    PJ, do you think the 575 is better than the Toshiba 350, PQ wise, over component?

    thanks in advance.

    Not compared 'em, I just know that the vast majority who have bought the 575 have been extremely pleased with the performance. I can't fault it, it even plays SACD and DVD-A very competently...PJ :)

    Have to second the awesome Pioneer DV-575a.

    Certainly the best machine i've owned so far.

    The Pic looks great on RGB Scart - so component can only be better. The sound quality is great too - but the best part for me is no visable layer change !! :clap:

    At £99.99 its a steal imho. :thumbsup:

    PS: Take the time to use the set-up menu - its well worth the effort.

    Pioneer it is then :)

    Just thought though. The 575 has been available for a while in Richer Sounds, so im thinking about waiting for the newer version.

    Do you think Richer Sounds will get them in soon or am I risking it a little?

    Just get the 575, the new 585 has not had a good review in the current What HiFi.

    Hi guys,
    I'd just like to reiterate what I've said on other postings on the forums regarding the DV-575 :-
    Namely IT IS A VERY VERY GOOD DVD PLAYER FOR THE MONEY
    Since I have owned mine I still cant get over the quality of its picture (connected to a Toshiba 32ZP48 PF3 CRT TV), but the sound is what does it for me, SACD, CD sounds great, have yet to try any DVD-A, but going by the audio performance so far that should be great too ??
    The 585 did not get a very good review in the latest WHAT HI-FI, this may be due to the fact either the competition is getting better, OR the 585 for whatever reason has some flaws in it, OR the reviewers have tightened up their opinions of what a new DVD player should perform like ??

    Needless to say, get yourself to RS and bag a bargain NOW, before they all go.

    TTFN,
    Graham.

    I am in a similar predicament..........

    I am looking to get a new DVD player to compliment my new 37PV500.

    Is the Pioneer DV575 better than the Toshiba SD350E ?

    The Pio is £99.95 at RS and the Tosh is around £80 from what I have seen.
