" Bought another Sony CD changer 'cause I want to try that "continuos play fade-out/fade-in" thing where you hook two of these changers (400 disk and 300 disk in my case) together for seamless, uninterrupted play (one player always has a CD cued up and ready to play as soon as the other player's CD cut has finished...so no ~20-30 second delay as you wait for the changer to move to the next (random) CD and cut) and have one the "master" controller and one the "slave". However, the fly in this ointment is that you can only do this (apparently) with the RCA cable in's and out's which would preclude using an external DAC 'cause it needs the digital out (optical cable in my case) from the changers (which is 100% unacceptable and defeats the whole concept of using a high end external DAC with these changers and thus enjoying much better sound than what the dirt cheap DAC's in these changers produce).
I thought of a way around this if I could split the optical input to my DAC into two and thus hook up the optical digital outs from BOTH changers (since only one would be "active" at one time) into the one optical digital input to the DAC. Does such an animal exist, i.e., an optical cable splitter? And even though my DAC has USB and co-ax digital inputs, the Sony changers only have optical digital outs...Thanks, Ed"
