I have just had my old LC10 repared after 2 years in the cupboard. I connected it to my Pioneer 501 amp and Sony 32FX68 using s-video and optical cables, and the result is amazing. I cannot tell the difference between it and my Pioneer 464 full sized player. The LC10 is very nearly 4 years old. Does anybody have any idea of a new full sized player that compares well to it in terms of audio and video performance. Ignoring the TFT screen of course! Cheers.
