I've had my DV-717 for nearly 5 years but a recent development of a lipsink "feature" (problem) means we will have to part. I've a Yamaha A2 amp. Digital connections to this are giving what I think is great sound. I may one day get a Plasma/LCD but am put off by the price and the fact that HDMI inputs, which I like the result of, are so new and at a premium. But should I future proof my next DVD player purchase with iLink, HDMI, prog scan etc, when I'm not in the market for a new screen for a year or so?
