Hi Can anybody help?Not sure if this is the correct forum.I just need some advice...


I'm thinking on buying a maratnz sr4300 a/v amp and marantz dv4300 dvd.I can get this combo for£399.95. Or can i get anything else good at that price?Dvd has to be multi-region,progresive scan.and have composite and component in,out sockets.

Any suggestions would be great a help as i am goiing round in circles here.

I have a budget of £650-£700 for a/v receiver+dvd+sub/sat 5.1 speakers


Many Thanks


Kyzer

Odd as it may seem, i believe that in the budget arena, the name counts alot towards the quality of the item. Going with a brand is a good thing for this reason and marantz are a good brand to support. You might be interested to know that the (presumably) previous model amp, the 4200, has been spotted for £130. Details are in the special offers forum.

all the best

that rather depends on how picky you are going to be. If you are going to make this purchase and forget about it for half a dozen years, then i would just say to go with it since you wont be tempted to upgrade at the slighest blip. But if you are starting onto the upgrade treadmill, it would be worth doing a few searches, plenty of threads exist with similar wants. I would help, but i dont really know so much about your options.

Hi Kyzer,
I'm not sure if you want this facility, but I don't think the 4300 is Pal progressive. Just a thought as it gets advertised everwhere as being progressive capable, but it's only in NTSC...(to the best of my knowledge, I may be wrong)

Pete.

in that case, yes you are dead right about prog scan! I just didnt know if maybe you had a tube tv, in which case prog scan is useless really
