    I wouldn't waste money on a progressive scan player - the conversion on the 11Ht is better than most players. I have a Tosh SD510 & the pj's progressive scan conversion is much better.

    But make sure you have a player with component out.

    I use an Arcam DV27 FMJ with my VW11 which at £1,600 is quite expensive but it does offer true NTSC and PAL progressive output - it also utilises an audio delay to compensate for the de-interlacing process. The difference in picture is really significant and I can strongly recommend it.

    I should however point out that it does suffer slightly with the dreaded chroma bug. You might want to consider the Arcam DV88+ which is about £999 and does PAL/NTSC progressive too. I've not scutinised the Arcam's NTSC progressive to the VW11's as they are both excellent. Get a demo at a local dealer first, but I think you will be impressed. If you have Star Trek Insurrection, watch the opening scene at the village in interlaced then progressive.

    People are anticipating a number of PAL progressive players in the next few months though......

    If interested in DVD-Audio try Denon DVD-3800.
    If interested in SACD try Philips DVD-963SA.
    If not interested in either... keep your Pioneer and forget about upgrading :D .

    For PAL definately....as the VW11 only does 3:2 pulldown NTSC.

    Can't say I noticed much difference (if any) between the progressive outputs of NTSC from the Arcam versus the VW11 conversion. I only use the progressive component output of the Arcam as I don't want to be switching cables or settings every time I watch a film - both look fine to me but I'm sure some of the real experts could point out a few subtle differences.
