Philips 720SA


Established Member
Was thinking of getting the Philips 720SA as I'm a bit put off the Pioneer 575 'cos of the flickering problem many people are reporting. I believe the 720SA uses the same chipset as the 575. Anyone know if the same flickering problems occur on the Philips, or is it just the 575 affected?

Any other comments on the 720SA would be appreciated.

My 575 works fine. Its component output gives a great picture on my screen. No problems at all.

Thanks for the replies.

The cheapest place I’ve seen the 720SA is Amazon, for £109. Anyone know of anyone else selling them?

Richer Sounds don’t seem to do Philips players at all.


It doesn't appear to be listed at dabs.com any longer.

Does anyone know the cheapest place stocking this player?
