It's incredibly rare to find someone with a Blu-ray collection that doesn't have some DVDs lying around too.  It's also rare to find an audio junkie that doesn't at least have a few SACDs.  The latest player from Marantz are built to satisfy those needs.

Both the UD5005 and UD7005 (steps up from the 5004 and 7004 respectively) are fully compatible with, as Marantz puts it, "virtually any silver disc."  You can play CDs, DVD Audio, SACD, DivX files, AVHCD, DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

Both offer dedicated audio sections, but only the UD7005 has a 32-bit Audio DAC with 7.1 output capability.  The 7005 is the only one that offers RS232 compatibility as well, though both sport IR flasher ins and outs.  You can pick up the 5005 when it launches next month for $499.  The 7005 comes in at $899 and with a September launch window.
