    I would very much suggest you get yourself onto www.709online.com, this is THE biggest resource on the matter. I have had one of these babys for a 18 months and have found it to be a right little gem, see how ya go !

    Do not buy a 709. I had one and got rid of it , because the sound was so bad. You can get a multi region Marantz of Pioneer for the same money and both the picture and sound will be better. i would go for the Marantz because the machine is quiet, it has two SCARTs and needs no modification to play region 1 including RCE discs. :eek:

    Can you tell me more about the Marantz?

    I have a 709 right now and am on the verge of buying a Pioneer 545.

    But I want 2xSCART and SVCD support, but I would also like decent FF/REW speeds, which the Pioneer doesn't have.

    Is there a 'hack' for the Marantz, or does it have to be mod'd.

    Any info would be appreciated

    Jon

    There is a hack for the Marantz, but a good shop will provide it ready modified. It will also play RCE.
