    I'm thinking about getting The Harman Kardon DVD30 DVD player (to output to my Sony 10HT projector & Denon 3803 receiver)

    The only review I've seen of this is from an Australian T3 mag. It was very complimentary, but I'd prefer to see some more reviews, preferably from a UK HC magazine or two. Even better would be some real owners!

    I'm particularly keen to check that progressive scan works well for both PAL & NTSC, and exhibits no lip-sync problems.

    Has anyone seen any reviews of this, or wish to comment as an owner?

    I was previously contemplating the DVD25, but I thought I may as well go for DVD-A!

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Not sure how much the DVD30 will set you back but if you're not that bothered about the DVD-A then play.com have the DVD25 for £250 with NTSC/PAL PS.

    Very interesting. I didn't know that the DVD25 was available so cheap.

    I haven't seen the DVD30 below £450. Do I really want DVD-A (and jpeg playback) enough to spend an extra £200............

    I will go away and contemplate....


    Cheers,

    Richard

    hi
    i have a dv30 and it gives a great picture with my sharp zx81 projector,very smooth and stable image. dvd audio performace great as well. (no lip sync problems)
    the only thing i am not sure about is if they are auto multi region or if you change regions manually.
