    I'm thinking of upgrading my current DVD player, Sony 735D, to an Arcam DV88 plus. I'll be running this through a Sony 10HT pj. Does anyone have experience of running a prog scan player through the 10HT and if so is there a significant improvement over a non-progressive feed? I think the Sony pj as an internal de-interlacer does this make a difference?

    (Maybe I should just save my money and put it towards a Barco Cine7 instead!).

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Hi,
    I don't know whether the VW10HT has the same de-interlacer as my VW11HT. But if it does, then IMO there's no point at all getting a progessive player.

    I have a Denon DVD-A1, at £2500 its probably one of the best progressive players you can get, yet I can hardly tell the difference between interlaced and progressive.

    I also have a Pioneer 737, and the deinterlacing on that machine is garbage compaired to the one inside the Sony projector.

    The de-interlacer in the Sony projector is fab. An upgrade maybe desireable, but for other reasons.

    On my VW10HT, I find the progressive output from my Pioneer 737 reproduces better than an interlaced output. The effect is subtle, mostly noticeable on scrolling titles and the like.

    Thanks for the replys chaps. I'll maybe try and get a demo machine at some point to see if the upgrade is worth it.

    (There's always that worry about upgrade for upgrade's sake.)

    I demo'd an Arcam DV 88+ with my 10HT a while back, and found that the difference to my current interlaced player was minimal to my eyes. But try it and judge for yourself.
