igonre the 2nd post, please Rich
I highly recommend the Kenwood DV-6050. An amazing picture with the Faroudja DCDi chip. I tested a number of players in the 1k range and ended up keeping the Kenwood after a friend turned me onto it. DVD-A is a huge plus as well. Great picture and sound but the worst remote I have ever seen. I have seen them for $250 on the net.
I should mention its for the little lady, and a bad remote will get me hit.... ease of use is high on the list... Rich
I'm very impressed with my Pioneer DV-563A. CUE is virtually eliminated (you really have to look hard for it), and it also supports SACD and DVD-A formats . . . pretty remarkable for the price range it's in. The remote, although not back-lit, is very intuitive, and the front panel controls are quite complete. The only niggle is that the brightness of the LED display is only adjustable on the front panel. Very straightforward, guided on-screen setup facility. Available at Best Buy, for well under $200. Mine is connected via AR component cables to a Hitachi 57SWX20B. Although I'm not a videophile, I do find the picture to be outstanding. -- - Jeff
If you have DVI on your TV then the Bravo D1 with DVI out is the only choice.
329 for a Denon DVD-1600 at Crutchfield. If you can stretch your budget a little, you can get an absolutely superb player. Search this forum for related threads, and read the reviews on http://www.hometheaterhifi.com in the DVD shootout section.
