    I'm looking for a dvd player with good cd playback quality. I have read that both these players are good for this, but is there any benefit in the extra expense for a 2200? I appreciate good dvd playback, but my main priority is cd quality. I want to get a reasonable av amp too, possibly the new denon avr770sd. I know it would be better to get a separate cd player, but space is a problem.Any advice would be appreciated. Also, are there any alternative dvd players which fit the bill?

    I can tell you that my friend has the DVD-1400 and it is superb with CD playback. It even has a direct stereo mode which cancels all video circuitry (enabling the best stereo performance possible). Picture quality is also very good for a £400 DVD player.

    Actually I was browsing eBay earlier and I think there is still a 1400 on there at the minute - and if I remember correctly its brand new and very cheap. (And no, it's not my friends - haha).

    Hi,

    I have just recently purchased a 2200 and can confirm that it is a fantastic machine for picture and sound quality :D .

    Best of all you can get a black or gold one from superfi.co.uk for only £299.95 (I had their last silver one, but it cost me £399, doh!), making it cheaper than the 1400.

    You had better get a move on though as the 2200 has been replaced by the 2910 at around £480-£500 which unless you need hdmi/dvi is probably not worth the extra

    Thanks everyone for your help. I will probably go for the dvd 1400 because of the price and I would like a silver one, so the superfi one is no good (shame!!). If anyone hears of any other silver 2200's going cheap, can you let me know. Thanks
