I written before about my Pioneer DV414 going on the fritz, and now I'm looking to finally replace it. Choice 1: DVD-Audio/SACD player to take advantage of multi channel music. I would be running it through my HK AVR 500 and will be upgrading in about a year to a 630. The 500 currently accepts 5.1 channel inputs but no bass managment. My speakers are Platinum Audio Speakers which can handle some bass. Choice 2: DVD Recorder, that will play my recorded movies in other players (DVD+R I believe) would be nice to record some of my son's favorite shows on DVD and not worry about playing it over and over again. Also I would take advantage of recording from satellite PPV, those shows in Dolby Digital and Letterbox. My question is will a DVD recorder record the Dolby Digital Sound? I would be using S-Video for the time being with my current t.v. Toshiba CX32 model until I upgrade the t.v. and that won't happen until the new basement is finished which is a year from now. But if the Pioneer goes, I would lose my mind. Anyway my dilemna needs your input.
