Default Cheap DVD players with Wolfson DACs?

Anyone know of any in the UK? Seems a logical choice for a cheap vehicle for upgrade potential.

Not sure of your definition of "cheap", but maybe you should look around for an H/K DVD-21 ?

Default wolfon dacs and cheap machines

there in UK the dvp520 by Philips could be an 50/60 pounds option: here in Argentina Philips sells the same model , -identical from the outside except the model number: dvp530-.
I have one and inside I discovered a Wolfson wm8761 24/192 da converter. Its a minuscule smd chip with 14 pins.
Check out, but beware: mine has an annoying tendency to distort in loud passages of cds, maybe because of poor analog output stage .

Default About distortion in the Philips530

It is most likely to be due to some Signal Processing in the Digital Domain. Check out the surround modes and EQ modes, switch them off.
I do not like this model, but the 720SA is a good tool for an upgrade, although it have pitfalls also.

Marquant DVD-333K. Sounds quite good for the money.
