My Q50 has frozen (mains power but won't respond to any buttons). Have been told it will cost £100 plus to repair so 'uneconomical'. It cost £250 a couple of years ago and had a wicked picture (better than my Panasonic E85 recorder) and I'd like to replace it, but I'm not sure how much things have moved on in the last couple of years. Basically, would a current 'budget' model outperform my Q50 (eg Denon 1710?) or will I have to spend a lot more than that? Advice appreciated.
