    Is there such a thing?

    I have a Denon AVR-2805 as the amp and KEF Coda 9s as front speakers.

    Basically I'm possibly looking for something to play SACD and DVD-Audio on.

    Cheers !

    A good match for the 2805 would be a 2910 or 3910 depending on budget, however the pioneer and marantz equivalents are also highly regarded.

    Get a demo if you can and try each format with each player.

    If audio is your primary concern and you don't want to spend too much, then the Marantz DV6500 (or 6400 if you can find one--it's what I have) is a great player, with OK PQ (I have another player for that duty). If your budget allows, though, the Denon 3910, Marantz DV7600 or DV9500, and the Denon 5910 are probably the cream of the universals across that price range. The Pioneer 59AVi is also worth considering, and, as it's a bit longer in tooth, probably available at a decent price.

    Cheers for the suggestions, I shall hang off for a while as a £400 player for one disc is something I can't justify at the moment :)

    I too would also recommend the Marantz DV9500, absolutely cracking machine.
