Just thought I'd pass along my opinions on these 2 new universal players. I purchased the Pioneer DV-47Ai several weeks ago and was totally thrilled with the sound. I purchased primary for SACD. DVD Audio is nice but not my cup of tea. Unfortunatly, my snobbish thinking could not get over paying $1000 for the build quality that this machine exhibits go I returned it after 11 days and waited until the new Integra came to my local dealer. I purchased the 1st player my dealer had sight unseen. As soon as I hooked it up the sound was, sorry, dead when compared to what I heard thru the 47Ai. After doing some reseach I think the Integra is a warmed over first generation Pioneer 47A. The menu's were just like it. My primary reason as stated was for SACD. The Integra did not have the magic of the 47Ai. CD's, DVD Audio, and SACD all sounded thin and not as dynamic. I kept the Integra 4 days and had enough. Based on everything I'm reading and hearing most of the universal players are based on the Pioneer 47A, not 47Ai. That distinction belongs to Pioneer for now. I'm seriously considering going back to my dealer and saying I made a mistake and getting the 47Ai or 45A; or I'm going to CES this year, maybe I should wait and SEE..
