WTB : Sony XL1B Changer
#11
jkmonroe Wrote:$300 + for the XL1B?!

I picked up mine for $99 with free shipping. Keep looking around for the sony changer ... im sure you can find one cheap.

Can you give me some hints on where to pick one up at that price? Also, would the XL1B be able to work with Theatertek? How did you find its integration into CQC?

I was looking and Sony blew them all out from their website for that price.... no longer available it looks like other than eBay and they are now going for $300+. I would have liked to get one and insert a Blueray drive but noone has tried it yet. If I could get one for $100 I would try a Bluray drive in one. Now here is a link where the person claims they are junk...:confused: http://blog.digitaltundra.com/index.php?...9&blogId=1

My HT equipment I want to control by CQC (some day hopefully)
Yamaha CX-A5100, Dune HD pro 4k, Dune HD Pro 4k plus, ISY 994i, LG 86" 4k FP, and a projector in the future

I had one of these and it was truly junk. It never worked as designed. Sony blew them out and all is over. Anyone who is considering one of these should go elsewhere. Truly, The Sony 777 is the way to go.
Thanks,
Dave Bruner

yeah, seems a bunch of people got em at the $99 clearance and they can't be found at that any more. But I did find one for $140 + $30 shipping. still debating the purchase though. If blu-ray drive swaps are an option then it may be worth the bet

im not so sure id call them junk ... mine is paired with VMC and works flawlessly. I select a DVD, the DVD loads and starts playing. Pretty easy. Wink

Mine has been great, I'd get another one if the price was right as the first is nearly full.

Did you happen to find multiple changer that they are willing to sell, or just one. Let me know, as I am interested in picking one of these up.

Unfortunately, no. I did go ahead and order that one. it was at techforless.com but apparently they weren't lying when the page said "1 in stock". Its no longer on their site that I can find. I was tempted to go buy another (for possible blu-ray hacking purposes) but looks like I'm out of luck. Oh well, at least I got one.

<edit> Looks like PCConnection still may have them. May be worth a shot at $178.24 with free shipping through 1/31.
