    All DVD-A players have the ability to play cd's as well DTS cd's either using the analog inputs or the digital output.

    I have both the Kenwood 5700 and the JVC 7 disc (can't remember the model) I also tried the Panny but it can't match the Kenwood in my opinion. The JVC is pretty clunky but the sound is very good. I don't think you would be disapointed with the audio from any of these players though.

    I can vouch for a nice sounding RP-91 for DVD-Audio and regular CD's.

    Be aware that recent threads on multi-channel music suggested that better sounding DAC's exist in ($higher level) SCAD players. I think they were suggesting that redbook cd's sounded better as well.

    I think that all DVD-A players will sound quite well. I have the JVC 7-disc changer as well. In my opinion, the sound is really good, but not by much. But, I must admit I bought the player based on progressive scan capability, and the fact that it holds 7 discs instead of my former Onkyo 6 disc changer. The Onkyo had a better feature package with the exception of progressive scan and and the lack of CD-R/RW playback. It didn't hurt that the price is about the same.

    I know I'm in trouble now, but I prefer the sound of SACD, and I will be making that purchase by early next year.

    Just my humble opinion of what sounds better!
