does anyone ever use things like:

random play.

or is it just the play and forward buttons on the remote.

my point is would it bring down the cost,and do we really need them:Not Sure:

I think random should be banned. The amount of time that went into making them in the right order then you can ruin the flow by pressing a button.

I use repeat sometimes.

I'd use Repeat All for run-in purposes, but never Random or Program

Program is the perfect tool for recording compilations.

Random/shuffle (err.. if I'm honest then I never use it)

Repeat - I use this for running equipment in, but also if i get a new album and wanna get into it. Play it in repeat in the background while working.

Intro - useless.

A welldesigned remote stops your cd player becoming a button fest. That said i use repeat, display on/off and volume

Just repeat as others have mentioned. Only other ones which I find handy, is the index search: have some cd's that only have 1 track but many index's - why they couldn't just make the index tracks I don't know

On another point, it's not expensive to add these features at all. With most CD players, they come as part and parcel of the transport control (which 99% of the time is bought in from someone like Sony, at neglegible cost). Manufactures could not use/disable them, but it only means less buttons on the remote (again, hardly a costly thing).

I use the play and forward/backward one track buttons. Hardly ever use the fast forward/ backward function or anything else. The Denon has a pitch control function so i can speed the music up or slow it down. Why?

I'm still waiting for a major record label to announce they've released a CD at the wrong speed so I'll be able to correct it!

There's also Repeat All or Repeat A-B. I have used the Random facility a few times. It can make an album sound different by hearing the tracks in a different order. It's worse with my japcrap tape deck. Everytime I want to record I have to follow the manual! I think the Japanese are the worst culprits for adding useless functions and over-complicating things. But that's their nature - the tourists always have the latest cameras full of gadgets.

Programme: mostly for recording CDRs, but sometimes if I only want particular tracks.

Repeat: occasionally, if I want same piece over & over.

Hardly know the rest of`em are there.

Tried "display off" several times, but I couldn't hear a difference, so leave that alone now.

That about sums it up for me as well, not that there are that many buttons of MF gear anyway.

I just use the play, skip a track and stop button.

As mentioned above the display on off feature makes such a huge difference that the display is always off

Shropshire Borders,
I ues most of the functions on my cdp...

However, those are on/off, open/close, play, stop, ffwd/rwd and skip.

There's only 2 other functions anyway, volume and display on/dim/off. As I've got a pre amp the volume doesn't get used, and display off etc makes no difference apart from not allowing me to see what track number is playing.
