    Both these players can be had for 500 quid now but dont know what to go for. My projectors an H56 so has DVI the people i have spoken to in shops like the 668 but then dont have any 757's in stock. The only review so far is the what hifi in which the 757 come out on top all round but they ignore HDMI (cheers for that) so im stuck in limbo i dont want to wait months for all the reviews to come out only to find something better in the pipeline as always happens any ideas guys?

    Don't trust reviews - test them for yourself

    If you are going to buy a Pioneer Plasma with HDMI then get the 668, if not then get the 757 for the iLink feature.

    You will find a relevant thread in this forum. A few weeks ago I tested an 868 vs 757 and 668 vs a 757 all through component.
    The 757 was better than the 668 and the 868 better than the 757.
