    Hi,

    Can anyone suggest a cheap (around £50) DVD player with built in 5.1 decoder. Multi region would also be nice but I think I am pushing it a bit for this price.

    I have just picked up a cheap set of 5.1 speakers and neither this or my current DVD player contains the decoder, so this is a must.

    Just got the Daewoo player from www.scan.co.uk for my parents and was rather impressed with it (nearly kept it :) ). It has decoder with 5.1 outputs and all speaker setups.

    Only thing I wasn't sure about was bass management, when setting speakers to small I got the impression that it didn't redirect the extra bass to the sub. Only had a couple of hours to play with it thou before shipping it off.

    PQ was amazing via the RGB scart, really did my Pio LD/DVD deck to shame but that only has S-Video out.

    Setup menus are vast and build seemed solid for a <£50 player!

    It's on the TodayOnly page for £42 at the moment.

    Seems to do exactly what it says on the tin.
