I had a similar situation earlier this year when I was considering replacing my Rega Planet CD. I eventually decided to buy a Pioneer DV-37 as a combo DVD and CD player, and I've been VERY pleased. It's an excellent DVD player, and I have found its audio quality is better than the Rega I had. The DV-37 can purchased for around $650 discounted, and I can give you the name of a dealer if you need it (send me an E-mail). Regarding the other half of your question about combo DVD/CD/DVD-A or SACD machines: there are combo machines now available that will play either DVD/CD/DVD-A or DVD/CD/SACD, but none that I know of that will play everything including both DVD-A and SACD. One of the recent issues of Stereophile mag had a player on the front cover that plays DVD/CD/CD-R/SACD, and has a MSRP of $2000. I expect it will be another 6-12 months before there is a unit with a retail price around $1000. If you intend to make an immediate purchase, and wait for prices on SACD or DVD-A machines to drop, then I will strongly recommend the Pioneer DV-37.
