I have a Toshiba 2109 DVD player region 2 only. i'd quite like multi region facility and am thinking of a new player. I don't need facilities but I do want the picture and sound to be as good as I currently have, I'm thinking of the Pioneer 444, does anyone know how it compares? I am also considering getting a DVD player to play cd's as well, I currently have a Marantz 67se (350 about 4 years ago) would the Sony NS900 be a comparable player and I assume it would beat my current toshiba for picture and sound? Any comments would be appreciated.
