    Radio Shack has a Go Video brand DVD player for $69.00 after rebate. It has coax/optical out, S-video and component and is made by Sonicblue, the same company that makes the ReplayTV PVR unit. Seems like a decent unit, buy it check it out and return it if not satisfied.

    Matt, how cheap is cheap? A couple interlaced players to consider for around $200 are the Sony DVP-NS500V and Panasonic DVD-RA60. The 'NS500V plays SACDs, while the 'RA60 is compatible with DVD-Audio. See www.crutchfield.com for more information on both models.

    Matt, the Sony 'NS500V is a single-disc player that plays stereo and multi-channel SACDs. It sells for around $200. In addition, the 'NC650V is a carousel changer version of the 'NS500V and sells for around $300. Both have some bass management features. Specifically, these players allow you choose from a list of speaker configurations. However, they do not allow you adjust the crossover frequency.
    Very few DVD-Audio players have any sort of bass management. Many people are using the Outlaw Audio ICBM for complete bass management of multi-channel SACD or DVD-Audio. It sells for $250. Go to www.outlawaudio.com for more information.
