Without a doubt: Ayre D-1 : http://www.ayre.com


Now my question...


What is the best interlaced player for under $3500?

can't let this thread go.......


the Proceed PMDT. (ok, ok...a working PMDT)


imo, the larger differences are in audio quality...and the unit's ability to serve as audio (or soundtrack) transport. keep in mind, in basic configs. the Ayre and Proceed have only digital analog out.


for "just" video, i think the Toshibas hold a slight edge over the Panny's, this (invisible, to me) chroma bug notwithstanding.


my recommendation would be to buy a Toshiba2800, now reduced to $129 list, and demo it.

Great! I came to this conclusion after extensive research. I suppose this player has the same video chip on Panasonic RP-82 that's been discontinued but everyone raved about. I know you can play DVD-RAM with this player but do you know if you can play DVD-R? This unit does play DVD-Audio but not SACD(which is okay because I think SACD is a dying format).


If the unit can't handle DVD-R, do you know anyone who can mod the RP-91 with SDI output. I want to feed it to my Holo3Dgraph card and scale it to my projector. This way I get best of both words using RP-91's audio output.

The THX certified Integra DPS-7.2 is a very good interlaced only DVD player. It has sharp 3d video and great audio. I used to use this player on my old Infocus DLP projector before I upgraded to the HT1000 and Bravo D1 DVI combo. I still use the Integra with the video cut-off switch activated for music.

I'll third the Panny RV80, from all I've read for 4 years. Get a used one from eBay ........ shouldn't cost you much for stellar interlaced performance.

The RP-91 plays DVD-R's, DVD-RW, DVD+R's and DVD+RW discs. I have the player so I know first hand.
