    I was looking to buy a Panasonic DVD-Model dvd-rp82 (auto1) but they seem to be out of production. Can anyone tell me what model they were replaced with or the Panasonic xp30 or 50?

    The panasonic xp50 is the replacement for the rp82, and the xp30 is the same thing without dvd-audio. Bad thing is all 3 are discontinued. The good news is the denon dvd-1600 is the same player as the rp82, but with better audio dac's. The Denon uses burr-brown audio dac's. The denon is more money, but if you buy a refurb you can get a good deal. I bought one from clubmac for $180 and $54 for a 3 yr replacement plan. They are out for the moment but should get more. Also ecost.com sell them refurb. The denon player is simply awesome. Hope this helps,
    Kevin

    If you want the exact replacement for the r82 with dvd-audio you will be looking for the panasonic dvdf85s. the xp50 is actually the same year model as the r82 but a higher end player(which explains why both are discontinued). the replacement model for the r82 is the f85. I work at circuit city and we carry the player for $149.99 and is a current model (we carry silver version so model number for us is pan dvdrpf85s). it's nice because the new model is $100 cheaper than the old r82 model and all the specs are the same.

    Check out panasonic's web site

    The 85 uses Panasonics new all in one deinterlacer/MPEG decoder, whereas the 82 used the Farjouda 2200 deinterlacer and Panasonics top MPEG decoder. According to the secrets guys, the new panasonics using the new chip have the chroma bug, whereas the 82 didn't. This may or may not be important to you.

    The last two post are correct, the f85 IS NOT the exact replacement for the rp82. I sell those units as well. Xp30 if you dont want dvd-audio, xp50 if you do. Denon 1600 if you prefer better audio DAC's.

    Yes the panasonic f85 is the replacement for the r82, and it was my mistake to post that they are the same specs, the new models always seem to get cheaper and crappier than the old models. So if you want better quality go with the XP50. Plus the r82 and f85's 5 disc changer is a big pain in the butt to use. half the time it doesn't want to give up the disc your playing if you want to take it out. You have to hit the stop button like 4 times. sorry i wasn't advertising for Circuit City, I just work there and EldridgeH was wondering what the replacement for it was and I said CC has it, I'm just trying to help. I'm using the resources I have. Go buy it at Best Buy for all I care.

    Yamaha C920 is also a good one much like the RP-82. Burr brown dacs and 5 disc carousel, but a little pricy.
