Greetings, I've just replaced an old Sony 21" TV with a new Panasonic TX36PD30 (36") TV which has component inputs and NTSC and PAL progressive scan. Very impressed so far I currently have a 1999-vintage Toshiba SD2109 DVD player - with the exception of one aspect of its performance (see later) I've always been very impressed with this player. I'm now thinking of replacing the Toshiba DVD player with something that supports NTSC/PAL progressive scan (which I assume means it *will* also have component outputs) - for not more than about £250... - Must have have an RGB SCART. - I'm not worried about onboard DD/DTS decoding. - I have a strong preference for a black case - I would settle for silver, but gold is definitely out. - Best picture quality is the main selection criteria. I've narrowed it down to: Sony DVP-NS930V (£250 - current fav.) Harman Kardon DV30 (£250) Cambridge Audio Azur 540D (£250) Yamaha DVD-S540 (£150) Any thoughts on which to go for ? are they much of a muchness, or does any one of them really stand out ? Any other machines to consider ? I'd be interested in another Toshiba (based on past experience), or a Panasonic (to match the new TV), but I couldn't find any matching my specs. BTW-#1: How are these players on layer changes ? the only real beef I have with my current Toshiba is that layer changes are usually slower than the sinking of the Titantic, but I'm assuming this is not the case with current generation players ??? BTW-#2: Is there any difference between a Sony DVP-NS930, and a DVP-NS930V ? I've seen both listed on PriceRunner.com and the only difference seems to be that the non-V has "3D Surround", but I'm assuming that maybe one of them is a slightly updated model ? Thanks in anticipation. PitBull.
