If you are going with the QuadScan I would wait till later this month when they release the Quad Elite.

Hi! I was wondering if anyone has any opinions about the Quadscan Pro? Im thinking of that versus the DVDo iSCAN pro... one thing I do like about the quadscan is it has double the inputs that the iSCAN has. The price isnt as nice for the Quadscan but does anyone know if you can only get the quadscan from their website or can you get it from home theater stores? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Chris

i have a budget bigger than my budget.

The Quadscan is based on the Genesis gmVLX1A-X chipset, so the deinterlacing isn't as good as the iScan, but the Quadscan offers scaling, which the iScan doesn't.

Bottom line: for 480p, I'd get the iScan Pro in a heartbeat; it's much better than the Quadscan. However, if you need higher resolutions, the Quadscan is a good value.

How about the deinterlacing capability with the CI? is it as good as DVDO? or the same with Quadscan?

Not positive but, I do believe the CI uses the same Genesis chip as the Quad.

The quadscan 2.55 is available b-stock cheap (under a grand). The new quadscan elite is available. I believe the list is about $1600. Street price will be lower but not by a huge amount. It is available from a number of dealers including the boys at AVS. Where are you located? I can probably refer you to a local dealer. Even at $1600 I would buy it in a heartbeat over the image. Just make sure you get the filters removed if you are going to use it on a CRT. Removal should cost about $50 by a qualified tech. The elite has a switch which removes the final filter. You need to remove the preceding filter as well. This requires parts removal from the board, that's all.

The Crystal is more in line with the Quadscan as they both use the Genesis chip for de-interlacing. I believe the Quadscan has the edge in overall picture quality over the CI, especially since some of the latest upgrades.
