I have a sony 725 (one of the best looking dvd players ever in my option so much so i just bough a matching video :S) and a Philips DVDR 80, and when running it through s-video the picture difference between the two is minimal.(although i will try component tonight as the infocus component - S-Video cable came today) Also when it was new it got rave reviews for being as good a CD audio player a DVD player, i was just wondering if it would be worth upgrading to something like the pionner 575 and a similar budget CD player? Although i think i would have to demo alternatives first as i'm more than happy and have been for 3 years with the DVD player, is a (high-end) budget player as good as my old mid range sony? Feature wise it doesn't play mp3's, super audio/dvd audio or even super video cd's (and will only read cd-rw's not cd-r) but has the picture/sound quality changed that much? (it has loads of gimicky features and picture quality reduction and dynamic noise trickery, but that doesn't do much in my experiece) Anyway thanks for any advise.
