MUSE Model 9. It is outstanding as both a CD and a DVD Player.... keep in mind I am biased because I sell this player... but it does not take away from the fact that this might be the player you are looking for.

I agree w/ Delve Audio since I just purchased the Muse Model 9 Signature after a long and arduous audition process. In the past month I have listened to/watched the Proceed, CAL CL-2500DVD, Theta Carmen, Perpetaul Tech P-1A/P-3A + power supply (pioneer as transport), the bel Canto DAC1 w/ pioneer DVD 525 as a transport, along with other stand alone CD players. The model 9 sig. is playing in another leaugue entirely in terms of its audio & video presentation. On the audio side, I can easily say that the Muse is the best I have had yet (and that list is long). Overall pressentation is detailed but SMOOTH at the same time w/o a hint of digital nastiness up top. What is most impressive though is the overall landscape of the sonic presentation. Top to bottom coherence is the best I have heard and this unit diplays an uncanny sense of recapturing the timbre, pace, and rhythm of the source material. Highly recommended!
