Hi there, yes the DIN version CDX5 purchased from a reputable dive shop will have been supplied with the first stage suitable for use on 300 BAR cylinders and also for 232 BAR cylinders. (often you can unscrew the insert on the valve and change this from A clamp use to DIN fitting).

You have yourself a nice set of regs - enjoy diving and take care - Andrew
