    Hello. I have been looking for a DVD-A player. I found out about this player. It has progressive scan(3:2), HDCD(would be nice to have), a memory stick port(not that important to me), and plays MP3s/CD-Rs. I can get this for around $260. Does anybody have this player and/or has looked at this player? I'm not sure where Samsung players rank among players with Progressive-scan(JVC, Pioneer, Panasonic, and so on).Also, how is this DVD-A wise? I would mostly be getting this for that feature(I already have 2 Pioneer DVF-727s) and for the progressive-scan capability later. I would be hooking this up to a Denon 5800. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.....thanks for any help!
    P.S.How important and/or useful is HDCD? I have a few CDs that have this and have been curious about it......comments on this also would be useful.Thanks[​IMG]

    The Samsung 921 has not been released yet (its about a month away). It uses the Zoran 5 chip like the 721 and the newer Toshibas. It is also supposed to have full digital bass management of DVD-A.
