Does the player make a difference to picture quality or are they all pretty much the same (I'm not interested an analogue audio outs or any other fancies, purely picture quality and the ability to bitstream audio). I started out with a (actually very quiet) PS3, then I moved to a S350 convincing myself that the picture quality might be better and since I flogged the PS3 on eBay for a couple of hundred the "upgrade" was very cheap. Now I am feeling the urge to "upgrade" again and if there is a player which would offer a noticeably better picture for less than a grand then I would seriously consider it. At the moment I am using a 50" Panny PZ800 plasma, but in the summer will be moving to a 60" or 65" display. Is there much chance of noticing a difference with another player or am I better off trying to control the urge to upgrade (for once) ?
