I'm looking at replacing my now ageing Sony 735 DVD player (fantastic machine what it has been - cost £500 at the time! eek!) and getting a new unit. Since it will be used with a PWD6 plasma, I think progressive scan in both PAL & NTSC should be a fundamental requirement if I am to achieve the best performance from all components, and the Marantz DV-4300 is one player that seems to fit my requirements. I've found it for under £200 (my limit at the moment), multi-region and its CDR/RW/DVDR/RW compatible which is another requriement. I'm not interested in SACD/DVDA nor viewing jpegs or listening to MP3 or any music in gerneral - I just want a top notch player for movies. I've read that Pioneer DV565A is meant to be a bit special, but that only does NTSC Prog. scan does it not? What I was wondering is whether there is anything better for the money that has equal/greater specification? If you had £200 and wanted a player with the above requirements, which would you recommend?
