Mike, that comment was simply to point out(as Alan and others have done)that DACs are now a mature technology and although slight measurable differences still exist, they aren't of audible significance. So, the mystique about the quality of Burr-Brown(now a division of Texas Instruments)DACs, which may have been justified 10 years or so ago no longer has a factual basis; they're just one of several chip makers who supply similarly excellent DACs to receiver manufacturers for as little as $1 each in large quantities. It should be a non-issue.

Thanks John. These mega changers are sounding like the way to go! Shoot, I've been looking to either build or buy a CD cabinet that'll cost me more than the changer! And I've got plenty of boxes for the empty cases. So I'm gunna buy one and call this a win win.

In reply to:

My point was that one of the reasons why I had resisted these devices for so long was the very long lag time between disk changes (10-12 seconds?). However, when you use two of them together, one plays while the other one loads the next selection, so there is no lag (assuming that your sequence - whether random or not - can alternate between the players).


Mike, one MegaChanger is quite an addition to your system, two of them daisy-chained as Tom suggested is well worth the extra cost due to the flexibility added. In the all song/CD shuffle mode the 10-12 seconds between songs that Tom is referring to can get to be quite annoying after a period of time but with two players daisy-chained we have the capability to shuffle through every song on every one of our 400+ Cd's without ever having any lag time whatsoever, and can even adjust the fade-in time if we choose.

No more than what these players cost, I'd certainly consider buying two of them from jump-street.

Richard, you are not a good influence! First it's dirt bikes, then subwoofers, now CD changers....... You're costing me thousands!

OK, I'll buy two........

Well I guess it's a good thing you bought a new truck not too long ago Mike, the wife gave me the go-ahead for a new one this year...woo-hoo!

I believe you'll really enjoy the two Mega Changers daisy-chained, they're neat as beans.

No, I'm getting 17.5 if I keep it under 65. No idea what I'd get at 55 - 60. That's with a custom tuned PCM (powertrain control module) that I had burned for $160. Prior to the tune, it would average 16 mpg.

And that's driving over a mountain range from sea level to 3500' and back down to see level again.

Considering it comes from the factory with 345 hp (380 with the custom tune), all wheel drive and a 4.10 gear ratio, 17.5 is amazing gas mileage for a 5500# crew cab pick up.

Around town / city driving is a different story......it sucks.....more like 11 mpg. It might get better, but I'm not known for driving very mellow. I drive and ride everything like I stole it!

One more question.........

Can these Sony's be daisy chained to CD players other than Sony for uniterupted play? I've got a Kenwood 7 disk changer collecting dust.
