Junk: disassembled to retrieve hundreds of trapped CD discs

 

My rationale for buying the Kenwood Sovereign 400 CD jukebox (DV-5900M multi-disc DVD player) was to store my treasured DVD collection in a library accessible at the touch of a few buttons. Since I bought it in the early 2000's I have hardly ever used...

DVD collection of 400+ DVD's accessible via menu at touch of a few buttons.

DVD's are trapped in unit if malfunction occurs. Heat in unit "bakes" DVD's.

Necessary

 

Ok, I saw this in a store once. THis thing is really high quality and has the convience of a 4 dvd change. If you've got money to spend, and won't go into serios debt buying this. Go for it. But for normal incomes forget. My DVD play costs 84 bucks...

Awesome piece for electronics

Pricey

Product Specifications

Kenwood's unique three-disk Rental Zone, patented Faroudja video processing, progressive scan video output, and DVD-Audio capability with internal Bass Management give this world's first "400 + 3" DVD mega-changer an enormous performance advantage. The Rental Zone, complete with separate Play and Eject controls for each disk, allows easy insertion and removal of up to three disks without disturbing the permanently housed collection. An array of patented video processing circuits developed by world-famous Faroudja removes jagged "staircase" effects that can degrade picture quality while enhancing subtle details and colors for near film-like quality. Playback capability includes DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and MP-3 encoded CD-Rs and - RWs. Built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, PC Link NetNamer automatic disk titling, RS-232 interface, dual side play, and daisy-chain capability (up to 3 can be linked), and an infrared keyboard merely hint at this player's potential.
