    Having moved all my best kit into the HT room I'm trying to put together a 2nd system for the living room for as little as I can to get OK performance.

    Amp will be Marantz 5300 or Pioneer VSX-D812 both of which have 6 channel analogue inputs.

    What would be a reasonably priced DVD-A and SACD capable DVD Player to go for? I'm hoping for something I can pick up on a Richer Sunds type deal.

    Any recommendations?

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    I'm looking at the Pioneer 565 - 199 from richers sounds M/R or the 656 for 299 M/R

    At that sort of price level the Pioneer 656 is unbeatable in terms of quality.

    Thankls for info, I was going to pop into RS on the way home today but now won't be able to leave early enough.

    I'll go there tomorrow wit the intention of getting a 656.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Not sure you you'll notice any difference between the 565 and 656 (except the extra effect the 656 will have on your wallet :) ). 565 has just been released. 656 is quite old now. Magazines are saying the 565 has everything the 656 has..don't think the 656 has PS.
