    Hi,

    Has anyone used both the Pioneer 747 and the Tosh 900E

    Also the pioneer 747 is a generation model up from the tosh and it has a 108MHz / 12-bit video DAC


    and the Tosh 900E has

    54MHz 10bit DAC
    Horizontal line resolution 540


    Maybe someone on the forum knows someone who works in a a/v shop, who could tell us.


    ta

    Hi

    er yes, but still does'nt answer the question about the picture quality of both players, most people in that thread seem not to have a pioneer 747, or seen them both. Has anyone got one?

    By the way, i accidentally hit the new thread button, instead of the reply button, with this original post. My mistake.

    I've got a Pioneer 747A. What a fantastic machine it is...picture is simply breathtaking..makes any DVD shine, excellent Sound too! I got it over the Toshiba 900 because of a few reasons: 12Bit 108MHz Video DAC, Scart RGB loopthough, DVD-A/SACD, full SVCD compatability and DVD-R/RW/+R/+RW compatability.

    I've always loved the Toshiba 900E and always wanted one, however i needed the RGB loopthrough so much it was never an option before the Pioneer 747A came out!

    hi,gareth

    the pioneer dose almost everything under the sun but the only thing that put me of pioneer's is that it seems to have a few problems playing some discs in the past,but i hope the new 747A are ok :)

    Yep Jeepers Creepers had a problem, however, doing title 1 and chapter 1 allowed me to watch the movie. I ran Jeepers Creepers on the PC and did a MPEG authoring check and the menu is incorrectly created, The GOP value jumps to 15 causing the play to crash...stupid these film companies eh
