    hi guys.....

    opinions needed!!!!

    i have a pioneer 565 dvd player which i use for NTSC prog scan playback on my 32 inch tosh movie playback only,i am thinking of upgrading to a denon 2200 but i'm not interested in multi-channel music as i use a seperate arcam system for stereo. i would like some feedback with regards to the step up in pic quality between the pioneer 565 or denon 2200 as i would only use it for movies is it really worth it??? looking to order the today if improvemant is huge, i will upgrade my tosh to a PAL prog scan set in the future to justify the upgrade or should i wait 6 months and do tv & dvd upgrade together?

    running a denon 2803 amp for surround if that helps???

    thanks in advance......

    I'm afraid I'm probably less knowledgable than you but for what it's worth I've just ordered the new Denon prog scan player from av-land for 109 inc, delivery. Model name is DVD-1710.

    oh yes it's gooood :) the step up in quality doesn't jump out at you immediatley but after a short spell the picture evolves into the most realistic balanced image i've seen,the sheer depth is amazing :eek: the build is hilarious this player doesn't just play discs.....it CONSUMES them!!!

    anyway enough rambling i'm off to tweak my new baby :hiya:

    ahhh i see what you mean smurfin.
    maybe i didn't explain myself very well........the difference wasn't immediate e.g scart to progressive scan immediate :eek:
    but after watching movies that i know inside out i did notice slight changes in tone & colour which become more apparent on credits and menus after all if the pioneer 565 was the same as denon 2900 then we'd all own one of them instead wouldn't we??? ;)
