It's time for a new DVD player, but I'm clueless about the best match for my display. I've read good things about the Panasonic RP56 and RP91. Sony just came out with a new line that includes SACD (e.g., their 900 and 500 models) that range in price from $300 to $1000. Of course, my dealer is telling me that I should get the $1,000 Sony rather than the $300 Sony. I could probably justify the more expensive players if the benefits warrant them.


What do you guys think would be a good match for me? Thanks.

Are you using an outboard scaler? The Dwin HD-700 CRT, which I have, requires at minimum a line doubled signal bandwithwise or it won't sync to any picture at all. Your options are a 480i DVD player with an outboard scaler, or say a progressive 480p DVD player with no external scaler.

I have and am using the LD-10 doubler.


Steve, I think you had the same system before you upgraded, right? If a progessive scan DVD were to outperform an interlaced DVD plus my doubler, I'd be happy to use the progressive scan player. Are there any specific players (interlaced or progressive) that anyone would recommend for this set-up.

I've got a HD500/Faroudja 2200 combo with an old Pioneer combo LD/DVD 909. I'm in the market for a new player too. The Phillips player in the review looks good.

Look at the Sony DVPS-7700 with the Cinematrix mod. It's very interesting because the Cinematrix mod allow you to run at multiple frequencies and resolutions.
