I've just bought Yamaha's new CDR HD1500 and have upgraded it to a 400gb disk immediately in an attempt to get as much of my vinyl on the HD as possible....400gb gives enough space for 674 hours of uncompressed music. The unit is well built and has editing facilities which are even more comprehensive than MiniDisc. Will update on performance etc as I become more au fait with the various functions but initial impressions are very good and it seems an excellent piece of kit. One hint, if anyone else is considering a purchase, I would urge you to buy a RS232 lead to connect the unit to a computer. The Title editor software can be downloaded from Yamaha's website to your PC and info can be input via the PC keyboard rather than the jog wheel on the unit or the remote. This will avoid you losing the will to live 10 minutes after you start inputting titles.
