    I am searching for a DVD-Player which can play DVD-Audio, SACD and
    Divx as special formats. Are you aware of players around 200 EUR?

    I do not believe such a player exists. The only SACD/DVD-A player I'm aware
    of in that price range is Pioneer's, which doesn't play divx.

    The best resource I know of for this sort of compatibility info is

    I had the Pioneer and was not happy with the sound. Picked up a Yamaha S-2300.
    It's $1000 but you get what you pay for. If you're going to get into SACD/DVD-A
    you will want a good player.

    Those 3 formats do not go together. KISS (DP-500)is one of the only
    manufacturers making a pseudo-compatible DIvX player, and they make no
    models that play DVD-A or SACD.

  5. A hacked xbox running XBox Media Player would be able to, and would be
    less than 200E (and region free).

    Thanks for playing. Your prize is a "disc not recognized" error from a
    non-hybrid SACD.

  7. I realized that when I later thought about the post, but one of the
    benefits of using the XBox is it would be progressive scan and region free.

    So it seems that there is no player which can handle Divx, SACD and
    DVD-Audio although Amazon wrote that the KISS DP-500 could do it

    Well, which 250$ player would you recommend if it should play
    (- basic formats)
    - MP3
    - jpeg
    - SACD
    - DVD-Audio

    I thought about Pioneer DV 565 (265 EUR)

    I don't see where it says that.
    That would be the one, if it's the European version of the DV-563A (which I
    believe it is). I'm very pleased with mine.
