    I am swithering between buying a Jamo DVR50 or a Panasonic SCHT900 All in One System.

    The Panasonic is cheaper and the speaker setup suits me more. However it only has NTSC Progressive and not PAL Progessive also like the Jamo does. It it a big deal?? My DVD collection is near all PAL and I am buying a Plasma TV also an want the best possible picture.

    Cheers.

    Personally I think PAL progressive at its best is fantastic. Its a higher resolution than NTSC and a progressive image cures the flicker problem common at 50hz with PAL televisions. Plus I think running a film at 25 fps which was originally 24fps is a better solution than 3:2 pulldown. Of course many NTSC dvds are still better than the same PAL version because they simply did a better job of transferring it from film but PAL DVDs for me are the maximum potential performance. So personally I I think pal progressive is important.
