I have had this player since the start of DVD and been happy until recently as it's started playing up (skipping, sticking...). I am now going to update but to what? Ideally I'd love a DVD recorder but with the good old format wars I don't think this a good idea for the time being. I am I wise in getting a good budget player to tide me through? About £150 worth? Surely with the advances in DVD technology has made these as good as if not better than what I have. Or should I go for a Sony DVP-NS705 as I've been offered a chiped one for £200? SACD sounds good I have to admit. Any thoughts?
