    Thought I'd try and save some time by asking for some recommendations for a new DVD player. I've been looking into getting a new Proressive scan DVD player to replace my current Sony player. I have not had any luck finding a 5-disc changer that offers progressive scan, multi-format, SACD, & DVD-A capabilities. I was hoping that something in the Pioneer Elite line-up would work, but so far no luck. I'm looking for a high quality unit, not a $79.95 BestBuy special! Hope that doesn't offend anyone.:b

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Frank, some of the new Panasonic players announced for this year have 5-disc progressive changer/DVD-Audio functionality along with the excellent Farojida chip. You're probably better off getting a seperate SACD player or going without, as all of the combo SACD/DVDA machines I am aware of are single tray.

    If you need a solution right now, the JVC FA90 or 95 offer 7 disc changing w/ prog scan and DVD-A. I've got one as a secondary player (primary is HTPC) and they are good machines, but I have a feeling the Panny will be a better DVD player.
