Got a crapload of audio CD's in your collection that you find yourself shuffling through regularly? What better way to manage them than this. The StreetFire RBX1600 from "StreetFire Sound Labs" works together with Sony's MegaStorage CD changers (up to four of them in fact, making the device capable of handling up to a crazy 1600 CDs) for the ultimate in management of your audio CD collection via a PC connected through the network. If it weren't for MP3's I bet this thing would sell like hotcakes, nonetheless i'm sure it will be a lifesaver for some. DesignTechnica get a first look at it today for us.
