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?
