    Depends if I was going to use a HDMI enabled display device. If so then I would probably go for the DV79. The only exception to this would be if audio performance was high on the list of priorities, in that case then the FMJ model would win hands down.

    The DV27 sounds much better than the DV88, I never heard the DV79, but if it is in the same league, then I would Pick the FMJ any day, image comes second, everyone hears a lot more music than watches movies, at least I do...

    Guys,

    Yesterday, got my DV27A and had my 1st impressions about it: UAU!!!

    What a piece of machine! CD playback's amazing. DVD audiophile. I can't vouch for the Video as I only have a CRT and I didn't find many diferences.

    I said: everyone hears a lot more music than watches movies

    Not that sound is more important to everyone... :p

    Now, I bet even you listen a lot more to music than watch movies... :rolleyes:

    You said that and suggested the other.

    Either way, don't bet on things you're going to loose.

    I watch much more movies than i listen to music. But much much more!

    So Everyone still is quite an assumption.

    And i would say (not betting ;) ) that whoever has a PJ will tell you the same.

    P.S. I hate not being able to post smilies in this PC... It looks like i'm being too serious when i'm not...

    Unless you have a dedicated AV room, and I think you dont, I still bet that you have some music playing, even as background, more than movies, or do you dinner, and read, and entretain guests, watching movies... :eek:

    just compared component output and HDMI on my DV79 hooked up to my Pioneer 435XDE, couldn't tell the difference at 625p, I'd go for the superior audio if I had the choice again

    You HAVE to give up! :devil:

    I dont even put the antenna on the car, cause i never listen to radio and don't want to get it robbbed ;) . Also my radio is a front loader cd player it broke very quickly with copied discs made at home (i have the originals!!!).

    When i do listen to radio is for 30 min in the morning and it's mainly talking (manhãs da antena 3). And not in my car.
    Only time i listen to music is sometimes at bedtime (no longer than 60min).

    I it's a small fashionable player. So in my living room i almost don't listen to music neither i watch concerts. I even sold my CD player cause it had 3/4 months and only a couple of hours of play :nono:


    So, GIVE UP! :D
