Hi all, I have a US version of the above DVD player, and am considering replacing it. Two main reasons, one, I've never had it modded and so it will only play R1 DVD's, two, I'm a bit fed up with having to use a step-down transformer. I'm wondering what sort of money I'd have to pay these days for a new DVD player (to play R1 & R2 discs naturally) that is of similar quality to the Sony. I can't really be bothered to go through the hassle (and expense) of modding the 7700. It's hooked up to a Panasonic TC47PT1 telly, digital out to a Meridian 565 (i.e. I don't need on board DD decoding), Meridain DSP5000's all round.  Oh, I'm not interested in CD playback quality as I've got a 500 transport for that. [/edit] Sorry if this is a bit of a basic question, but I haven't had a need to buy any kit for several years so am not up to date with what's out there currently.
