    In my opinion it certainly is if your plasma is a version 3 or 4 as the PS engine inside the Panasonic is somewhat basic. It is a closer call with the 5 series but still worth it IMO.

    The easiest way to u/g an original DV88 is to add the Arcam Silicon Image PS scan board - a dealer fit (though the factory can do it too if your dealer is a bit unsure). Our helpdesk can offer more advice - 01223 203203 in office hours.

    HTH.

    Probably worth getting PS but worth a £350 upgrade, in my opinion no way. I had it done and didn't see much improvement and that was on a Series 3. If you ask me £350 for that upgrade is silly money. That's more than half the cost of a new Denon 2900 or a Pioneer 757ai and they both have DVD audio and SACD! Think about it, trust me if you get it done you won't feel it's £350 well spent.
    Flame on....
