Sony RDR-VX530



I have gone through two of these units and each did the same thing.When i play a cd it skips the first “split second” of random tracks on random(commercial)cds.Is it broke?Dose anyone know if its a known problem?Is it just the way it works?Both units were brand new right out of the box,and i have tested it with a brand new cd.Any help,suggestions,or knowladge with this very annoying problem would be appreciated.thanks


Firmware update available?


Sony says:“NO”.(no firmware available at all)
