    My Sony 715 is starting to have problems reading discs - it is only 6 years old and has just under 2000 hours on the laser.

    Recommend a player with SACD and DVD-A at a good price please

    The 2910 is doing my Castle's justice :) If this is a consideration for you. It's a class DVD Player. Can be had for around £500...and plays the formats you require.

    Looks good but £500 and appears to have some problems reading imperfect discs

    I have a new player now - just spent an hour wiring it in - Pace Twin RGB loop through works (thank God)

    A local shop was selling cheap Pioneer 575s but had sold out of special offers.

    I had emailed them about this and unbeknown to me my wife had popped into town and bought one (for £110 Worcester HiFi :clap: ) using joint credit card!

    (I was waiting 'till Saturday)

    Anyway it sounds good and the picture on DVD-Rs is better than the 715, yes holiday DVDs are fine again.

    Not sure what to do with the 715 as it was a very good player and it would be sad to scrap it :( (hang on it does RGB loop through and I have a TV upstairs with no DVD player!)

    Also tested DTS yes, DVD-Audio Yes, a downloaded MPEG4 on CD yes, and a borrowed DVD-RW which would not play on the PC yes.

    I expect if I fart on a CD and put it in I will get a raspy noise :rolleyes:

    It helps with DVD-A being able to specify no sub!

    Now time to email Sony why I replaced a Sony player with a Pioneer.

    BTW Pioneer are one of about 5 or 6 companies I trust
