... and am embarrassed to say that I already had one. Good thing I asked the HTF before I went to store and embarrassed myself further. But, then again, they would not have had a clue. I have been reading all these posts about CD players with excellent Redbook CD playback. What is this new Redbook format?! They slipped a new format into the resolution war and the prices for the players are excellent. What is this new format that doesn't require a player that costs $2K+ for primo playback like the high-end SACD/DVDA players? :b Well, for those newbies and oldies (who won't admit their ignorance), a redbook CD is a standard, run-of-the-mill, regular ol' CD. With all of the new CD formats that are being produced, redbook has been adopted to differentiate a regular CD from the rest. Full research before the plopping down of funds is highly recommended.
