Is there a DVD player that has progressive scan, dvd-a or sacd or both built and can do DD,DTS and MP3?
I was at CC last night and this search is getting pretty frustrating.

Has Toshiba fixed the audio drop out and the chroma bug problems?

i just bought a panasonic rp-91 and love it. does all the things that you were interested in. might be a bit pricy though, i got mine for $470. i think they just came out with a new model, the rp82 that is less expensive. you also might want to check out the denon dvd1600, that was the other one i was looking at.

The new denon DVD-9000. Ahhhhhhhh. I nearly crapped my pants when reading about it. Then I saw the price and almost did it again.
I want to go hear that paired up with the 5803.

is the DVD-C920 what you were referring to Nascarmann? that is a nice box! I think I can get away withh 600 or less on this purchase. The wife is starting to go ape**** though.

The Apex Digital AD-7701 does everything you mentioned, but it currently has a problem that Apex is trying to figure out.
Sony's NS500V does it all except MP3s.

It seems the yaamie has my vote so far... I'm still looking but I've searched out as many shops as possible and they don't carrie this stuff yet. I think I might waite till the Christmas timeframe for a price comparison.
Thanks for all the insight and I appreciate the posts! Keep on posten.

If you go to kenwoodusa.com, you can get a promotional dvd for free that has info on their product line. That's not the good part lol. It also has a faroudja video test that I think is great for trying out progressive scan dvd players. It's a good way to see what players are doing good, plus I think it's a great way to see which players have realistic colors. You'd be surprised how bad some are.
Also, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to order the Yamaha. I can probably get you a decent price on it from the store I work at.

Thank You very much Fireshoes, I'll probably be doing something in mid September so expect a ping. I'm taking the family home at the end of the month so thats the reason for the hold time.

I understand your disire for one player to do it all but what do you want? MP3 is not a quality recording. SACD and DVDA are fine. DTS is outstanding. Progressive scan is needed for optimal viewing on a HDTV set. I agree with another post. Love the Sony DVP-S9000ES.
BTW I did hear good things about the Pioneer.

I want the lesser Q stuff because of friends who are in a band also do recording.
Not only MP3 but all the cd recordings also...
My system does pretty well with music and I would like to help him listen to his mix. Its just a feature thing not a quality thing...Thats all???
