    I've seen quite a few of these coming up on Audiogon now that the DV-8400 is out. How does this unit rate as far as Universal players go and how is the video performance? Any help is appreciated.

    EDIT: I searched the reviews at ecoustics and they don't help much. Some thought is was a great unit and others thought it was terrible. Does anyone here have one?

    Based on the Pioneer DV-47a, the 8300 does have the chroma bug, and no bass management for DVD-A.

    But if you can live with those 2 things, and if you can get it for a good price, I'm thinking less than the Denon 2900, or less than maybe $800, it might be something to think about.
