    Hi

    I need to replace the Drive of a DV88 and I was wondering if it was worth upgrading to a DV88 plus

    I don't actually need Pro Scan so thinking if there is an improvement in DVD - not CD - sound and Interlaced RGB picture quality.

    Thing is, I see both the DV88 and DV88 Plus both retailed at their individual lauch times at £1000 so thinking maybe the benefits was only the Pro Scan.

    Any comments greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks
    Roman

    If you don't plan on making use of the prog scan feature then there is not any significant difference.

    One other thing, if I decided to add Pro Scan do you think I would be better off upgrading my DV88 to a DV88P or a DV88Plus - I've ready comments on the DV88 SI503 vs DV88Plus Vlad 5 comparisons.

    i have a dv88 but wont be adding the progressive board as i have a plasma which deinterlaces (progressively scans) anyhow and am unsure if the dv88 could do any better
    and the prog board costs a fair bit just to try a comparison.

    it could be worth it if you have a crt tv though
