    Still haven't made up my mind if I should buy a mini-/midi-hifi and add a DVD player or if I should go for a all-in-one solution.
    Don't fancy the latter but I stumbled across the Onkyo DR-2000, nice looking DVD/CD Receiver, i.e. with built in amplification. Don't think it sells in Europe:

    http://www.onkyo-intl.com/ (Select "DR-2000" from the 'Quick Search' on the right)

    Don't like the spring clip terminals but what to expect? Hope I can get it multiregion at least ...


    Any other, similar product you know of or you can recommend?

    I need something rather small and probably will use it as stereo setup, i.e. two speakers only.
    For those who wonder / don't know I have already a fully fledged AV setup but need something small which I can either sell later or easily ship around when I move.

    Ah, hadn't heard of that one yet. Thanks, will check it out as it seems to be a good alternative / option.

    Hi Reiner,

    I'm having the same dilemma... I started off thing DAV S500 then DAVS800, then onto Marantz seperates



    I auditioned a Denon ADV-700, KEF KHT 2005 and Sony KV32FQ75 and was very impressed with DVD replay. Audio CD replay was surprisingly good too. I was worried that 35Wx5 wasnt really powerful enough to drive the KEFs in my lounge but I changed my mind, it got to fairly deafening levels!


    Best price I've found for Denon multi region was at www.HifiBitz.co.uk costs £625
