Pioneer Elite DV-47ai This one's a "no brainer". Its dual i-Link outputs pass both new and exciting multi-channel music formats (DVD-Audio, SACD) in the digital domain to a receiver (like our VSX-49TXi) with a single cable, for unprecedented purity and convenience. As an audio player, the DV-47Ai plays DVD Audio, multi-channel SACD (Super Audio CD), CD, CD-R, and MP3 discs, ensuring compatibility with all key audio formats for years to come. Triple 192kHz/24bit audio DACs, six-channel audio output, and the latest in surround decoding provide a truly stunning audio performance. And as a video player, the DV-47Ai plays DVD-Video and DVD-R/RW, and features 108MHz/12-bit video processing and Pioneer's PureCinema progressive scan for a spectacular visual experience. Bass Management lets you control the amount of bass sent to your speakers, for better multi-channel sound (and added speaker protection). The Elite two-year warranty applies. * Video Performance Features: PureCinema Progressive Scan (2-3 Pulldown) 108MHz/12bit Video DAC for high-quality DVD pictures Twin-Wave Laser Pickup for CD/Video CD/CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-R/RW (DVD Video Format) Playback Super-Fine Focus Filter with 4:4:4 Video Up-sampling 16 Video Parameter Adjustments w/3 User Memories (Progressive Motion, PureCinema (on, off, Auto),YNR, CNR, Mosquito NR, Block NR, Sharpness High, Sharpness Mid, Detail, White level, Black Level, Gamma, Black Setup, Hue, Chroma Level, Chroma Delay) 3 Factory Video Settings (CRT/PDP/Professional) Pioneer Exclusive Viterbi Error Correction with Accurate Digital Servo for Superior Reading Accuracy Trick Play Processor for Smooth Scanning Still/Step Play (Forward/Reverse, Except VCD Reverse) Slow Motion Playback (Except VCD Reverse) Audio Performance Features: i.Link (Advanced Resolution Digital Audio Interface) Audio Output Multi-channel DVD Audio Playback Multi-channel SACD Playback (1 bit) MP3 Playback Capability Bass Management Triple 192KHz/24-bit (3x2 channel) Audio DAC's for Superior Sound Quality Legato Pro Conversion Dolby® Digital and dts® Digital Outputs Dolby® Digital and dts® Decoders Convenience Features: New Advanced GUI (Graphic User Interface) with Set-up Navigator Jog and Joystick Remote with Glow-in-the-Dark Keypad Resume Function (DVD, Video CD) Repeat Mode Program Play Random Play Output Terminals: Video: Component Video (Y, Cr, Cb) Output x 1 (Gold Plated) S-Video (S2 Compatible) x 2 (Gold Plated) Composite Video Output x 2 (Gold Plated) Parallel S-Video/Composite/Component Video Outputs Audio: Dolby® Digital/dts®/LPCM Coaxial Output x 1 Dolby® Digital/dts®/LPCM Optical Output x 1 Analog Output x 1 (Gold Plated) 6 Channel Audio Output x 1 Digital Audio Output (i.Link) Connection (for AV Receivers) Other: Pioneer SR (System Remote IN/OUT) Construction: Triple-Layered Chassis for Chassis Stability Removable Power Cord Warranty: 2 Years parts and labor 3 Year Firmware Upgrades For Compatibility with Future DVD Authoring Technology Dimensions (Inches): Width: 16-3/4 in.

Seeing that i still have a long ways to go to finish my theater, I really can't afford this at the moment. $720 obo, would consider trade for Philips 963SA to cover some of it.
