    If you are not bothered about DVI/HDMI output the Pioneer 575 is a great player. Available from richer sounds for under a ton...PJ :thumbsup:

    I think you picked the wrong time for advice as I'm guessing a lot of people are away with it being Bank Holiday weekend.

    Having said that, I agree with pjtx100, the Pio 575 is an excellent machine and the price he mentions at Richer Sounds is for a multi region model so even better!

    Cheers Bud I am looking on the richer sounds site now, have you had any experience with the TRADE COUNTER at richer sounds as they have some hi spec models for very low prices , is this a no go area.


    Cheers Darko

    I have a sammi850 hdmi connected to hitachi 42pd7200.

    This was worse than my tosh330e (component).

    I should think tosh 350e would be much better-tosh have an excellent reputation with dvd players.

    You can find it on price runner. I did not buy one as i have sammi 850 but i may try it.

    HDMI may be better than component, or it could be worse. Depends on many factors including the particular display / player combination.

    It is true that players with both HDMI and component will tend to give better PQ through the HDMI, but it's also true that a different player may provide more pleasing results through component in comparison.

    ...PJ :)

    I love my Sony LS785, which I think you can get for ~£85 from pixmania.
