Was thinking of going the route of a Panny TH-42PHW6 and a Iscan HD+ scaler. However i have noticed that the Pioneer PDP-435XDE has come down in price to the same level as the above Panny and scaler. The 435XDE is a TV-plasma, but that doesn't really matter as i am after the best picture. How does the scaler in the Pioneer perform? any good? Why i am tempted by the 435XDE is the HDTV ready thing, it got HDMI and supports the required 50Hz signals. If i connect my Denon 3910 thru HDMI to the Pioneer, would that give the same or worse or better picture compared to the Iscan HD+ connected to the Panny?
