    I'm thinking of getting the following:

    The DENON DVD-700 DVD Player

    http://www.denon.de/bilder/dvd/dvd700kgross.jpg

    Pretty much a new dvd player, sounds great. Uses a new decoding chip so should be better than my dead Loewe Xemix player. Also the decoding is the same as in the new Denon DVD 1600 with the exception of the audio decoding, so i'll leave my amp up to that. (not fussed on the DVD-A or SVCD)

    Well thats what I think, any one have anything to say?

    I've just ordered one.

    Should play CD's better than my E50 from the sounds of it.

    Seamless layer change.

    :clap:

    Does progressive scan make a huge difference for PAL, I thought the only benifit was really for NTSC.
