Default suggestions for DVD players with good audio

I have decided to save some dollars to buy a good DVD player for playing 24/96 transfers of my LP collection, the problem is what will actually give good stereo performance on the sound side, most I've heard are not much good so any suggestions.

I don't want to spend more than say $800.00 Oz, second hand is OK, I don't need state of the art video or amazing surround sound options though I will probably run a few videos through it from time to time.

I have heard some of the toshiba units have good potential, any one have expereince with these.

I would recommend the Harman/Kardon DVD-47. For only 399 US dollar you get a player with alot of goodies like HDMI, DVD-audio, SACD and more.

For the reason, I bought one 970.

For USD$149 it's not too bad, and the dvd player play all music cds(even DVD-a, sacd). But I must to say, they're not as good as Marantz.

And it has nice pictures when I watch the movies.

Sorry, I don't have any experiences with Toshibas before.

Pioneer has a solid reputation as great-sounding DVD players.

This pro player is expensive (<$1,000) and the text in German. But I include the link anyway.

I agree with pioneer in the sub 1000$ class. If I remember well Siegfried (linkwitz lab) had a 656 as a source

Unlike the '656, the V8000 will not play SACD or DVD-A.

Do you have the 24/96 files, or only dvd's? If you already have the files on your computer, then a usb-I2S dac would be interesting.
