    I wan to buy a dvd-a player, but the bass problems on the RP-91 really detract from the overall experience. are there any players that i should look at?

    Denon 3800, Denon 9000 both have bass management capability.

    I think the Denon 1600 uses a low-pass filter for bass management.

    The Kenwood DV-5700 and DV-5900 have bass management as well.

    If you are satisfied with the overall results with your Panasonic RP-91, why not just get an ICBM and be done with it?

    Hey John,

    What did you find out at CEDIA about the new universal players from Yamaha and Onkyo/Integra? And how about the Pioneer elite 45a and the new 47ai? What level of bass management do they have?

    Brian,

    No on all the above, as I wasn't able to round up technical info from Onkyo or Yamaha, and Perry got to Pioneer's booth but I didn't.

    Regards,

    There has been reports in threads here that the 45a has it. My 1st DVD-A disc should be here in a week or so.

    I dont own the RP-91 [​IMG]
    i borrowed a friends to try it out. How are the Dneon's as DVD players? I might be willing to just go for the ICBM and the RP-82.
    what benefits would an ICBM offer me?

    I can confirm that the Pioneer 45A has bass management for DVD-A and SACD.

    You might want to check out the new Yamaha DVD-S2300. I saw this at CEDIA and it has Sage/Faroudja deinterlacing, DVD-A and SACD playback and digital bass management for a $1000 list price. I didn't see them, but from what I've heard, the Pioneers still have the chroma bug

    ah so many things to consider, but from what i understand the 45a is several hundred dollars cheaper... and well budget is unfortunately very important to me now.

    John, the ICBM allows you to adjust the crossover frequencies for all speakers. Check it out at www.outlawaudio.com . It is available for $250 USD.

    Dan HH,

    Thanks for the info. What does it let you do? Set all speakers to small and redirect bass to sub? Set speaker distance?

    Thanks,
    Brian
