My Sony 330 won't cut it anymore. It has a lip sync problem, and it doesn't play CDRs, two things I want to be able to do. I'm looking to get something locally and I want it to be fairly inexpensive (sub $300). I don't need a changer but would like the following in order of precedence Digital Coax and Optical outputs No Lip Sync problem Ability to play CDR/CDRW Ability to play VCD and SVCD Ability to play MinIDVD In addition, it would be nice if it has friendly menus and a decent remote (although I'm going to get a TSU2000 very soon anyway). Apex and Afreey have some inexpensive units that supposedly play everythin but I don't know much about quality. Pioneer also has an inexpensive unit with component out and progressive scan that's supposed to play everything. All opinions needed!
