Gents. I have been offered a new 939 for 285.00 inclusive of warranty etc. My main player is (and has been for some time now) a Toshiba 900e and will in due course be changed for A.N.Other but given my display devices - a 40" RPTV and a sit-up-and-beg LCD PJ (which is oh-so rarely used) picture is absolute secondary to sound to me. Anyway to the point in hand, i was never a fan of Pioneer players or at least their earlier generations, prefering much cheaper Tosh's for PQ every time more or less. The 939a will serve puely as a secondary dvd player and my interest is DVD-A having used SACD for some time now. Is this player worth 285.00 of mine or anyone elses money? given it's second (or possibly third) player status. It was reviewed by various circa mid 2001 with an RRP of some 1200.00. Regards Steven.
