That JUST plays DVD's, with excellent build quality and decent components?.
I think we need a few more details as your post is a bit minimalistic
What budget do you have in mind? What will the picture be displayed, video connections required and what will your audio requirements be?
Heh, my bad. Ok, Just one scart output witch will go to either a 15inch TFT or a 30-summit inch CRT. Dolby+DTS output, opt or coax I don't mind. Budget doesnt really matter as long as it's not X amount of thousands of pounds.
Ok maybe Im being a bit too specific. Which manufactures have good build quality?.
Arcam DV78 for £699 does exactly what it says on the tin.
Most mid ranged players (£350-£700) are reasonably well built it's just a case of finding one that has the conectivity and functionality that suits your needs. A trip to a local dealer is required to test the usual suspects being, Denon, Arcam, Pioneer, Toshiba, Sony etc. You may well find that you might be better off buying second hand as the older players seem to have been much better built. My Sony is built like a tank and gives superb PQ and SQ for a player thats over 3 years old. I haven't felt the need to replace it as it does everything I need and it does it very well. You can pick a mint version of my player up S/H for around £100
What do you all think of Teac DVD players?. Seen a nice one here
Nice slimline look but no remote control
Never seen or heard it so can't comment on pq or sq but it looks to be built sturdily enough.
Hrmmm maybe I can get one of those all in one control jobbies for it?.
Arcam DV88+ £499 at creative audio?
