I'm looking for a DVD player with the following feature list:
  • Built-in DD decoder
    Built-in DTS decoder
    Plays CDRs
    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.

Thanks,
Ryan

About the only players that come to mind with the features you need would be the Panasonic RP61 and RP91. As for the MP3 thing, to my knowledge, I don't think I've seen any MP3-capable DVD players that can actually randomly play MP3s. I could be wrong though.
