You mentioned several models, so here is how the redbook performance should be ranked IMO: (1) DP-85 or DP-75v, (3) DP-77, (4) DP-55v, (5) DP-75, (6) DP-65v, (7) DP-65. The top 4 ranked players all use the MDS technology which has been described as a variant of upsampling technolgy. 5 thru 7 uses the older MMB technolgy. Of all of these players , only 2 (that I know of) are still in production: the DP-85 and the DP-77. If you are looking for the best deal I would look at the 75v (that is if you don't care about SACD).
