I am looking for a new dvd player for my plasma screen. It is an Alis display which (according to other threads) is best on an interlaced component feed. Is the picture from a £700 player such as an Arcam DV78 going to give me a noticeably better picture than £100 - £300 players such as the Yamaha DVDS540 or Sony DVPNS930? Is the improvement enough to warrant the investment? The HK25 seems to be a popular choice but it only uses 24MHz video DAC's for interlaced rather than the 54MHz DAC's it uses for PS. Three DVD recorders also have component out (DVD recording would be useful). The Sony RDRGX3/7, the JVC DRM-1 and the Toshiba DR-1. would they be a good midrange compromise with added functionality? Finding the best piece of kit without spending unnecessarily is very difficult. Any ideas?
