    Well I've just got the 470 and I love it. I didn't need the DVD-A os SACD and so the 470 was just the ticket. Superb picture through component video and using it's progressive scan capabilites, which it can do for both PAL and NTSC. I recommend it.

    Don't know anything about the Sony DVP-NS585P though, so how it measures up against that I don't know.

    I'd recommend the 470 too.

    Question, do you get an audio glitch everytime audio starts ??

    I had to make the same choice and went for the Sony. So far it has been an excellent player and believe I made the right choice.

    The Pioneer 470/575 does have a better speced DAC but I don't like the build quality of them. I borrowed a Pioneer 575 and the picture looks just as good to me on the Sony 585.

    I am using the component output with PS enabled and on a Panasonic AE100 projector.
