    I’ve been looking to upgrade my Pioneer CLD-503, preferably with an AC-3 ready machine. While I know of the universal affinity for Pioneer units, I’ve got a good line on a Yamaha CDV-W901.
    What are your opinions on this player?

    That's a rebadged Pioneer Elite CLD-59, and as such, a definite step up from the 503. If you can get it cheap, jump all over it. It will have digital effects on CLV and AC-3 and coax digital outs. The picture will probably not be significantly better, but you should see a modest improvement.

    Is there a site where you can find out the rebadged models. I am never quite sure who is who

    Why?
    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.

    A very very busy superhero! Who does...things!
    Now get out of here before I tell your mother.

    Audio Advisor still has new DVL 919's. And suprise of all surprises Theta is still making its LD/DVD unit. I was told that there is still a demand for them and Theta will make them as long as they can sell them. I haven't had time to follow up to see if Theta had plans for upgrades.
