I am a newbie, and looking to buy a Progressive Scan DVD player. I am wanting to know the real benefits of the Faroudja chip and it's performance versus some of the other High-end brands. I have the opportunity to buy a Yamaha DVD-S1200, which was a $1000 player a year ago for $300. It is supposed to by Yamahas best single disk player, but it does use the Faroudja chip or the 4:4:4 progressive component circuit.


Why was this such a expensive DVD player? What makes good, besides Yamaha's overall build quality. Was the Faroudja chip not available when this unit was constructed? Does Yamaha use there own proprietary technology, which is just as good?


I am really wanting a Yamaha since the rest of my system is Yamaha and it would match perfectly.

Does anyone know if the Yamaha DVD-S1200 has the Chroma Bug, or where I can find a list of players that do or do not have the bug.


Thanks.
