    I am thinking of buying one of these in addition to saving cd images to
    my hdd. If nothing else, it is a convenient way of storing the discs!

    There are two versions a 300-disc capacity (CX355) and a 400-disc
    (CX455). I think the 400 disc player will play mp3 and the 300 will
    not. Are there any other differences? The general Sony brochure does
    not show the 400 disc and only shows a picture, no description, of the
    300. The hifi brochure shows both, briefly, but does not say a lot.

    I read a review somewhere that you can set them to play random tracks
    except tracks a, b, c, etc. on the 300 disc one but the 400 does not
    have the "except..." feature. It seems strange the higher spec machine
    has less features! Is it missing anything else? Are there any online
    reviews anywhere else?

    What features does the 400 have in addition to those on the 300? What
    is the remote control like? Which should I get?

    The list you type in of titles, is this stored in a power cut, or do
    you have to type tham all in again? Are there any players which
    connect to thye internet to downlaod this information?

    From what I can find out sony don't seem to offer the 400 disc in the UK but do list it on their website (odd?!?)
    The Chances are they dropped it in favour of the harlh500 which holds 1250 cds on a hdd for £400
