    Yeah, I have a CX860, previously owned a CX850D

    It takes around 30 seconds to change a disc.

    It also has a useful FLIP function so you can flip a disc.

    RemoteCentral.com has loads of setups for the Pronto, so no worried there.

    For labelling discs on the Pronto, personally, I don't recommend it.. well, I get new discs every day practically (up to 250 discs) and it'd be more trouble than it's worth to keep updating the Pronto when the machine itself automatically indexes the discs.

    Good points ?

    Well, it carries 301 discs.. once you've had a changer like this, there's no going back. It's just so convenient.

    It has component outputs

    You can bookmark several favourite scenes. eg. you could bookmark the Pod Racer scene from Star Wars Epi 1 if you use that to demonstrate your system. Saves you scrabbling around through your collection.

    Bad Points ?

    It doesn't have a dolby decoder onboard (like the 850D does, hence the "D").. but if you have a good amp, that's not a problem

    Sometimes it puts the discs back in the wrong slot.. and you "lose" a disc.. very annoying.
