All I know enough about TVs and DVD players is that I appreciate that could not make a rational decision about which to buy. Region & Pal I can just about get to grips with but RCE, multi scan, SACD etc are a bit of mystery. I want to buy my partner (who is even more technologically challenged than I am) a DVD player. She is a film fan, would order movies from the US and would want to play CDs It would be nice (but not essential) if the machine would play CDs weve purchased and compilations which could be mpeg files or old vinyl tracks extracted and written to CD with the aid of Toast 4. We have a Sony KV-32DS65 Digital TV and Nad T750 surround sound receiver/amp. So what should it be? I was thinking about a Sony NS900V until I saw the comments about the dodgy RGB picture output. Sony DVP-NS700, DVP-336, Pioneer DV444 or the Panasonic A7EB chipped to be multi region all seem to be contenders. Does anyone have any experience with these machines? And any experience of the different chip shops? How does the multimod by techtronics compare to the code free DVD ? Any assistance would be welcome.
