Hi all, I'm getting a bit confused about the conflict between having a scaler and an expensive dvd player. I'd like a nice dvd player with dvd audio and SACD but most of them are very expensive. With a scaler most of the expense on the dvd player is surely wasted as the video processing shouldn't ideally be used, there's no point using a DVI output as it's progressive already hence the scaler is wasted. Using a HDMI output makes more sense I suppose as some can be interlaced and fed to a scaler DVI input but again it seems a bit of a waste of an expensive dvd player. So I guess where I'm getting at is , is it better to spend a lot of money on a dvd player with e.g. HDMI output (eg Arcam DV79 or Pioneer 868) or is it better to spend less on the dvd player and use a scaler? Will the Arcam or Pioneer hooked up to a projector via HDMI / DVI be as good as using a scaler with a cheaper dvd player modded to have an SDI output? Cheers, Andy.
