- [*]Built-in DD decoder
Built-in DTS decoder
Plays MP3 CDRs, with the option to play in random order
Has smooth (albeit a little soft) anamorphic downconversion
Doesn't have the chroma bug
Has quick layer changes that freeze on the correct frame.
So far the Panasonic RP line has caught my eye, with progressive scanning a bonus for future upgradability. However, the Panasonics don't provide random play of MP3s, and I'm not sure how it handles downconversion, chroma bug, or layer changes. Can anyone fill me in?
Are there any other manufacturers that have this feature list? Sony is obviously out, since their players don't support MP3s and apparently have the chroma bug. Hitachi and Apex play MP3s, but I don't know of any model that has built-in 5.1 decoders.
Any help would be great.
