    Hi,

    Even the very cheapest models in the US have progressive scan. Shame it doesn't feature DVD-Audio as it has a high enough spec DAC for it. Why do they do that?

    Do a search for the Yamaha DVD S540.

    You can get it for £120 and it has PAL progressive as well as a 12bit DAC.

    I'm thinking of buying one myself but would like to see a review or two first.

    Cheers,
    Cal.

    the Panny is way butt ugly! the yammy s540 may be the best for its price but judging by the performance of the s530 i dont think the 540 is on par with pioneer 36x range?

    It may be ugly, but the S75 gave a very detailed and artefact free image on my projector (not unlike the Pioneer 656), and at around £120 is great value.

    I was tempted to get one myself, but it doesn't have PAL progressive, and my htpc gives a better picture.

    Gary.
