Hi guys,

I have been wanting to get into SACD/DVDA and have been looking around for a player. I already have a Blu Ray player so I was hoping to just pick up something that can be dedicated to audio playback.

Someone on Craigslist is selling that Pioneer player and I was wondering if it would be worth it for $95? If there are any other older units I should look for instead, feedback would be great. Thanks.

Edit: Found the same one for $50

For $50 go for it. But beware that you'll probably will have to use the Analog out section. The I Link is a fire wire connection which is not used to my knowledge in todays receivers & AVR's. From what I remember it does have a bass management feature too.smile.gif

Well it has optical and coaxial audio out, there wouldn't be a problem using either of those right? I know I would need component video out, but that is fine as I would only be playing DVDs.

Though I wonder if I wouldn't just be better off going with blu-ray music? I mainly listen to classic rock and some older alternative rock, is the selection of blu-ray music decent, or would I have better luck finding these genres in SACD/DVDA formats?

If you use the coax or optical outputs the audio will be downmixed to stereo. To take full advantage of the SACD & DVD audio in this player you need to use the multi-channel analog outputs. If your AVR has multi channel analog inputs then no problem. Just get a RCA multi-channel connector to hook up your unit.smile.gif

He sold it but did not remove the listing. I have however found a local Denon DBP1611UD open box for $125. I could replace my Samsung BD-E5900 with a universal, but do you think it would provide me any upgrade in picture quality? I do occasionally watch DVDs and would like them to also look nice. I don't have multi-channel analog input on my receiver, so everything would be transferred via HDMI.
