    Just bought a Sony DVPNS700 player. I am currently using a scart connection. The bloke in the shop told me that if I use a "good" S-video cable, I will notice a huge difference in picture quality.

    Which is better, Scart or S-video?

    Thanks.

    RGB is normally agreed to be the best quality video output and this is only available through a fully wired scart.

    Buy a reasonable quality scart lead which is a great improvement on the freebies that come with the players.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Ho much should I pay for a "reasonable quality scart lead"? Where is the best place to get them?

    try a fully wired 21 pin QED Sqart from www.hifibitz.co.uk for £42.99 inclusive. you could get an rgb specific one (i.e. where only the necessary rgb pins are wired up) for the same price, but then u could only use this for rgb signals, limiting the reusability.
