    dvd players are not hd, as DVD is a sd source. you can get upscaling dvd players, but that isnt the same as hd

    you need to specify exactly what you need, no player does everything.

    Hi,

    been a bit harsh on a new member guys!

    well its very much down to what you want it to do now and whether you think you'll be upgrading in the next 19 months to 2 yrs when hidef launches.

    Do you want DVD-A and SACD? if this is important to you then you need a universal player. You could do with hdmi too but tbh i think theres a lot to be said for component.

    How much money do you want to spend?

    samsung HD-950 is universal, has hdmi and can be had for about £110

    denon 2910 is too but your looking at about £500, excellent player i have owned

    Arcams are pretty musical too, the DV79 is a nice player and my current source but aorund a grand

    Not harsh at all, asking a few simple questions to find out exactly what he requires before everyone under sun throws what they have bought at him. So he can either make the same mistakes everyone else has or be abit better informed. ;)

    The Samsung is nothing special.

    The Denon is well a Denon.

    The Pioneer has many things going for it

    Arcams are always a sound bet.

    The Oppo would be my wild card as I haven't seen it yet but looks interesting.

    Panasonic 97 is widely underrated particularly on video. A good match for your plasma.

    All will do DVD-Rs and multiregion. You would need to check the DIVX. Samsung does I know can't remember the rest off hand.

    panny s97 is very hard to get hold of now, unless someone knows where to get them at a reasonable price?
