A newbie writes... I'm about to pour some of my hard-borrowed into a plasma, and possibly/probably an upgrade to my current all-Sony 3-year-old-or-so DVD and receiver combo. I haven't thought that hard about the DVD player & receiver yet, but was pretty much set on getting the Pioneer PDP433HDE plasma. Then when I mentioned this in another thread in this forum, Dutch wrote: "Is there a particular reason why you're going for the HDE model? The MXE model is usually £500+ cheaper, upgradeable (with a replacement video card), PAL progressive scan compatable, and is regarded as having a better picture than the HDE." Is there a quick answer to why the MXE would have a better picture? It surprises me that the technology isn't identical to the HDE. So, I'd appreciate any further thoughts on this - and links to related reviews/articles on the matter would help too. My initial 'possibles' for receiver and DVD were Denon AVR 3803 and Pioneer DV656A. Any opinions on these would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
