For those looking for a simple and efficient way to organize their massive DVD collections, the search is over.

Sony’s new MegaChangers, announced in a press release as coming this August, are capable of storage and playback up up to 400 Blu-Ray Discs.

The more economic BDP-CX960, retailing around $800, features full 1080/60p HD playback, 24p True Cinema output and Precision Cinema HD Upscale technology. Additionally, an Ethernet port will allow the players xross media bar, via Gracenote, to display information about discs as you scroll through. You’ll be able to pull up such things as the film’s cast, director, and various other details for most films.

The BDP-CX7000ES, a part of Sony’s Elevated Standard line, takes all the features of the CX960 and adds significantly to them with features like the HD Reality Enhancer and Super Bit Mapping technologies. At retail for around $1900, the CX7000ES also has the benefit of 7.1 analog outputs and a design meant to easily integrate with third part automation control systems.
