    Its being touted about a bit here for its pal prog scan (Asian version).

    Has anyone got it yet and seen it in action?

    I am seriously considering this as an alternative to my original choice of Tosh 900 (decide that 1600 is too much for to pay for Arcam FMJ27!).

    There's a review of the region 2 version (basically the same I think except it doesn't have the progressive scan output) in this months HiFi Monthly I think it was, good review too!

    Cheers,

    what about that Nautilus thing that hifibiz are selling?

    seems cheaper + its got a VGA output on prog scan! - this would be perfect for my plasma as I have an RGB VGA input also.

    any views?

    slowly narrowing it down.

    mmmm, think people have had a few problems with the Nintaus (presume that's what you meant), don't think it's as good build quality or as good with CDs, Audio in general. If you read the review of the Philips and peoples opinions on AVS Forum about it I think it really is the player to go for at the moment, for £600 (allowing for shipping/taxes in that) it's a bloody bargain compared to the likes of the DV27.

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    BTW you could always use a component -> VGA transcoder with the Philips, ok a little more cost but still a significant saving compared to UK players..

    thats the one I meant.

    with the converter issue: I could go component to component on my plasma.

    Are you saying its always better to go component to vga?

    thanks for the info.

    oh, sorry thought you had a projetor, no component to component will be fine.. it will be quite a combination I think, the PQ from the 962SA is supposed to be fantastic!

    Cheers,
    Andy

    There is supposedly a 963 due out here in the UK. September is the rumour.

    I fancy one though, £1600 for DV27 is a bit steep.

    Anybody bought one from the guys in Hong Kong?
