    Hi, I would like some advice from any Arcam owners out there.

    1) Is the DV79 the same as the DV78 but with HDMI.

    2) I can get a new DV78 from my local dealer for £499, is this a good price.

    3) Will I see a good improvement with my Pio 434Hde compared to a 'good' budget DVD player.

    I have had a few, so called 'recommended' players in the past but none have ever blown me away with picture quality. I don't need DVDA or similar but looking for a quality picture. Do the Arcam's warrant the extra money to get better results.
    Any help or advice is welcome.
    Andy.

    Went and got a black one today, think he said he had 1 silver one left. I'll let you know my verdict on the player when I get chance tonight.

    I don't think anyone is having a pop at you, they're just insterested in where you are getting such a good price, so they can join you :)

    Yes exactly, we would like to know where you are getting it from so we can all buy one too.

    Given your an Arcam dealer Crusty, why exactly would you want to buy one from someone else ? Please do explain further.

    Andynumpty - Your doing the right thing by not disclosing the name of the dealer who is giving you a good price on the player unless of course he wants it disclosed on a public forum.

    Oh now it's clear.
    I didn't know it was a crime for an Arcam dealer to have a 'sale'.

    It's not a crime, I was just interested that's all. Sounds like they bought a bit too many in over Christmas that haven't sold now that us retailers are the quiet period. At what point did I say it was a crime? What a state of paranoia for nothing. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    I'm just interested as they may have deals on other Arcam stuff. Sounds like you got a bargain!

    I take it the dealer has asked you to keep their name quiet!
