    huracain..welcome to a new member.

    I think I can decipher what you're after from your post,although that great slab of unpunctuated text doesnt help.

    Good to see you're pleased with a good buy.....I take it from your question that you want a Toshiba DVD player that will play DVD/DVD-A/SACD etc as well as all the CD based formats.

    If you are,then as far as I can see currently,you're out of luck,as only the SD-9500 will decode DVD-A in addition to the usual formats,and it doesnt do SACD.

    Hope that helps.
