How is it people, that in the land of DVD players costing from £29.99 (At Argos as a normal purchase, not in the sale) and right up to the likes of Krell at many £1000's we have a Maxim DVD player that was sold by Sky for £25.00 and which I bought as a result of returning to this forum after many years in AV wilderness, how come then that this diminutive little beast has progressive scan (PAL and NTSC I think) and is multi region straight out of the box. Also Dolby Digital and DTS decoders built in all for £25.00. Surely the performance will be cr...p, happy to report no such thing. Hooked up to my Hitachi PM 400E plasma watching the lion king I was gobsmacked and DTS, WOW. How can they produce such an item for such a price? Was about to buy another one and they have sold out, what a bummer!
