I'm in the market for a new DVD player, and I had been considering the Philips 963SA (assuming I can find one that works properly!!), as it has PAL prog (not particularly bothered with SACD at the moment, as my processor doesn't have a 6 channel input, but I can get that later - so no prizes for guessing what it is!!). However, I've read so much about the reliability problems with them, that I'm having second thoughts. The Tosh 900e is now available for £500 from some sources (like LE Concepts, although they don't have a great reputation, but with a reliable player like the Tosh I should be OK, right?), and has a fantastic reputation behind it, even though it was slightly more than I was looking to spend, but for a bargain like that, I'd be willing to stretch, I guess. So my question is this: is the Tosh going to be worth the extra funds over the Philips, especially with regard to PQ and sound - including CD playback? All answers greatly appreciated.
