This is an imported player, not the one you can buy in Europe or the UK. Cost about 550.00 uk pounds all in all. Has PAL progressive and NTSC progressive and is region free. No Scart connection, but it does have SVHS and CVBS. Has the Farouja/ sage deinterlacing chipset with DCDI. Feels nicely built, not as good as a Tosh 900 but better than my old Pioneer 962D. Very quiet in operation with a smooth precision disk drawer mech. On screen menus had me a bit confused, but easy enough when you get used to them. Handset is fine, not illuminated but it glows a bit in the dark. Picture quality, well this one is displayed through my new PJ so comparisons with my old TV are a bit difficult. Playing Titan AE last night it was superb, colours rich and a three D effect I have heard other people reporting on high level players. Blacks were good too. Plenty of high level detail. What really amazed was the difference in sound Q, I thought it would be about the same as my old player, but its much clearer with speech being better represented and a general tightening of bass. This means any metallic clanging sounds are far more real and you can hear subtle echoes better. All in all, brilliant, not even played with all the settings, or bothered with the SACD. All in all 10/10 What do others think?
