    I know someone here was looking for a player like this:

    Carousel DVD Players
    A perfect complement to the movie enthusiast's lifestyle, Toshiba's carousel DVD
    models are ideal for those who enjoy viewing multiple movies or increasingly
    popular DVD collection sets. Likewise, these units can also be used to enjoy
    hours of favorite music selections without having to shuffle and change discs.
    Toshiba is introducing two new 5-disc carousel DVD/CD players this year at CES.
    The SD-5915 (February 2004, $99.99) features Digital Cinema Progressive Scan
    output, ColorStream Pro component video outputs, multi-disc compatibility, a
    JPEG viewer, 3-D Virtual Surround Sound, a coaxial digital output and a
    universal remote control. In addition to the SD-5915 features, the SD-6915 (May
    2004, $199.99) is Toshiba's first carousel model to offer both DVD-Audio and
    SACD playback, Dolby Digital Decoding, 5.1 channel output with bass management,
    an optical and coaxial digital output in a slim (69mm) chassis design.

    If they're as cheaply built as the last three Toshiba players I've
    bought, they can keep them. I remember when Toshiba was a great
    company and made incredibly reliable products (I'm still using my old
    2006 DVD player from 1997 and even a Toshiba CD player from 1988!).

    But, of the last three players I've bought from them, two have failed
    after less than a year and one was screwy right out of the box. They
    sell them cheaper, but they're building them a lot cheaper (and
    sloppier) too.

    Personally, I'd be willing to pay more if they would just build them
    the way they used to. The last decent model Toshiba that I bought was
    the 2109 in 1999 (and I would still be using it exclusively if it
    could play DVD-R's and read jpg's).
