    I have a Pioneer Elite DV 37 in mint condition that I am considering upgrading. I have been very pleased with the video performance and the redbook performance through the digital out.

    I was considering selling my DV37 for about 450.00 and getting the 9000es SACD player from tweeter.

    1. Would this be a step down in video/redbook?
    2. Would the new Pioneer multi-channel be a better performer?

    Goal: Music quality is more important than video slightly.

    BTW, My EAD 8000 processor has 8 channel analog pass through. Value is important and I don't want to drop more than 800.00 in SACD (not too sure about its future + I want to get into vinyl with my $$).

    If you're moderately happay with your current unit, why not get a 47a, or the not out yet 47ai or 45? Then you get SACD *and* DVD-A. (You don't have to choose between them.)
    If you're feeding a digital signal to your pre/pro, I don't think there's going to be much diff between the two.
    For analog (music), the Sony might have a small edge. Pioneer's are usually rated quite highly video-wise though.
