the new yamaha universal players are incredibly good.

while the oppo that everyone raves about is great for video, at your price range i don't think you can touch denon or arcam universal players for audio. if you don't need blu-ray, you can get great deals on a used denon 5910/3910 or arcam dv-135/137. the integra units are pretty great for the prices as well.
What is this new analog DVD format?
Not sure if you're joking, Paul. Do you mean DVD-A(udio)? It's been around a while...kind of came and went. Another high-rez format (192/24 or 96/24) Titles are fewer and further between than SACD.
Loomis - Have you compared the Oppo (either 983H or BDP93) to the others you are recommending over it? Just curious.
Yes - just a little funny - here we are discussing DVD players in the analog forum, after all.
(NOT that I am with the forum police!)
I wasn't sure where to post, I am glad you don't have a badge. My listen' pleasure is two channel and for the most part when listening to dvd I use the analog outputs.
HT will be a bi-product... I am looking for the best analog sound from a dvd player... Thanks for the suggestions to this point.
Not so unusual. Often problems don't arise until months or years after a
product has been in service.
The Denon 3910 has been around for years, and the laser assembly problem
has surfaced over the last couple of years based on user comments in several
audio/video forums (specific quotes and URL addresses cited in previous
threads). Its sound is still deserving of the accolades, but the laser assembly can
develop problems, so caveat emptor.
Surely, we all hope to read on this site good experiences as well as bad,
whenever they might arise.
