    Hi All,
    Just wondering...I've recently gotten into DVD burning withy my computer and I'm having all kinds of media compatibility problems playing the DVD's back on my Toshiba player. The early reviews on this machine sound excellent. I want a good mid-priced all format machine, up to around $500. Any better choices?

    Gary,
    There was a review of it in the latest Sound and Vision and they liked the player(though they felt it was flemsy) and said that it did have the chroma bug(if that matters).

    To be honest the chroma bug is something I'd rather avoid so the Denon 2200 looks better to me as an option.

    Samsung has a universal player coming shortly as well with HDMI as well as a Faroudja deinterlacer. It retails for $349 and should be pretty decent for the

    Didn't measure very well for noise either. Only 6dB better than 16 bit CD for SACD & DVD-A.
