Well after reading reviews about the Hitachi P505E at http://www.theironduke.plus.com/HitachiSyndicate I have decided not to get this player. The picture quality sounds crap! So, I need some more suggestions - I think I'll up my budget to £300 - £400 What should I get? Thoughts so far are the Pioneer 636 - although I've heard that this one has layer change delays. Things I'm looking for are: 1) Good picture quality, no artifacts etc. 2) Coaxial AC3/DTS out 3) CD/CD-R (maybe RW) audio playback Thanks for any suggestions.
