I just bought my system and am looking for a good CD/ DVD player as well. A faster peice of equipment to record and burn CD's besides my comp would be nice too. I was looking for the best I can get inbetween $300 and $500. So where do I go with this? I got the Pioneer 1014 reciever with an Ascend LCR (170 and 340) I want good sound more than DVD.

Not sure you will be able to locate a stand alone DVD burner with greater speed than your computer, however. Good hunting.
SO do you suggest I get a CD player/recorder and a seperate DVD player? Any suggestions. The Nad donest record---I have anopther thread in this forum where I narrowed down some choices but Im still not sure what to get.
