    hi all, im new so be gentle :suicide:

    as title really, looking to upgrade my player :D only requirements are that the unit is silver and full size (approx 430mm).

    not really fussed about HDMI as i use component and optical :)

    been looking around, and came across a few mice players :)

    pioneer dv-585 (i'm assuming the 585 is the new version of the 575?) nice looker, would go well with my pioneer amp (vsx-c301)

    jamo DVD-593 - gorgeous and great reviews :cool:

    both well under my budget, very tempted by the jamo atm, just looks gorgeous :blush:

    any help or advise really will be appreciated guys :smashin:

    thanks mate, i did find it :)

    not really worth PM'ing him though as he does'nt seem to know the in's and out's like most on here :(

    dunno what to think now, the jamo has a really good review, and it is one of the best looking players ever imo!

    but the pioneer has a solid rep, matches my amp, but it's a bit old hat now and the newer one has no reviews. damn, why can't it be easy :rotfl:

    Go on, try the Jamo, if you don't you'll always wonder what if? :D

    Anyway, once you've bought one, you'll buy the other anyway. Most people seem to have two or more players round here!...PJ

    I forgot to add that most people start with the intention of just buying one new player becasue their existing player looks fine anway... :D
