    A lot of multi-region players available,but not
    much to go on as to how they actually handle
    region1 discs.Noticed some models can have a
    problem, so out of the models that are currently
    being discussed in depth which one would you say is
    the best. :lease:

    What is your budget?

    Do you require HDMI, DVI, etc?

    The Pioneer575 is a start point but also like
    the look of the Denon1910 and Marantz4500.

    I've just sold a 575A - it was a cracking player for the money. Esp through component!

    However if you're looking for a DVI/HDMI player, then samsung, denon (1910 as you mentioned), the panasonic S97 are well thought of on this site.

    Do some searches on the machines that catch your eye, then demo the ones that you feel from others' feedback at your dealer.

    To be honest, none of the machines you've mentioned will let you down - its more of a case of getting one which performs the best for your needs (hdmi etc......).

    Good luck, MAW, hornygragon, etc will be able to help with specifics.

    If you need HDMI the Pioneer 868 is also extremely good. I have been using it with many R1, R2, R3 and R4 discs with no problems at all.

    Yes, I like the Denon 2910 as well but a little
    bit out of my budget at moment,I think I will
    have to start saving. :thumbsup:
