I just bought a floor model toshiba sd-9200 dvd player for a good price. I was happy to discover it doesn't have the growling sound problem that many have expressed. My problem however has to do with the direct audio mode (this feature turns off the video circuits for better sound). My player came with the wrong remote because they didn't have the right one. My remote does everything except the direct audio feature. The manual said the direct audio feature enhances dvd-a. I dont care that much about that. I want to know if it effects cd sound quality and how much it effects it (I would have to pay $50 for a new remote) and I don't want to spend 50 mor dollars. But if it effects cd sound alot I will have to do it. Your input is much appritiated. The sooner I get over this toy anxiety the better!
