Another one that has gotten good reviews is the Sony DVP-NS975. It is also supposed to be a credible SACD player. It did very well in the "secrets Shootout".
Go to www.ecoustics.com to read all available reviews of all audio/video components. Select DVD player review and the A-Z list. Scroll down to any manufacturer that interest you.
You can find all professional reviews that are available on the web, as well as web reviews by individuals. It is a great site for researching audio/video equipment.
Haven't heard the Panasonic or read anything about it but my guess is your going to get better build quality with Denon.Also you have a number of folks out there that will do mods on the Denon if you have the scratch (and no pun intended) get the "itch".I'd be looking at Sony and Denon.Whereas sometimes you a spectacular performer at a rediculous price the $1K and below marklet seems to to be sewn up with Sony and Denon.Have heard that Sony's generally have video edge but if used for hi-rez or even red book Denon should gte the nod.Do some searches including on audioreview.com though it's a suspect forumn to some extent because those submitting reviews tend to have allready bpought whatever there submitting on and want to justtify themselves and telleveryone what genuises they are.CNET might also have something on Panasonic.
