In reply to:

Stop worrying about whether there are "sound quality differences" in D/A converters. There aren't. Nada. DACs and ADCs from any of the competent manufacturers are indistinguishable




This is probably true for most solid state equipment. However, all bets are off when "fire bottles" are thrown into the mix.

Thank you Allen.

It’s hard to not buy into the hype when it’s touted to the degree that it is. I went ahead and ordered two of the 455’s. I’m certain that there will be pro’s and con’s. And the con’s will irritate the crap out of me from time to time, but to think that I’ll have 800 CD’s loaded and ready to fire is very attractive to me. I too have some rather eclectic tastes for music. From raw Celtic, to blues to head banging metal.

So I'm loading these suckers up with CD's and getting them to work as slave/master.

The instructions tell me I need a mono P2 connector. One did not come in the box and RCA connectors obviousely do not work. What is this cable that I need?

Mike, do you mean a 1/4" mono cable for the trigger between the two units? That's what I use on my two 300 disc units for an interface cable.

It's just a tad bit bigger than RCA, and there are two ports side by side. I doubt the 1/4" will fit. But yes, it is for the controls.

The manual reads: Connect monaural (2P) mini-plug cables in series to the CONTROL A1II jacks on the back of each component.

Oh, and the Canadian versions come with the cables, go figure.

Mike, I don't know if this will be of much help or not....but the above pictured 1/4" mono plug cable is exactly what my two units are interconnected with and they are supposed to be interchanged and interconnected with all Sony (including the CX-455) components that utilize this function.

Mike, after reading through page 8 under the 'Connecting Another Player' in your product manual for the CDP CX-455 the 2p cable is exactly the cable I showed you above. I have the CX-355 and the 455 manual shows it interfacing with the 355 so I believe if you get the 1/4" mono plugged cable and make all connections as stated in the manual you'll be in megachanger daisy-chained heaven!

on my cdp-cx450, connected to the cdp-cx230, I use a smaller mono cable that is no-where near as large as a 1/4" plug (like one used on an electric guitar). I used a much smaller plug that is the size of the headphone jack on an ipod. It was the only one that woudl fit. Maybe I am misunderstanding the above posts, or maybe the specs have changed - but I thought the mini-P2 plug was quite small.

Ya, the 1/4" guitar plug most definately will not fit. They are quite small. A RCA plug will slide into it, but it's just a [cencored] hair to small.

I reckon I'll just swing by radio shack on my way home tonight and see if they have anything that will work.

I've got one unit full of CD's. What a bitch!! And I don't even have them identified yet. I just wrote down the artist and title and slot #. Data entry later........after I'm done loading the second player.......ugggg

The good news is that Allan was write. These things sound wonderful. Every bit as good as my overpriced Integra did.
