I was thinking about picking it up, but I need to know if it can play 160, 192, 384 MP3's.
(I posted a thread last month about CD-MP3 players...with interesting results)

MP3 Playback: This unit can play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. Each disc should have a maximum of 8 trees and 254 files/folders. During MP3 playback, the following functions are available:
File audible search
Direct Folder Selection: using the supplied remote control, you can directly access folders
Direct Folder Selection from Folder Name: scrolling through the names of folders, you can directly access the folder you want
Random Play: all files in all folders are played in random order
Folder Random Play: all files in the current folder are played in random order
Repeat Play: repeats the current file
Folder Repeat Play: repeats the current folder
Scan Play: plays the first 10 seconds of each file in all folders
Folder Scan Play: plays the first 10 seconds of each folder
Resume Play: if the unit is shut off or switched to the tuner mode while an MP3 CD is playing, the next time CD is selected as the source, playback will resume from the point where it left off
ID3 Tag Display: this unit cannot display ID3 Tag information they usually have the bitrates posted, but i couldnt find it on this model. you might want to call them up as they have pretty detailed info usually IMO

...Crutchfield is the first place I look for audio information, too. :cheers:
I may give them a ring...but I got a hunch that they will read off the information they posted on their web site. I was hoping someone had some first-hand info on this player.

I found this review of the player. Actually it's the lower model (Panasonic CQ-DP171U). Most likely the cd-reading hardware is the same.
"I threw several MP3 files with the full gamut of bitrate options and id3 tagging at it, and it reproduced all of them as flawlessly as the amplifier and the sound environment could allow."
Good article, it describes some issues that may remain in the higher end version.
