    1) progressive scan

    2) 5 disc carosel (will also be used as my CD player)

    would like to have in addition

    1) DVD-audio

    2) HDCD

    3) best bass management in the player

    Right now I have seen the Denon 4800 for $1,200 list

    and a Marantz model for about $600 (no DVD-audio on this one)

    is dvd-audio worth the extra money?

    Are there other companies with 5 disc/progresssive scan models?

    thoughts/ideas

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure which models meet all of your criteria but I can say if your a music fan DVD audio is worth it.

    JVC XV-FA series.

    -7 disc changer

    -Progressive scan

    -DD/DTS decoders built-in

    -DVD-V/DVD-A/CD/CDR/MP3

    -$330 at Crutchfield

    As for bass management, I don't know of any DVD player that does that, but wouldn't it be best for the receiver to take care of that anyways?

    Harman/Kardon and Kenwood are also other brands.

    vin,

    most receivers dont do bass management thru their 6 chanel analogue inputs (which is how dvd-a is output)

    Ah, sorry about that. I'm not familiar with DVD-Audio. I just assumed the bass management was for movies. [​IMG]

    Hi Bill, I have the denon 4800, It is a very nice player, I have not used the dvd audio portion yet and I am not familiar with the base managment system.
