I currently have a Toshiba SD-5700 progessive scan DVD playing to my Panny 300 on Component cables.


For anybody that has experience with this generation of Toshiba DVD players (circa mid 2001), can anybody tell me how the picture and sound compares to the Denon 1600, Panasonic RP82 and a working Bravo D1 (using DVI).


Trying to decide if I need to upgrade, or if the improvement is marginal.


Many thanks for the insight!

As far as comparing it to the Panasonic and Denon. The Panny and Denon are using a far better MPEG decoder that doesn't suffer from the chroma upsampling problem or the combing artifacts that you would see from player generated subtitles. They also use a superior de-interlacing solution so will favor much better with improperly flagged material and video encoded sources.


The Bravo on the other hand uses a very poor de-interlacing solution. This can be very distracting regardless of what output your using (DVI or Component). I would only recommend the Bravo if you are using the DVI out and even then the trade offs compared to a 1600 or 82 aren't really worth it.
