This 300-disc changer features an 8x-oversampling digital-filter circuit that combines excellent phase linearity with superb suppression of aliasing noise to yield better stereo imaging. The four Hybrid Pulse digital-to-analog converters (DACs) are designed to place the DAC and digital filter on a single integrated circuit. A digital servo-control system maintains stable tracking, laser focus, and disc rotation--all with high precision and low radiated noise. An optical digital output offers a pure digital connection with an MD or DAT recorder, as well as enabling DTS-encoded surround-sound music CDs to be played through an outboard decoder. The Disc Check feature spins each disc into view so you can see what you've got loaded, while the second CD input enables you to connect a MegaStorage CD changer and route the signal from both to a single receiver/amplifier input. Custom File features such as Custom File Memory (305 discs) uses the unique ID number pressed into each CD title's subcode area, and can remember and display a name for each CD, along with specific instructions depending on how you prefer to play it. The Disc Memo display feature helps you remember which discs you have loaded. It also lets you assign an alphanumeric name for up to 600 discs. The Delete Bank is perfect for use when a CD you like includes songs you hate; use Delete Bank to skip selected songs. Delete Bank can be switched off for playback of complete discs.

It's really been an amazing ride with this unit.
Roberto A. Ullfig
I just press play and go about my business these days, and the player chugs along feeding me good tunes... that's how it should be.

I love the grouping and 'hit list' features that allow you to arrange your discs in easily accessible and discernable categories.

I needed a CD changer, and was deliberating between a 5 disc changer and one of the newer 300 disc changers. In the end I decided to go with the Sony CX-300 as it's a great bargain, and since it was a Sony like my receiver (STR DB-930) I could use my receiver's remote to view the disc titles. (just like the remote that comes with the more expensive CX-350)
The unit isn't as tall as I expected, maybe twice the height of a normal CD player, though it is very deep (~18"). It feels sturdy and solid, and looks like it ought to last a while. Loading CD's and entering their titles (as others have said, CD-Text does not seem widely adopted at all, so don't count on this to save you time) was painless, provided you hook up your PC keyboard to do so. I loaded about 60 CD's in 20 minutes without any problems.
The controls on the player are nice, it uses two main knobs to control what disc and track is playing. You also use these knobs to enter in titles for CD's if not using a keyboard, which works relatively well if you're just adding one CD at a time.
You can assign each CD to a group, and name that group. For example, I have a group containing all my Sting and Police albums. You can then have the player shuffle all the discs in that group seperately, or just play through them all. Like all the other jukeboxes I've seen, the CX-300 allows CD's to belong to only one group, which is somewhat annoying. However, it's easy to move discs to different groups, so if you want to arrange a group of CD's for a dinner party or whatnot, you can do so in a couple minutes.
The remote is plain but functional, it appears that it will control 3 of these units daisy chained together.

I just got one of these from Amazon. It arrived on-time and undamaged. Thanks Amazon! So far it is amazing, though I have my work cut out for me typing in all the titles to 300 CDs, good thing I can use a keyboard. One misleading thing about the above description is that this unit does not come with a remote which has an LCD display. I am a little disappointed about this since I was looking forward to that feature. Amazon - please correct the description. Other than that I love it. Great price too!

This is an excellent addition to my stereo system. Despite being a large unit, this 300 CD changer has saved me SO much space--I have said goodbye to jewel boxes forever. I love the grouping and 'hit list' features that allow you to arrange your discs in easily accessible and discernable categories. My one complaint--don't be fooled by the "CD Text" feature which claims to automatically enter data from 'equipped' discs. In fact, only about 5 of my 275+ CDs are so equipped. Be prepared to type those titles in yourself. But that's a small complaint. As the other reviewer said, this unit does NOT come with the remote with LCD display. It is the Sony CDP-CX-350 that does, for $ more.

I have had the same CD player (Denon, single disc)since 1988. It was a great player, but doesn't even play in the random mode. It has been repaired once or twice and is in need again. It was time for new equipment. After researching online and in person, I stayed within my budget and purchased the Sony CDP CX300. I love this machine! I have about 260 CD's of many types of music. All CDs are now loaded and labeled in the player, arranged in groups and ready to program or play in random/shuffle mode. I love doing that! All those years of music, randomly playing a tune from here and there. As one reviewer above said, you hear tunes you forgot you had. I can't say enough. Is it a perfect player with every option I want? No...but I don't think that one is available yet...and if it was, It would be at a steep price. I paid $289 for mine and feel I got quite a piece of equipment for the price. It will certainly change the way you listen to your collection. I highly recommend this player. I also suggest going to the Sony website to find out more about the specs. There is a link to Sony on this page. Have fun and happy tunage!
