    Hi All

    Which player is best? Both got good reviews. I have especially seen an excellent review of the DVP-S735D but the DVP-S7700 looks a better machine (Is it?). I can get them both mutli region for a similar price. What do you lot think. Which one should I get?

    I think on picture quality they're similar but sound is wonderfull on the 7700.Also can't better the build quality of the 7700,weighs more than twice the 735.Of course the 735 is a newer model but they were running concurrently with the 7700 retailing for 800 and the 735, 450.<br />I have a 7700 and after reading the specs it is quite special,oxygen free cable,gold plated fuses,copper plated chasis,cast iron feet with graphite inserts,separate laser for music with seperate audiophile board,the list goes on.<br />Obviously this is biased because I cannot compare it to the 735 which I have heard is a very fine machine,however I do also own a 9000es nad although it is slightly bettr than the 7700 (picture wise)there's not a lot in it.The 7700 does sound better on cd's.Although the 9000 plays sacd.<br />Hope this helps.<br />Simon

    It's gotta be the S7700.

    What a machine.<br />Picture top notch and sound.

    The machine is classed as highend.

    And the build quality?

    That sliding front is a beaut. Reason why I am not keen to get the 9000 as the 9000 has this front absent.

    Interesting responses, I have a 7700 and love it but I had presumed that most £400 machines would now kick its butt! Forget the audiophile qualities of the machine and build quality; what about the fact that most modern machines now use faster video processors etc.?

    Givem the Choice I would still go for the Toshiba 9000 at £350 multi region (no scart) but the 9000 and 7700 can still see many a player off today. The are TOP quality players at attractive prices today. Quality is always quality regardless of a few years and a drive to get everyone upgrading even when they don't need to.

    Anyone heard a Marantz CD94 recently.

    Go for the 7700, it is a 'quality product'

    A bargain at the current clearance prices.

    What's the current bargain price? IMHO not worth more than ~GBP350.
