Sony 200-Disc Standalone VGX-XL1 CD/DVD Changer for MCE


Sony VGX-XL1Sony has a Media Center PC available called the VGX-XL1 Digital Living System - quite a mouthful for what is essentially a run-of-the-mill Media Center PC.  Sure, it has some additional bells and whistles, one of which is a 200-disc CD/DVD changer.  At first glance, a 200-disc changer is nothing terribly new, but this one has the ability to sequentially rip 200 CD’s without having to be “babysat” during the process.  Of course, when you’re not ripping CD’s you can use it to store your DVD’s for immediate access via your Media Center PC.

Right now the only way to get the changer is to buy the whole XL1 package which goes for a tidy $2,299.99 MSRP.  In the rumor department though, there’s this one guy who talked to his friend’s mother who knows this janitor who cleans the Marketing Dept. at Sony who overheard…okay, it’s not quite that bad.  However, rumor has it that Sony will be offering the changer as a standalone model when their new XL2 PC launches (no ETA on that yet).  The changer connects via Firewire, so as long as your MCE has that (and what self-respecting MCE doesn’t?), you’ll be good to go.
