    I want a Sony DVP-CX875p 301 disk DVD player (multichanger) but it isnt for sale in the UK (it is in the US and possibly other countries). I have a couple of questions:

    What countries use 240v?

    What problems may I encounter if I want to import?

    Are there any dealers who specialise in importing?

    Many thanks for any help.

    the first and most importand in the power supply difference, You will need to buy an adapter that costs around £20-40.

    and second, you will need to get a multi-region one

    and it will be in NTSC, no RGB :(


    and finally, why on earth will you need a 301 disk dvd player:confused:

    The multi changer is an interim solution until someone comes up with a decent hard drive based solution that dosent cost the earth!

    My existing system is thus (you did ask):

    I have 3 AV rooms (lounge, main bedroom and attic (which is still being built)).

    The lounge has a large 60" plasma and a Cyrus system (AV8/DVD8 & Smartpowers which feed a Mission 5.1 system)

    The main bedroom has a 42" plasma, a Denon A10SE (located in a room under the stairs) feeding 4 ceiling speakers (Sonance) and a Boston centre.

    Each of the remaining bedrooms have a 18" LCD monitor (attached to the wall), 2 ceiling speakers (also Sonance) connected to the room under the stairs. The monitor (and wireless keyboard/mouse) feed into a KVM which feeds into a cat5 port in the room (under the monitor) and back to a PC (also under the stairs).

    The kids room/my study/dining room/kitchen/Garden also have ceiling speakers (the kitchen having a 20" LCD built into the wall), the Garden having some water proof boat speakers.

    All the rooms have a wall mounted IR receiver feeding back to a IR distribution system based under the stairs (cat5)

    In fact all the cabling in the house (cat5/RG6/speaker cable (QED Silver)) feeds into a small room (under the stairs) which houses -

    2 x 12 channel Xantech Amps
    12 zone, 8 source Xantech distribution pre amp
    Sky + (upgraded with 120gb disk) (source 1)
    Sky (source 2)
    Panasonic 830 SVHS video player (source 3)
    Sony Playstation 2 (operating as DVD player until I get my Multi-Changer) (source 4)
    Denon A10SE AV amp
    MP3 PC (with 200MB disk) (source 5)
    PC Server (running .NET server)
    Pure DAB tuner (source 6)
    Cisco switch
    4 line telephone exchange
    ADSL and fax lines


    This means that if you are in a room with just speakers you can access any MP3 track/album, a radio station (either via DAB or the internet), and the intercom system (via a telephone handset).

    A room with a lcd/plasma can also access a DVD, Sky, Sky +, security camera (front/back door/kids play room), a graphical front end for the MP3 (play lists, album details), internet/email, PC games/applications and VHS video.

    Everything is controlled using a number of Pronto Pro's.

    Just need to sort out a multichanger so that all of our DVD's can be put out of harm's way. If we need to watch a particular DVD we can use the Cyrus in the lounge, the PC (feeding a projector) in my study, or eventually in a home theatreroom in the attic.
