    I need to return my S75 back to Comet this weekend and so I am looking for another DVD player. It seems to make sense to try and upgrade the S75 as I wish to find a multi region player which does PAL progressive scan.

    People seem to write good things about the DVD30 ( my local dealer has a exdem for £300) but will it give a noticeably better picture and sound. If not what player would for around £400?

    I tried a DVD22, same as the DVD31 but without DVD-A, I thought that it gave a good picture, but no better than a £100 - £200 player (which is what these HK's sell for in Europe and the USA). :(

    These all seem to get a good write up and all do PAL PS.

    (approx prices)

    Cambridge Azur 540D from RS £249,
    Sony DVP-NS730 £130 & DVP-NS930 £240

    I know that it is just above your limit but it's a bargain:

    Arcam DVD88+ was £1000, now £499 from Creative Audio in Shrewsbury.
