    Just rang phoned the local Richer Sounds and they are out of stock :(

    Is there anything out there of a similar price (£100) that compares with the 575?

    I am not bithered about HDMI / DVI output at this price point, just the best prog scan picture you can get for the price.

    Oh, and I have gone off Toshiba as that was my current player that has just packed in :(

    In short, NO, not for this price anyway. Ring round RS stores nearby to you, or order it from their on-line shop.
    You have to try and get one of them.

    All the best.

    Hi

    Not sure what spec is of Pio575 but a possible contender is Panasonic S49
    with Pal/NTSC Prog Scan 108mhz/12bit Vid and 192khz/24bit Audio decks.
    Great options for picture settings etc.
    I got one (multi-region) last week for £110 (online) to replace Phillips 3005 which was a great player for money but had some issues with 'flicker' which some say Pio 575 suffers from as well ? Panny image much more solid.

    Just another opinion/option :)

    Hi

    I have never owned/seen a Pio575 so cant say first hand but my brother (Barso) did report finding some minor flickering he ended replacing it with with a Panny S97 (I dont need the Hdmi connection so went for S49).
    In all other respects he thought the Pio was top-notch and I think he still uses it as an Sacd/Music player ?

    I suspect at this price range (£90-£120) most players are comparable.

    Anyway just offering an altnerative :)

    Dont think the S49 has been reviewed in any mags as yet ?

    Cheers

    Buy a 565 form eBay for £40 and spend the other £60 on dvds instead!
