I beleive I have narrowed it down to these two dvd players. I was concidering the Kenwood Soverigne single drawer dvd player. Have been hearing to many negative remarks from sales people that deal with Soveriegn product. This was my first choice because of the Faroudja's chip in this model. But I also decided against this player becasue I now want a unit that does SACD as well. Due to budget constrainst I have come to the conclusion that I need a DVD, DVD-A and SACD player. Playing mp3 files is a plus but not necisary. I have currently narrowed my choices down to the Sony ES DVP-S9000 ES or the Pioneer Elite 47a DVD Player. Would apreciate input from anyone who has these players or who has even looked at these two peices themselves. I will be taking my favorite cd's and dvd movies and sacd's. To to extensive listening to both peices as soon as my tax return arrives. Thanks, Dave Whittier, CA Home Theater equipment paage coming soon !
