    Can anyone help me clear this up? What can you currently buy brand new from these different model descriptions that I see discussed.

    I'm being told that the only possibility is a DV27A but I'm not interested in the "A".

    Can anyone say for sure what is possible?

    As I understand it the DV27A is now the standard player available from new.

    I'd expect dealers will be selling off stock of new DV27+ players, but I wouldn't have thought there are too many left.

    DV27 is not available anymore new.

    Why not buy a 27+ ex dem? You'd save a ton of money and it'd still have a warranty and be in perfect condition.

    I tried to find DV27+ 3 weeks ago, all I could find was DV27's ex-dem.
    Still worth it though, great picture quality.

    I always said that once you reached the £300 CD player (7 years ago), there was nothing more to get out of the compressed format.
    I WAS WRONG ! VERY WRONG.

    It even plays everything, even my DVD-R's from my Panasonic DVD-Recorder.

    Yes. Not in a tech way, but the overall package. Fantastic machine.

    Pic is about the same from what I can tell, but the audio is blatantly better in every way. I'd thoroughly recommend the DV27 to anyone now having used it for a few days.

    Buying one 2nd hand then paying £400 to Arcam gives you a DV27A for a lot less money, say £1100 rather than £1800. New internals will have warranty, not that it's really needed. You'll end up with an identical spec player.

    I was originally looking for 27+ models, but it's not really worth it, and I couldn't afford it. A bit too much.

    As far as I can decipher, there aren't any major differences between models. Apart from the newer LT drive in the 27A and the Valddis 5 for DVD A, nothing else to really distinguish them apart imho.

    The biggest eye opener for me was the CD replay quality
