I've just bought a Panasonic*TX36PD30C Tv and a Sony HT-K250 5.1 system. I'm using an increasingly unreliable Samsung 709 DVD player, and my chipped Xbox for when the 709 doesn't 'like' the disc. So obviously I'm looking for a new DVD player. My friend has the 32-inch version of the TV I have and he's just bought a Denon 2900 for £600 and says it's amazing. But do I really need to spend that much to get excellent quality? I need component out and optical sound out. Is there anything cheaper? And yes, I know that £600 for the Denon is a good price. I know that I've spent £1300 on this TV and that there's not point picking up a £50 DVD player for my 36-inch beauty, but is there anything cheaper than the 2900 that is almost as good?
