I am in the market to buy a DVD player. I currently have a 100Hz TV with no component connections, but I was advised on another thread to think about future-proofing against a TV upgrade (which might be sooner than I planned - 100Hz artefacts are really starting to get on my tit. But thats another story.) So, to get me out of paralysis-by-analysis mode, I decided on the following conditions. Good picture/sound ratings from the reviews links page on this forum Price no more than £500, preferably more around the £200-300 mark PAL progressive scan Ability to play as many recordable DVD formats as possible And heres the shortlist Ive come up with (cue roll on the drums). These are in no particular order. Sony DVP NS930V (possible MPEG artefact problems?) Harman Kardon DVD30 (a bit pricey, but seems to get the best overall figures for jitter, signal-to-noise and other tests from What Video) Philips DVD-963SA (some issues re getting PAL progressive scan?) Limit DVDA900SE (no formal reviews available - apparently good sound but some build quality issues?) Id appreciate any feedback that those of you in-the-know could give me re this list. (Im not really too fussed about the DVD-Audio or SACD performance this functionality is just there because the machines I found that do PAL progressive just happen to have audio capability as well.) What would your recommendations be? Are there any major problems with any of these machines? Does one stand out from the crowd? Are there any machines Ive overlooked that might save me £££ without compromising picture/sound quality? Am I making too much of PAL prog scan as a requirement? In short, Im in the market for any comments that might stop me hemming and hawing and actually make a decision!
