    I've been toying with the idea of changing my DVD player.

    The only one I would consider getting would be the TAG DVD32, do any of you guys know how much of a step up this would be ? does it warrant the £2.65k extra ?

    I may just pay the extra to take away the drive noise from the player when playing a disc (noisey biaatch)

    Any info on this would be appreciated

    I have noise on my dv88+ when loading the disc and going through menus.. but once the film starts (and the drive then slows) its almost silent.. are you uptodate with the firmware/driveware for your model ?

    Cheers

    See the news re. TAG Audio....DVD32 might not be an option...

    Sure glad I didn't splash out on that DVD player I couldn't afford....

    Regards,

    hi there all, I have a dv88+ and don't get any drive noise at all when using the dv88+. It may be worth checking out your transport to see if its the latest version - or needs to be replaced.

    thanks
