I am in the market for a new dvd player to run through my PTAE100 projector (progressive scan). My question is this: i was thinking of buying either the Pioneer dv757ai (originally £800 but now £450) or the arcam dv88+ (was £1000 now £500). However I have been reading reviews of the Cambridge Audio 540 Azur dvd player (£250) which look pretty good. This month's HCC even says that, on a "casual" basis, that it is difficult to tell the CA Azur apart from a Denon 2900 (same class as Pioneer and Arcam)!!!!! What is going on - are midrange players now competing against higher end models owing to leaps in technology? The Pioneer and CA weigh approximately the same - will damping, power supplies be similar, etc.? What will the more expensive models have over the CA? Is it simply build quality - though I have read that the CA has excellent build quality! DVD playback is a priority - DVD-A is nice - and SACD is not really an issue. One more thing - the Pioneer has i-link and newer models carry HDMI. Should I forget all the above and wait for the price of newer players with these features to drop? HELP!!!!!!!
