Well last night my Panasonic RP-91 bit the dust, after searching around here last night looks like I am not the only one who has suffered the same fate. So now I need a replacement, but here is the twist. I have a Sony G70 projector and I am going to be building a HTPC within the next couple months so the replacement DVD player will be a temporary one. Since it is going to be a temporary player I got to thinking that I should get a DVD-A and SACD hybrid machine since I won't be able to do either of these functions with a HTPC. Did a little searching and found the Pioneer 45A and it looks like it fits my needs well and it's not to expensive. A little more about my viewing/listening habits; I would say 80% of my time is used watching DVD's, now I understand the 45A has some problems in the video department but since I will soon be getting a HTPC I am sure I can live with its shortcomings for a few months. When I do listen to music it is generally on in the background as I do other stuff around the room so I am not too worried about the absolute best performance, but there are times where I will sit down and critically listen to music so I don't want a crap player either. From the research I have done it looks like the 45A's biggest shortcoming is bass management, if I find this to be a problem I figure I will get a ICBM down the road. So to all you out there, does this seem like a good plan? I generally don't wander into this section of the forum seeing how I was very happy with my RP91 and was planning on getting a HTPC, so I am a little out of touch as to what are the good players right now. I should probably mention my budget, I really don't want to spend more than $400, I'd rather put the money toward my HTPC. So yay or nay on the 45A as my replacement? If nay any other suggestions that fit my budget, I have no problem buying used equipment either so please keep that in mind. Thanks all!
