    Hi folks

    Am seriously thinking about getting a Pioneer 747 but would like to know what its like at handling layer changes.

    I have a 737 and a 606d and both of these tend to take their time over a layer change. I'd have thought that being a top end deck the 747 should not have these problems.

    Anyone know

    thanks!

    Had a helpful response from a 747 owner.

    Said that the layer change was "up" to Pioneer's usual standards - ie disappointingly slow.

    Shame that they add all the bells and whistles of SACD and DVDA yet fall down on something which effects most discs...

    D'oh!

    I dunno what player to look at now though.........

    The Denon 2800 has loads of problems
    The Denon 2800 MKII Dunno yet
    The Pioneer 747 - Bloody expensive to make multiregion & PAL Prog, plus slow laye change.
    Toshiba 900E.....not sure about yet.

    hmmmmmmmmmmm it's easier to choose a budget player than the higher end!! blimmin 'eck!

    Kirk most multiregion sites have the 747 at under £700 now.

    Also I think leconcepts have the Toshiba at £699.

    So you should have a fairly good chance at comparing all four players at £699 I believe.

    I agree, but the fly in the ointment comes when I chuck PAL Prog Scan in. Techtronics with PAL Prog & Multiregion is over £1000.

    I don't know of any other multiregion source which are also proven to be reliable who can offer this in addition to the Multi-Region chipping?
