    Howdy Fellas :smashin:

    Thinking of getting either:
    Pioneer 470
    Sony ns585 or
    Yamaha SL100

    Can anybody give their opinion of which would be best to go for?
    Wondering if there's any difference between them?

    I opted for the Sony 585 over the Pioneer 470. I had a 575 to test and while it was a excellent player, the build quality was questionable. The Sony is much better looking. The 470 looks the same and just has no SACD or DVD-A
    capabilties.

    The Pioneer does have a higher spec 12 bit 108Mhz Video DAC but, it doesn't really outperform the Sony's 12bit 54Mhz DAC.

    With the Sony, I am using a component output using progressive scan on a PTAE100 projector. I find it a excellent combination.



    I don't have experience wih the Yamaha but I have never liked their appearance.

    cheers for the response nwgarratt.
    I'm hopefully getting a HS51 projector in the new year,
    so a 585 might do the trick.
