My son has recently made a good job of damaging my JVD GR-DVL767 by forcing a tape from the mechanism. Hence, I either pay up £266 to repair it or claim off the insurance. Anyhow, I've decided to claim but Empire direct have specified the JVC GRD73 as being the current equivalent at a value of £378.88 Given that my original DVL767 cost me £720, and as a discontinued model still retails at £500 in Jessops, this hardly seems a fair comparison. So without making a long story longer, is the GRD73 equivalent to my DVL767 or should I be looking at something else. Any advice appreciated.
