    Hi,
    I have just bought the Marantz 4300.
    Cost £300 but does come wih a good spec list:
    Multi-region via remote hack, DVD-R VCD super VCD, as well as Mp3 encoded CDRs.
    RGB scart, S-Video +NTSC Progresive scan through component output.
    I have not found any reviews of this player yet as it only hit he shops over here after Xmas,I bought it blind having owned and liked other Marantz products.
    The picture quality over all is very good at its price point although I have had a couple of problems with a few of my region 1 discs played in progresive scan (picture droputs)
    This though could be due to an incompatabiity problem with my Progresive capable Toshiba TV.

    Cannot comment on the Philips player as I have not seen it or read reviews on it.

    greetings bazkav
    the DV 6200 ia also a marantz dvd player, can you let me know what you think of your DV 4300 as i like you have purchased it on the spec's alone as i have not been able to find them in the shops here

    from what i can gather the DV 4300 has better video & the DV 6200 is better for music

    from the pictures that i have seen of the Dv 4300 there seems to be a small socket on the rear that i have never seen before, can you confirm if that is so & if so let me know what it is

    regards

    Hi rocket in aus

    First let me tell you what's on the back of DV4300

    Digital outputs x2 1 Coaxal 1 optical
    1x RGB scart
    1x S- Video
    1 set of component outputs (NTSC progresive scan capable)
    1 set analogue stereo outputs
    1x composite video output
    remote control input and outputs (for linking to other Marantz products)
    Internal / external remote switch.

    The main reason I bought this player was it's ability to output progresive scan with region 1 NTSC discs.

    I already owned a good quality, if rather long in the tooth DVD player the Sony 725 bought 2 years ago at a cost of £500.
    The Marantz is I think is a very good player about on par with the sony which is not a bad thing.
    Remember though it will only be as good as the screen/TV you play it into.
    If you need a picture I could e-mail you one.

    thanks bazkav
    from the picture that i saw there seemed to be some sort of socket on the rear & i thought that it may be for a software upgrade in the future

    it seemed to be a small oval shape but i could not make it out from the picture

    i have actually ordered mine now along with an SR 7300 receiver, all i have to do now is wait for it to arrive

    No such input on my player and nothing in the instruction book about software upgrades.
    Thats not to say your player wont have this facility as it will not be a British model.
    Let me know if you like it when you get it.
    see you later.
