    Search this forum for HD735 or HD945 as there are dozens of threads and aside from cosmetics and the additional of HDMI on both they are the same players as the HD850 and HD950 respectively.

    From what i've read so far though:

    1. Its a good player - excellent for the money. The HD945 won budget player of the year 2005 from HCC.

    2. Everyone assumes so Yes because the previous models could.

    3. You'll struggle to find them in stock anywhere though. If you do find them let the forum know as many people are waiting for them. digi-uk said they'd be in today but there's a waiting list.

    Cheers

    Digi-uk won't have them in until end of the week at the earliest. I just called as that is where I placed my order last night. Which I have now cancelled.

    please post the in stock places.

    I have no idea how good the dvd is but @ around £100 and HDMI can't got far wrong if it is no good.

    SACD and DVD-A, and as I'm finding out now even more than I first thought for not much extra dosh. Maybe the SACD and DVD-A won't be that great, but who knows.

    On some reviews it states it comes with HDMI-HDMI and DVI-HDMI cables

    from what I can find the 850 does indeed only have HDMI-HDMI but the 950 hass both.

    Looking at both the 950 does look worth the extra £30 doesn't it as the DVI adaptor costs £13 + p&p for starters. That's only around £16 more!
