I want to buy a DVD player budget up to £1000, but would prefer not to spend all of it! I currently have a Plasma (NEC 42mp2) and would like to get a progressive scan player to make it look better! I see from some of the threads that there are hacks for Multi-region and even some for PAL progressive scan. I own few DVD's, but travel frequently (going to Malaysia next week, where I will probably buy the recommendation that you give me) therefore MR is important. Will buy a Pioneer AX10i in the future. Also am quite keen on the multi-function of CD, MP3, DVD-A and SACD player as well - i.e. an 'all-in-one box' Thank you for you help, Ozzie. p.s. Assume I know nothing!
