Well, Best Buy finally ran out of the DVP-NS500Vs. With only a floor model left I asked what they could do for me. There was no remote so they said 25% off the clearance price of $149.50. Some digging came up with a remote and I ended up getting the player for $111.99. Not bad I think, now my compatability is complete. Only bad thing is now I have to wire back up my old multichannel jury-rig with two Radio Shack A/V switches. And of course I have to dig up wires, I'll cannibalize my other systems which aren't critical and I have 5 good quality wires. My first SACD is Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser. More to come eventually I'm sure. I hope the new Bruce Cockburn comes out on SACD for me.
