Arcam DV88 upgrade to DV88p worth it with plasma?


Active Member

Just as the heading says really. I am wondering if I will really gain anything by getting the DV88p or the FMJ machine? I am using the vanilla DV88 presently through my Pioneer MXE and although it is a great picture I wonder whether I am missing out on some quality?

I am prepared to either pay for the upgrade on the DV88 or just sell and move up to another machine.

I think the audio capabilities of the DV88 are fantastic BTW and I wouldn't like to downgrade this for the sake of improving PQ.

Any pointers folks? What are you mxe people using?



sorry, I should have said I am using the component outs into the plasma.

No-one done the upgrade with a plasma?

Thanks Carl,

I did wonder about just going the whole hog and moving over to a DV27.

How much can you pick one up for? second hand even...
