I second with "Sdcampbell" when it comes to the Pioneer Elite DV-37. An excellent "all-around" player in my own humble opinion. It delivers a superb picture, with superb sound quality to match. I have owned mine for eight months, and I must say that it was one of the best audio purchases I have made in the last fifteen years (my purchase of my Nakamichi BX-300 Cassette Deck back in 1987 takes top honors, with the 2000 purchase of my Magnum Dynalab FT-101 FM Tuner being of honorable mention). I have used it as a DVD Player for the first seven months of ownership, so just like "Sdcampbell", I can attest to its picture quality as well. Right now, I am using it as my main CD Player in my audio system because of its excellent sound quality as well. Sounds WAY (!!!!!!!!) better than my JVC XL-M509 CD Changer (which incidently, is probably my weakest link in my audio system right now). And for an average price of about $700.00, it's not a bad buy either. Don't care to buy a new one??? Then you should be able to find a used one in good condition from around the mid $400's or so. Audiogon has one listed here for $550.00. The Pioneer Elite DV-37 should definitely be one of the players for you to consider on your shortlist.
