We'd been using our Pioneer 504 for about 18 months and have always been impressed with PQ, particulalrly with our Yamakawa DVD outputting 720p. A few weeks ago during decorating we had to move it and managed to mishandle it causing a crack accross the front of the panel. No problem, rang Direct Line, they sent an assesor out and within a week they had sent out and fitted a new 505. They hadn't come to pick the old one up and other than the crack accross the screen, was working perfectly. We expected some messing with the settings but the 505 just didn't feel right. The colours were less vibrant, the detail in dark areas much poorer when the 504/5 were next to each other. This was on all connections whether it was DVI/HDMI or SCART. The better the source the more noticable the degradation. After a few days we rang Direct Line who sent a rep out from the supplier who offered to change the unit but said "the 505 is a backward step from the 504 as it was a cost cutting excercise to compete with cheaper models". Our 505 isn't faulty but they would exchange it as a gesture. Is there any point in getting a replacement or should I insist on getting a repair of the old unit. The supplier said that the 506 should be available soon and that might be better but no guarantee. Where do I go from here?
