I have a 5109 and have been wondering if it is worth upgrading. If so to what... Is the Panny RP82 a major improvement over the 5109 ?? What other players should I consider.

Yes, it is better. But don't expect a massive difference. Much ofthat depends on the size and quality of your display.


I loved the 5109's duel tray. Wish more had it. :(

I had a Toshiba 5109 and upgraded for two reasons:


-Chroma Upscale bug...(Visible on my 46" HDTV)

-DVD-A


I upgraded to a similar model the Denon DVD-1600 (rebadged Panasonic RP-82 with upgraded DACs) and I am very happy. There are some downsides:


-No movie countdown timer

-No dual tray

-Menu system works differently, Toshiba menu was easier


Overall though, I am very pleased. Picture seems more film like than the 5109.
