The Denon 2815 is a nice player...........at least I like mine. I would also take a peek at Yamaha and if you want to spend a few more bucks, NAD.

Thanks N/H. I looked at the yamies and I got to tell you. I'm a little miffed. One unit plays everything but SACD, and the other plays everyting but DVDA. I also looked at NAD, but again, limited formats. What a bunch of crap that is??? Dam dummies. What do you think about the Onkyo DVCP802. Looks just like the integra and plays everything. I reckon that seeing how I'm looking at $500 - $800, I might as well go with a universal player.

If I'm not mistaken the DVCP802 is another example of Onkyo rebranding somebody else's player. It's basically a Pioneer chassis and a few other Pioneer parts. If your bound and determined to get a multi disc universal player, I would wait until some of the new stuff hits the streets.

What is wrong with using parts from other manufacturers? This is pretty typical across the board, electronics, appliances, cars. It is what makes stuff more affordable. Look at what you can but that is entirely proprietary $$$.

There is a nothing wrong with using parts. Read my post again. I'm not talking about just parts, some of the players we are discussing here are far more then just parts. It's a re-brand and I think that's BS. If whoever manufacture can't figure out how to make a DVD player or whatever on there own, they should not be in the DVD player business.

Thanks for the advise. You're probably right and I should wait. But I'm too dam impatient!! haha... That Sony mega changer is starting to look better now. It plays everything. I'm not convinced it can do all it says it can well though. For what they're claiming it can do, it seams to be an incredible bargain.

So which Pioneer is Onkyo copying? The closest I could find to it in a changer was the DVC36, but it isn't universal.

While I got your ear, I keep seeing 'Burr-Brown' audio chipsets referred on the higher end CD players. Is this something I should be looking for? Is so, which one, there's several.

But the Sonys don't play DVD-As. Not that those seem particularly popular around here, anyway. I personally have my doubts about many things being released on SACD or DVD-A in the long term; it seems that more focus is being put on downloadable music (and the associated DRM). In the mainstream media and geek media, you just don't hear about SACD or DVD-A.

Or maybe it's just sour grapes 'cause I can't rationalize a new player right now...

Ken i've never seen you sour. Maybe somewhat bitter at times, possibly even salty, but not sour.
Maybe Peter knows about your sweet side.

Mmm, i have this crazy urge for a Boddingtons.

the Yamaha DVDC-940 plays BOTH DVD-A and SACD, although I don't think the web site states this. It's right on my box, and stamped on the unit, I have played em both, Now excuse me while I wait for the 2nd hurricane to slam me in less than 3 weeks!!!!!!!!!!

"all systems sound the same when the electric is out"-----------AGAIN, should be a couple of hours now
