    It looks like ecost isn't getting anymore Denon 2200's. Bummer. Anyway, can you suggest an alternative player that is good for both video and audio. I would like it to be progressive scan and play DVD-A and SACD. This will also be my CD transport so good audio performance is paramount.

    Thanks for your help

    Krish,
    Take a look at the posts for the Pioneer 563.
    It seems to be the only low cost universal that you can buy new in that price rasnge (actually more like $ 150.00).

    Good Luck, Al. Wise

    I think I've decided on the Pioneer 563. The bass management appears to be bad but the receiver I am looking at - HK 525 - has bass management of it's own EVEN for 5.1 audio inputs.

    So thanks - after a week of crazy research I think I may have foundmy system.
