well, since i can't find a CD/DVD Changer that doesn't take 5 years to load and play discs, i think i might just go with a single-disc DVD player and a 5-disc CD changer. i'd like to be able to get both for around $300. any recommendations? as far as the DVD player goes, i want to make sure it can play all the major formats: DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, Video CD, DVD-Audio, CD, CD-R & CD-RW, MP3 and WMA CD-R & CD-RW, and JPEGs. i was thinking about checking out the Panasonic DVD-S55S. what are some other fairly inexpensive DVD players to look into? what are some key features to look into when buying one of these? what features do i want to make sure i get with this purchase? and as far as the CD changer goes, I want to make sure it has no problems playing CR-R and CD-RW discs. i love my music, so i need it to sound good. i want a fast load/skip disc time and i need it to be able to shuffle and play random tracks from all the discs that are loaded in it. i was looking at the Sony CDP-CE275. anyone had any experience with this? what are some other key features to look for when buying one of these? also - my receiver is a Denon AVR-2802. should i be buying Denon DVD and CD players in order to keep everything in the same family, or does that not matter at all? any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! thanks!
