I've been looking through various threads about the Arcam DV27 DVD player. it seems the mutts nuts, but then for £1600 it should be! I've currently got a component out enabled american player and I'm using dodgy patched together cr@p cable. And its not progressive I'm about to order some component cable from The Media Factory. Amonst a thousand other combinations I *was* considering the denon 2800 but there seems to be a few issues. So now I'm looking at the DV27. One thread seems to suggest that to watch a PAL progressive and a NTSC progressive I have to do some cable switching. Is this true? Looking at the pictures on what video & tv review there does seem two component outs - 1 labelled component, the other labelled progressive. Seven Oaks indicate that its remote switchable for region coding. Can it be chipped so its automatic? If I'm ordering from meida factory, I might as well order what I'll need in the future (i.e. an extra set of compy cables). They say phono to BNC x3 for component video. Don't I need phono to phono? Also is £1600 the only price available? pricerunner doesn't find anybody.
