I'm just starting to build a budget hi-fi system and HC. To save money, I'm trying to see if different components can "double-up", such as DVD players as CD players, 5.1 receivers as stereo amps and so on. While I think I've found a couple of good options for DVD players as good stereo CD players, e.g. Cambridge Audio 540D, I'm not finding any feedback on the CD capability of DVD recorders. Anyone have any advice and/or experience on this? I know the Pioneers have a good reputation, (and I have looked at the DVR433), but what are they like for basic stereo CD playing?
