Ok did it.. got a good deal on the DENON 2200.. Hopefully the refurb from e-cost is worth it! I just have a CRT, but I got it because its a universal player.. (want to play SACD and DVD-A) and in 1 yr I'm buying a nice plasma EDTV when they come down to the 1500-1700$ range.. so it should suffice! (panasonic 42") any tips in what to check once I receive it? OMG,I just thought about this, I'm a little bit worried because I wont be able to check the component output (best is S-video on my Sony Wega!) ps For the money ($285) should I have bought anothe player?
