    Well, I read about his but I haven't heard anything about it from a hands on view. Any news comparing it to the Panasonic DVD-RP91?
    I know the Panny was the talk of this HTF for a while, but if the Apex has the added bonus of the SCAD and DVD-A, then why should I buy the Panny RP91? Does the Apex have the zooming feature? Thanks for all the help!!! God bless!

    Grady,
    That Apex unit has been delayed. It was supposed to come out in August. I really doubt for $299 that it will perform as well an RP91. I think it is great that Apex is offering so many features(progressive scan,dvd-a,sacd,hdcd) for such a low price. I wish some of the big name manufacturers would follow suit(actually i hear Pioneer is going to be offering a unit with similar features to the Apex). I have dvd-a right now and i love it but i would also love to give sacd a try. From many articles i have read, alot of artists prefer sacd to dvd-a. I may give the new Apex a try if or when it comes out. I am a little wary of Apex though after my experience with their first budget player, the AD600A. Lets hope the 7701 is a good all in one solution!
    Regards,
    Dalton
