    Hiya,

    Im hearing a lot of people talking about arcams on here and i would like to ask people for their honest opinions.

    What is the best Arcam dvd player to get if i plan to get it SDI Modified to run into a Lumagen HDP scaler for then viewing on a 42inch HD plasma???

    I have a great CD player so Pure Picture Quality is my main priority!

    (i currently have a Arcam DV88 with the progressive Scan upgrade)

    Thanks in Advance for all your opinions.

    (If anyone feels that the best dvd player to have SDI modified is not an arcam, please also leave feedback, thanks)

    Why not just mod your DV88+ ?

    If not, I'd say the DV27A is probably the best candidate at current price of ~£950, if you can still find any.

    You might be better off putting this in the Arcam forum!

    As cwick mentioned you maybe able to still pick up a new dv27a for half its rrp but I think you should at least speak to someone who's seen an SDI modded one up against a dv88 or better still try and demo them side by side before parting with your cash. A good place to start may be pj hifi in Guildford. Very helpful people and pretty clued up on this sort of thing so I gather! Good luck!
