Sony DVPCX850 15/07/2000

Got 200 DVD's? If not, don't bother.

Sony DVPCX850 First of all, for this thing to be of any real value you'll need 200 DVD's, and one hell of a memory. I have a 6-disc CD player in my car, and I forget which disc is after number 2 all the time. Now I have no Idea how I would ever figure out 200 DVD's, or worse yet a mix of DVD's and CD's. I could imagine someone sitting with his kids, clicks the button to play "Dumbo" walks off, and "Boogie Nights" comes on. Point in case, it's an over kill.

Aiwa's home theatre systems are very cheap and support this awesome 5.1 input (I have yet to find a Sony home theatre that does). Usually you'll have to purchase an actual Decoder and then a ...
