    Buy the Toshiba 900 for that money. It is better in all departments. I would seriously think about the ARCAM though even though it isn't currently DVD A.

    Hey, you won't have any thing to play on it re DVD A anyway. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    Both better than the Pioneer IMHO.

    Do you think i would be wasting my money,or should i go for SACD?<br />Do you think that dvda will ever take off.<br />ive looked at the tosh 900 looks a better choice<br />then the pioneer.

    Personally I can't see DVDA or SACD doing anything in the immediate future.

    I originally ordered a DVD A player almost 2 years ago before they were officially released. I still don't have one and I don't miss it. I haven't heard a decent DVD A disc yet.

    Why not get a player that can be upgraded at a later date like the ARCAM? In fact the ARCAM has now PS and DVD A upgrade options announced or delivered. I expect more will come along as well.

    If you are after good music player, a good CD player still sees all these players off.

    What are your priorities. Music or films?

    I've got a 939-A and love it..I recently replaced my Sony DVP S7700 and was sad to see it go..but after a couple of months with the Pioneer I know I made the right choice..DVD-A is still early but I'm enjoying what there is..and the 939 has some nice features..the best being the option to tweak the picture at the DVD end before the signal leaves the player..It makes a big difference for me as I use a projector..and it has six memory slots for various picture settings..There may be better..but then I got mine for £900 brand new from SRS in London (multi-region UK model)..RCE no probs..<br />Hope this helps...
