    I'm looking for a new DVD player to my Panasonic Viera 42". I'm not sure what I should buy. Do you think that I will be happy with the Pioneer 470 or is it to cheap for such a big screen, do you think that the Denon DVD-2200 is a better choice? Or do you have any other sugestions? My first criterion is picture quality.

    Is there others out there using the Viera, what player do you use?

    Thanks!

    Well I think my Denon 2200 picture and sound is fantastic, plus there is no layer change.

    Iv got a Pioneer 575 on my plasma and its very good. The 470 is very similar I believe. Put the extra money you save towards a good component cable. The Denons are good machines well built but are more expensive. :hiya:

    I don't know, but there is a review of it on this site that might suggest it might well have.

    It has better pic and sound than my E50.

    I'm ignorant as to whether these plasma screens you mention have HDMi or DVi inputs... but if they do I would suggest you consider the Yamakawa 365, or 375 if you want something that looks a tad more modern. I've owned the Pioneer 575 and thought it produced an excellent progressive image via Belkin component cable... until I compared it with the Yammy 365 via DVi. The image is in a different league!

    I have a 42" Viera, there's no DVI or HDMI input.
