    Hi.

    I have narrowed my choice of DVD player down to the following and I'm trying to decide which one to buy -

    Jamo DVD-593 or Pioneer DV-575

    Can anyone help?

    (Simply answers only please - I'm not a techie...)


    many thanks

    S-video output
    Six-channel
    analogue output
    Stereo analogue output
    Composite video output
    stereo audio output

    The Pioneer has

    A lot of people, including myself, are impressed with the 575. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It provides a great picture and plays everything in my experience. Do a search on this forum if you'd like more opinion...PJ

    Hi fizzi, ive got a 575 and it is great, both picture and sound quality. I recently upgraded the cheap component leads that I was using and this gave another leap forward in quality. Wow, how much better can this player get? :smashin:

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have tried sourcing the Pioneer and cannot find it ANYWHERE cheaper than Richer Sounds - which by the time you factor in delivery will cost a minimum of £146 (depending on which delivery you go for - and as a shift worker none of them suit me as I would need to know in advance) - the above price is also without any of the cables they try and flog at the checkout along with all the usual extended warranties.

    The Jamo on the other hand comes with FREE delivery and is on special offer for £125 at

    http://www.acton-gate-audio.co.uk/

    I have gone for this.

    Looks nice, be interested to know what you think. Don't recall it being discussed much hence you may unearth a "hidden gem"...PJ :)

    Hi

    I bought a Pioneer 585 from superfi at the weekend to replace my Denon 1710 which has been a massive disapointement.

    http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo-1.cfm/Product_ID/2353

    I am amazed with this player, the last Pioneer I had was I think the 686 which I was dissapointed with after reading reviews. I play this using Mark Grant component cables & just can't believe just how good it is without even tweaking it.

    I haven't owned a 575 so can't compare it but I am just amazed at how good the colours are & can now see what other forum members mean by the "3D Effect" which I thought to be a little bit of a red herring. Sound quality is also good.

    The machine is also heavy compared to my Denon & has an aluminium front, also looks good & the display is not to bright.

    Regards

    Gary
