I have a Sony S7700 that does not play DVDs anymore. It still reads CDs without a problem. I listen to music more than watch movies.
Would you pay $250 to fix the machine so it can play DVDs given the age of the machine? Or, would you reinvest in a new player? If better to invest in an new player, do you recommend multi format player or a stand alone CD player and a cheaper DVD player?
Do the current multi format players have as good CD playback as the Sony S7700?
Are the any specific models that you would recommend.
