    According to posts here by John Dawson (assuming I understand them correctly) the DV88+ and the latest version of the DV27 now use the same processor, the Vaddis 5. The DV88+ also offers progressive scan out of the box (while the original DV88 needed a £300 upgrade). At first glance this might suggest that the gap between the DV88+ and the latest version of the DV27 is narrower than it was between the DV88 and the original DV27, despite the price differential remaining the same.

    I think the DV27 has better internal DACS and power supply and proabably a better quality of component which covers the difference in price..

    I'm sure someone knows the correct details..

    I'm not suggesting that the DV27 isn't significantly better, I'm sure it is, I'm merely suggesting that the gap may be narrower.

    and better that the gap has narrowed because the DV88+ got better than because the DV27 got worse...
