    Hi im looking for a dvd player in the 3 to 400 range. I need 5.1 and dts and obviously a good picture. Im also after good cd playback. Something that will sound better than my antique Marantz 52mk2se.
    I was thinking maybe pioneer as I hear they are strong on music reproduction. Im not really interested in dvda as i think by the time there are decent titles available the player will be out of date.
    I also need multiregion capabilities so I suppose Denon is out of bounds.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanx

    Check out the Sony DVPNS900. You'll have to get it modded but you can buy them from Techtronics etc., already done. A DVD player won't be fantastic at CD but this one is pretty good and it does SACD too which is brilliant. As for DVD's, I tested one and it's fantastic. Check out some reviews.

    Although a bit long in the tooth now, the Marantz DVD4100OSE isn`t at all bad for audio reply, and is available for under £350 M/R these days. Or you might want to wait till September for the Pioneer DV656A, which is a stripped down DV747A wit SACD and DVD-A for under £400!

    Hope that helps?
