    Trying to choose a new dvd player for my set-up (Iscan to PTAE-100)
    Have narrowed it down to:
    Pioneer 757 or Tosh SD900
    As far as I can read both players are highly regarded, but as the Tosh is an older model, it has a less powerful video DAC.
    The Tosh: 10bit – 54mhz video DAC
    The Pioneer: 12bit – 108mhz video DAC

    What (how much) does this mean in pure video quality?

    Dunno about the Video DAC's- but the Toshiba has better build quality. However modded Toshibas 900 have problems RCE, and I think they've got the Chroma bug as well (read a indepth review a bit ago)

    why pay all that money for the s900 or pioneer go for the phillips 963sa.

    I recently ordered the q50 from hivizone with proc scan and it only cost me 510 with freight.

    I think the 963sa is 600 + add freight

    what else do you want? But some have used the projector with the 963sa and say the results are really good. just make a search on this forum,

    hope this helps

    p.s I dont understand what you mean by DAC? but im sure the 963sa is 108Mhz and the q50 I got is 54 but I dont know if this affects the picture quality. anybody know?
