I am looking for a 5 disc dvd player, initially i was led to believe that the dvd 50 doesn't play cdrs. This is not true. It plays everything (except SACD and DVD-A), has progressive scan, has zoom features, plays mp3 discs, 194/24 dacs, HDCD capability. Is there anything else out there that is better than this for just under $500? There doesn't seem to be. And I am set on having a 5 disc for now, i could always add a different single disc dvd or cd if things change.
