DVD Player Faceoff: $18 Durabrand vs. $20,000 Meridian

If you remember the dark days when the cheapest DVD player in the world cost $1000, you might get a kick out of this one by Chinese manufacturer Durabrand, selling at the British subsidiary of Wal-Mart for £9 (just under $18.00). How low can they go, indeed. That would qualify as disposable.

We'd like to get two copies of the same DVD and compare the output of this cheapshit unit with the $19,950 Model 800 DVD player from Meridian Audio. You think there would be $19,932 worth of diff?
