I saw the new JVC series, which will be avlble at www.askdirect.co.uk and www.unbeatable.co.uk in April. I also saw a relevant article by Jonh Archer in TotalDVD. (click: http://www.totaldvd.net/cgi-bin/displaynews.php?id=5667) I was ready to buy the Yamaha S540 for my brand new Thomson 32WB643 but when I saw the info about this new series I changed my mind. Especially the model XV-N412 seems perfect! PALprog, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, video D/A 12bit/108MHz, etc.. All these for only 82GBP! Do you know anything about this model? Do you think it's better than the S540? Shall I wait till April to be released?... Thanx in adv!!
