    I would like to replace my CD changer and DVD player with one component, so a multi-disc DVD player seems to be the logical choice. I've been seeing some mixed reviews on a lot of these so I thought I'd ask around here. I need the following:
    5 or more discs
    Progressive scan
    DVD-R and +R support
    MP3 playback

    I wouldn't mind DVD Audio or other bells and whistles, but the above are all I REALLY need.

    Does anyone have any good suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Drew

    Yamah CX1 would be a worthy option to check out. I've had mine since July, and really like it. Here are some features:

    - 5 disc
    - Faroudja processing
    - Burr-Brown DAC's
    - DVD-R compatibility, no +R
    - DVD-A
    - Very good build quality and weighs 23 lbs.
    - Price is $5 bills or less anymore (original MSRP was approx. $1200

    The Denon 2815 and new Marantz VC5400 might be worth checking out as well.

    Question on the DVD-Audio playback for those 5-dics changers: Can you simply load up 5 DVD-A's and have them all play in succession? Or will some discs just repeat themselves over & over again?
