I am mostly interested in sound quality.
I have read everywhere owners raving about the sound quality of the Harman Kardon DVD-48 and of the Oppo 980H. What abou the Pioneer DV-410 which is by far cheaper than those and easier to buy?
Analog connection no but analog material yes, I do listen it often. I still listen CD although more and more often I am going towards mp3 eoncoded at 256kbps (cannot tell much difference from original analog).
All but the HK have a USB port, which I plan to use often.
I have a HK receiver, if that matters.
