    I AM CURRENTLY IN SEARCH OF A DVD PLAYER (STANDALONE) WHICH
    SUPPORTS ANALOGUE 5.1 OUTPUT..... :?
    WHICH BRAND SHOULD I OPT FOR.. :?: THE MANUFACTURERS SPECIFY THAT THEIR
    DVD PLAYERS SUPPORT VARIOUS DECODING TECHNOLOGIES LIKE "DOLBY DIGITAL"
    "DTS" AND "DOLBY PROLOGIC 2"(dolby prologic 2 is supported in dvd players by onida)
    SO I AM INTERESTED IN A DVD PLAYER WHICH WOULD OFER MOST OF THESE AND
    GIVE A DECENT OUTPUT WITH 5.1 ANALOGUE SPEAKERS...... :D
    CAN I CONNECT THE CREATIVE 5200 5.1 SPEAKERS TO AN ANALOGUE 5.1
    DVD PLAYER :roll:

    Hey buddy Welcome to the forum.As a standard Internet rule please refrain from typing the whole post in CAPS as it amounts to yelling.
    As for your question I suggest a latest Philips 5100K.You can check out the Reviews and features out here:
    http://www.techtree.com/techtree/jsp/article.jsp?article_id=5403&cat_id=621
    It has almost all the major and standard features you would need in a DVD Player today and comes at a Modest budget of 4.7k.Though am a bit skecptical about its need for Digital Optical output.So perhaps you'll need an external decoder for it.Other than that its a steal.:D

    the best player in market are those of samsung and philips which have divx support.
    i have the samsung one with divx support and the firmware is also upgradable.
    the player is decent but with a tray and has no volume control on the remote and the remote supports your tv volume channel and AV funcn and power whereas the philips one has a slot and has a volume control on the remote.
    both players play scratched cds and dvds well.
    the codes to make the philips player region free are available on the net whereas those by samsung are not available but if so desired the service center would make it a region free.

    right now philips 5106 is the model to go for.

    it has optical output too if you want to bypass on board decoder.

    i am using its precursor 642 and i am quite happy too.
    it plays everything you throw at it. divx,. xvid and like that.

    making it region free is no worry you can do it by pressing few buttons on the remote itself.

    Some of the latest DVD players say they can support 5.1 Channel surround channel. But the fact is (they do give surround effects) they
    are less in quality output.It's just a trick to fool people who do not know much about DVD players. I suggest you go for a Super brands such as
    Sony, LG etc., make sure they have DOLBY DIGITAL/DOLBY DIGITAL
    Pro llogic II and DTS mentioned on the player. These give more effects
    and are rather the mother of all surround effects. They cost you more as
    they have to pay the charges of Dolby, DTS, for their Patent rights.
    :D
