Sometimes, changing a disk is just too much, spoilt as we are with remote controls, wireless computers, mobile phoned, etc. With this increase in laziness; sorry, convenience; is there a several hundred disk multichanger that can handle sacd and blu ray? P.s. has to be European model!

I have wanted one for a long time - at least the SACD server - and am in Europe.

I think we need hobbyist skills to adapt multi disk CD mechanism by replacing CD deck part with SACD/multidisk player with integral DSD/192k/24 decoding to analogue outputs.

Those machines are now a thing of the past. Just rip the signal to a hard disk music/video server and play form there. Cheaper, faster, more reliable.

But don't forget to back up your files, hard disks are not as reliable as you would think.

Before a listening session, drink a double expresso and then see how much energy you can conjure up to "laboriously" change those discs!

Heed my words or risk morphing into a "Chunky" Monkey!

I COULD ONLY WISH AND PRAY THAT WAS TRUE!

Snake Oil is indeed the Nektar of Audiophiles everywhere!

And don't forget to Demagnetize or your precious disks won't sound their very, very best!

And you wouldn't want that to happen, T~B............??????????

And cable lifts and Shakti Stones, etc, etc, Etc.

And A Spoonful of Sugar to help the medicine go down..........in a most delightful way!

The file size of the feature on a Blu-ray can be anywhere from 25 GB to 45+ GB (the largest I've seen is 46). So you're going to be spending a lot of money on hard drives if you start ripping Blu-ray discs.

At the local PC shop a 2 TB external drive was 110, which would hold at least 40 HD movies at BR quality. That comes to 2.75/movie. With internal drives even less, maybe around 1.50/movie, backed up to second drive: 3/movie. Is that much?

Academical, as nobody is going to make 200 disk multidisk players anymore. Media servers are the only choice left.
