    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a DVD player that will be capable of playing CD's well. I've listened to a couple of low end DVD players and there CD playback is not very good.

    I've a budget of around £1000, any suggestions, other that DV88

    Many Thanks

    Michael

    How about the Toshiba SD900E??

    CD playback is good, not quite as good as the Arcam though.

    Available from www.leconcepts.com for 699 quid which makes it an absolute bargain in my eyes. :)

    Philips 962SA is decent as a CD player in stock form and very good after an Audiocom Superclock + regulator + black gate caps MOD.

    Also, it plays SACD (mch) well and is an excellent dvd player.

    Combined price with audiocom mods c. £1000.

    cheers,
    Halcy

    PS Yes, i have such a unit and I'm a happy camper.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Has anyone had any experience with the Denon or Pioner DVD players in this sort of price range ?

    Also ( I know I should probably post this in the amps section ) But does anyone have any recommendations for an AMP in the same sort of price range, probably able to stretch to £1500 ? I was orignally looking at the AVR200, but I'm also looking at the Denon 3802

    Thanks for any suggestions

    For amps have a look at the Denon A11SR. Its available for 1400 quid from the same place as the Toshiba 900 dvd player.

    Denon dvd players are pretty good for cd playback but they are just about to bring out a couple of new models: the 2800 Mk 2 and the 3800.

    I would second the Denon AV11. It's a brilliant reciever and next on my hitlist once the pennies are saved. I demo'd one in a store and it blew me away, especially with 5.1 SACD. Check it out.
