I am looking to get a new dvd player, as i just aquired an hdtv, however I am somewhat out of the loop. The tv is an older model so no DVI or HDMI required. A Universal player would be nice. I would love to get one of the denon players but they are too much for me right now. I am on a budget of about $300 max. I demoed one of those Pioneer dvd 578a's and it seemed nice for the money. Not the best video performer though. I was going to keep it anyway but is there anything on the horizon that looks promising? I am in no hurry and can wait?
