    I've just bought a plasma, a Panasonic 42PA50 which is standard definition and has no hdmi/dvi connections, and I'd like to optimise picture and sound.
    I currently have a five year old Sony S735 DVD player which does not have component output. I also have an Arcam Diva CD72T for CD's. I'd like to replace the two with one player if possible. My prioirities are picture quality through component and CD sound. SACD and DVD-Audio are not requirements. I'd like to budget up to £300-£400 for either a new player or a quality second hand one. From my research so far something like a second hand Arcam DV88 plus might be a good option (is this within budget?) or a Denon 2900. Any suggestions gratefully accepted !

    TagMclaren DVD32R :) But of course its a bit out of your price range, even second hand :( I would probably go for an Arcam, an FMJ if you could stretch yourself :thumbsup:

    Hi Kilian, I recently went to a dealer with exactly the same requirements except I'm feeding a projector. I picked up an ex demo Arcam DV89 but the 88 is probably pretty much the same. DVD via Component looks fantastic and the CD quality has meant the old CD player will be moved to the study or sold. I didn't try a great number of players as I was happy with this - particularly going for the Arcam amp. I'm sure there are better players out there but for the money and my requirements I'm a happy man.
