If it's only $150 I'd probably repair it. Sure you can get a new DVD player for less than $150 but it will be junk - landfill fodder.

Absolutely not!!! Buy an Adcom GDA 600 DAC and use your dvd player as a transport. The Adcom is usually available for $175-225 on ebay or here on The Gon. It is a magic box which sonically beats the pants off any cd player you could get for under a $1000. I can not stress strongly enough how good this unit is. It is insanely good for the money. For a few dollars more you can get the GDA 700 which is basically a GDA 600 with HDCD.
