    I am thinking of getting a Marantz DV4400 and wondered if anyone in has any comments on them? There were no reviews on this model however there was a post on this forum regarding the DV4400, but no one seem to know anything about this DVD player.

    Any advice would be most appreciate

    Just wrote this reply and realised its over a year late!!!! anyway I'll let it stay in case anyone out there is looking at the budget end of things.

    Hi Zero1seven,

    I am in the market to buy a new dvd player. there are some threads here which suggest this isn't a great buy. For a start the previous model had prog scan, and for some reason the 4400 doesn't. It moved away from the slim line back to a chunkoer model. I know nothing of the PQ ro Audio, but have always been a fan of Marantz hardware. I have the 4100OSE which I thought was great and I pair it with a Marantz SR4300.

    I have a feeling, just looking at RS stuff and then finding reviews, is that the Cambridge 540Azur is a nice machine (no DVI), don't go for CA DVD79 (has DVI -some problems creeping in), or Pioneer 575.

    Just in my linited research, if you've got a TV which has a DVI input, this is going to give you the best PQ. The only budget machine to so is CA DVD79. But it's not meant to be a great player. No reviews yet, its a lip synching porblem i read in these threads.

    Otherwise go for a machine which does composite well. So again entry models like CA and Marantz and Pioneer. For me I have no real interest in DVD A or SACD from my dvd machine (Yet!). But I'm pretty ****** off at Marantz for including prog scan in the 4500 and 4300 model but not the 4400.

    Summary of my 2 cents. Choose something else. Even though I've already ordered this in, after my research, it's going back. However, what I'll actually get I still don't know, Let us know how you get on.
