While my 3 years old DVD32R is away for health check I wonder if anyone has thought of alternatives out there as the wait might be a bit long if Nic is right. I guess the most obvious alternative is the DVD32FL but what are the choices out there without to much of a drop in audio performance? I am not to keen to spend as much for another transport for CD/DVD considering new formats for video are around the horizon. Would anyone like to suggest some other route to check out? Our first Sony DVDP and it is still going strong but it has found a good home in my brother house. So maybe I am thinking along the line of Sony ES?
