    Hi,

    Im interested in what the favourite is for a player under £1000.

    This is my budget (honest) which im going to stick to, so any advice on the best model would be appreciated.

    I have a Panny Plasma TH42PW5B being delivered tomorrow, to couple with the new DVD Player.

    Cheers
    Speedy

    Would think your best bet is the Denon 3800 with the new/most recent firmware update. This will give you PAL and NTSC progressive scan and DVD-Audio, if that's of any interest to you.

    It can be had online for under £800 (Multi-Region), leaving you some cash for decent component cables and a few shiny new DVDs :)

    Marantz DV8300 buts its 100 quid over yr budget.

    Toshiba SD900E £699 @ leconcepts, superb but no pal progressive.

    The Marantz wipes the floor with the Denon 3800 in Januarys Hi Fi choice mag review.

    Arcam DV89 soon

    Which mag? I have the Jan 2003 Hi Fi Choice in front of me and there's no mention of a Marantz DVD player review.

    The Denon 2800 MkII did however win their DVD player group test £750 to £1200 .

    using most of your budget I would say the following should be looked at/auditoned and then you can make a better choice...

    Denon DVD-3800

    Arcam DVD88+

    Toshiba SD-900E

    Personally I would go for the 3800 as 'overall' I think it is the best player IMHO...
