    I have had a Sony 735 DVD Player for around 4 years now. It has served me well, but I'm concious technology has moved on in the past few years so I'm thinking of buying something newer. I don't really want to spend more than £200 and was thinking of buying the Tosh 340. But will I get a marked improvement in performance from changing a 4 years old mid-range DVD player for a new budget model...or will I be downgrading instead of upgrading?

    Any thoughts/opinions would be welcome.

    Setup: Panny PW5 Plasma, Sony 735 DVD Player, Sony 940 Amp/Receiver, Sky+, Kef Eggs, REL Q150 Sub.

    I would suggest keeping the player unless you want to add SACD/DVDA or a faster layer change.
    It is allways nice to buy a new box, I should know as I have had a few but I do feel the player you have will still hold it's own except, in my opinion, the slow Sony layer change.
