    I have Sony 36FS510H (HD ready Hiscan Tube) TV and Onkyo SR701 receiver. I want to find the right dvd player for the setting. I am wondering if I have to buy DVD-A or SAcd dvd players, or just go with the one without the features.

    I got a question: if DVD player is not compatible with DVD-A, then can I still watch a mustic concert DVD? If yes, would the sound quality in DVD-A way better than regular DVD?

    I searched quite a bit in the forum and found that the one with faroudja chip gets better picture quality. How about sound quality? I probably use DVD player for both playing dvd (movie or concert) and music cd (for sound). Which model would you recommend (under $250) for both picture quality and sound quality? I would appreciate your valuable input. Thank you.

    For playing regular DVDs and CDs all DVD players are pretty much the same. If you don't care about higher quality DVD-audio or SACD formats, then your best bet is a Faroudja-based model. You can get a used/unopened model like the Panasonic RP82,XP30,XP50 for $200-$300 on EBAY. The cheapest new models in stores with Faroudja are the Mitsubishi DD-8040 for
