Pioneer 757ai- Wise move?

Hello everyone,I'm new to this forum.

I recently sold my Pioneer 464 ( Homecinemaheaven) as it was generating a very slight green haze 2/3 s up the screen.I have a Panasonic 100hz 36" tv but without component sockets, currently using a Squart rgb cable.

My friend brought his 757 round for a demo and it seemed to play fine. . i couldn't see any of the green haze anyhow! I like the idea of SACD too. I have a Sony STR940 and TDL 3 speakers with Tannoy centre and JBL rears.

My question is- should i purchase a 757 for £439 from some company in Bolton or just get a non Pioneer dvd player for £200 or less? I play a lot of DVD-R's so a player that reads them would be essential.

Your help would be appreciated!

Christ that was a windy trip!

Got my 757 from sound and vision. Very helpfull staff indeed, had to pick the player up from a warehouse a mile away but that was no problem, they had the player to me in a couple of minutes.

I will definitely recommend this company. Only problem i saw was at the warehouse a bloke from Hull had come to pick up a Denon player and they hadn't region hacked it. He was understandably well pist off. I would therefore get them to physically check any stock item if you are collecting from them.

Overall a good company to do business with.

I very much doubt they are the same shop from what the salesman said!

Get yourself Dark Side of the Moon - cracking SACD - shows what high resolution surround sound is really capable of - amazing when you think it was recorded back in 1973!

Got my Pioneer 757 a few weeks back - very impressed.

Enjoy.

That will be my first purchase!


Looked on Play.com.

Are there any other sites that sell Sacd's?
