    I have a Sony 860D and really like it dispite the awful GUI (I have my collection printed out on a list and just have to type the slot number in to get the right disk, a LOT better than messing with the GUI!)

    Anyway, has anyone heard of any companies making new Autochangers? Sony seamed to have stopped and I beleive there was only one other make (Panasonic I think) that ever made one.

    The reason I'm interested is I've just filled my 860D!:)

    Any info would be great,
    thanks
    Glenn.

    I too would like to know this.

    All I can find are the following:

    Sony CX875D - which is only available in the US.
    Pioneer DV-F727 - which also seems to be only available in the US.
    Kenwood DVF-J6050 - available in Europe but not in the UK.

    The last two used to be available from Techtronics but they no longer stock them and cannot find any retailer (online or otherwise) within the UK that sell them.
    Kenwood still list the 6050 in their current brochure but no-one sells it.

    Sony usually release a load of new equipment in the UK around April time so hopefully the 875 will be of them. However, Sony sales staff cannot confirm what new items will be available until their new product catalogues are released (crazy!) so will just have to wait and see.

    Unless anyone else out there as more info?

    Kenwood pulled out of the UK market as regards to A/V products (DVD, CD, Hifi's, Amp, Recievers etc) late last year and that is why we can't buy the Kenwood DVF-J6050 and what high steet shops have is end of line products as far as Kenwood UK. As you say the only way you can is buy one from a store in the rest of Europe, Sad cause some of the Kenwood A/V gear they sold was not bad at all.

    I bet Sony Sales staff will be last to know and Marketing Dept. will know if they are going to sell the 875 :)
