I have a friend who has owned a DVD player (cheapo £60) for 6 months and hadn't played a DVD in it 'til I sold him my old R2 FOTR-EE, and showed him how to set his amp (£900 Nakamichi) up properly for DD & DTS. Now, with his eyes & ears opened, he is off like a rampaging bull on the upgrade route. I'm doing my best to control him and help him make wise decisions but in a rush of excitement he let the Richer Sounds bod sell him a Pioneer 939 for £500. I think he would be better with a 565 or 656 (prob 565 as it's both cheaper and slightly better spec'd) to get DVD-A & SACD and use the £300 to build up a film collection. Anyone else agree or have any other options ??
