    Denon 2900 is pretty good on CD seeing as though it is a do-it-all player, even better are the Arcam players, but you are looking nearer 1k...

    Also conisder the Phillips 963 or Harmon Kardon players...

    Probs best to have a demo...

    Hi you two. :)

    From what I've read and been told (and soon to test myself), the Harman Kardon DVD25 and DVD30 (DVD-Audio) are supposed to be extremely close to the new Arcam CD player that costs about £400 (I forgot its reference).
    If you shop around you can get the DVD2550 - same as DVD25 but with bottom half in silver finish - for £250 (rrp £350).
    The rrp for the DVD30 is £450.

    I do not know how much of a difference they would make compared to the Sony via the Denon though.

    P.S: chipster is selling a DVD25 in the classified forum. ;)
