I'd like to make sure I understand the current issues with DVD-A and SACD concerning bass management and time alignment. As far as I know, very few (if any) SACD or DVD-A players offer decent bass management and none offers time alignment. Is this statement correct? The easy way around bass management is the ICBM-1, no big deal. But what about time alignment? I'm looking right now at the Marantz DV-8300 combo for $2k with some BM, but it'd be ok by me to pay $1k each or even a bit higher on separate DVD-A/SACD players if I could get any with BM and TA. Any such beast? Alternatively, are there any pre/pros out there (regardless of price for now) that offer bass management and/or time alignment on the 5.1 analog inputs? Thanks!
