deck CD recorder around right now. Factor in great flexibility and useful real-world facilities, and its a bargain.
Philips CDR-765 £360 Oct 99 Big value package. Whether the 'free' CD player function will earn its keep is a moot point.
Philips CDR 775 £330 Aug 00 Philips lead the way yet again with a good value option that can't be bettered at the price.
Philips CDR 802 £300 Apr 02 Brimming with facilities, this deck offers great sound per pound, but isn't really the audiophile's choice.
Philips CD-R 880 £500 Oct 99 Spot on with digital sources and impressive with analogue; playback a touch cold sounding.
Philips CD-R 951 £380 Sep 00 Still not the easiest machine to use, but does its job very well. Good recording and playback quality.
Pioneer PDR-555RW £500 Oct 99 Worthy of consideration but a bit of a mixed bag all round. Plenty of drive.
Pioneer PDR-W739 £300 Jul 00 Good recording and capable playback. Slightly flimsey build but overall good value.
Teac RW-800 £350 Aug 00 Offers excellent build and looks with equally impressive recording capability. Playback could be a little better.
Traxdata Traxaudio 900 £500 Oct 99 Not the cheapest on the market but has an obliging way with playback which may turn the scale.
