Just before Chrimbo I was 95 per cent positive I would be doing the right thing opting for a Sony 36FS70 telly, but to make sure I asked the good chaps n chapesses on this board to convince me I'd not be wasting two grand if I bit the bullet and bought one. Thankfully, half a dozen existing owners were easily able to convince me the tv was a Good Thing and so I went for it, and have been very happy owner ever since, so... I am now in the market for a better dvd player than the early Sony 725 jobby I already own. I have virtually decided upon the Arcam, however, I'm gonna find it difficult to pay 900-00 squid for something that only ranks third on HCC's own best of hitlist! "Buy British" and all that, could an existing owner please confirm it is better than sliced bread and that the software hack as featured in the HCCO review works for all firmware versions. I have followed existing DV88 threads closely re-firmware upgrades and reckon I'll go to a shop in London to pick one up - and make sure its got the latest revision. Assuming I do - I'm not gonna be dissapointed by it, am I..? I don't actually own a seperate CD player so the Arcam will have to "double up". If you can convince me I'll convince the other half and I'll go shopping the long weekend, and I'll have loads of time to fiddle! Thanks for any and all help given! Stan.
