Is there a particular reason you are looking at this DVDP? Depending on the pricing it may be an OK buy. There are others such as Oppo and Panasonic that offer excellent to good features depending on the budget.

Marantz DV4003 costs upto 19k. the only reason I may buy is that it matches with the AMP...I am already using an Samsung DVDP & it works great.

Any idea how much does the Marantz DV4003 costs in grey market?

Thanks

If you are not looking for a particular feature set I suggest to hold onto the Samsung. I am guessing you may get a bit of a lift in the audio performance with the marantz but it wont justify the difference in price.

If the money is really burning a hole in your pocket I suggest to go for a exclusive CDP or a unversal player such as the Oppo

Abhijit, the DV4003 is a very good DVD player and unlike many out there, this one performs really good with music as well. If you don't plan to go for a dedicated CDP in the near future, this one will be a very good player for both music and movies.

Not sure about the local prices but am sure you can find good bargains.

Best regards.

Is your AVR capable of HD audio decoding? Also does it have a HDMI connection? Interesting to see that the player only has 2 channel audio out and coax connection. I think they might have propped up the stereo playback for which most BR players pretty much suck. This seems like a transition player between a true CD and BR players.

Hi,

The Marantz BD 7003 Blu Ray player is costing nearly 60k including shipping and duty in the 20nrth.com site. How come you are getting it for USD 200?

I purchased Marantz SR4003, and I guess it is capable of HD audio decoding.

It also has HDMI connections.

I have purchased many stuff from ebay USA/Canada/UK. & have learn't the art of purchasing stuff at really cheap rates/ getting it shipped to INDIA & managing Custom formalities @ low rates.

I was watching for this player since couple of weeks....luckily I was able to find an auction where international shipping was available & won the auction.

There are other auctions too...& are selling the same player for $399-$599 price range, still cheap compared to price range here in INDIA.


Regards
