Default Re: Expect Two Winners in the HD Disc Format War


I agree with Jerry, you NEED at least one of the formats. Last time I checked the net I found I could buy both an HD DVD player and Blu-ray player (I beleive I priced out the Samsung BDP-1200, a great BR player, forgot which HD DVD player I used) and came up with $577. All in all pretty cheap. You mght even be able to still get in on the five free BR/HD DVD's with purchase.

I think the newer models are definitely improving, and the drop in price makes buying an older model (don't even think of buying the XA-1!) used unreasonable unless it's a steal.

You can decide what to do for the DVD-A and SACD, if I had to go to one player for everything, I'd keep my Esoteric DV-50s (I would prefer to keep the Meridian G98 but as it doesn't do SACD it can't be put into this discussion) and be happy.
