For those who think Pioneer's 747A could perform better, a specially tweaked version is now available courtesy of Townshend Audio - see this months HiFi Choice - they said it is absolutely fantastic - state of the art etc. Downsides? Only one - the price: £2000 for the upgrade (on top of the price of the 747A of course). Think I'd go for a Tag DVD32FLR if I had that sort of money to spend. Matt.
