    Hello all,
    I need a progressive scan player [​IMG]. MY TV is the Tosh TN61X81 RPTV. Here are the points.
    1.) I have to decide between the JVC and Sony Models.
    (I have read the DVD shoot out at secrets and they seem to like both JVC and Sony)
    2.) IF JVC, I need to decide between the single disk or carousel models.
    (I have heard about some problems in the changer transport mechanicals on the & disk)
    3.) I'm not too crazy about DVD-A. However, elctronic equipment in my house typically does not go bad and I have a lot of difficulty buying new stuff when the old one still funcions. [​IMG] ( I still have an NEC mono VCR from 1988, my Technics SA-GX335 prologic rec., [​IMG] ). SO, if DVD-A will flourish in the next year or so, I may need it.
    4) Best of all, through my collected bonus points in my Sony card, I can get the Sony for free.
    So, should I get the Sony (free) or pay $250 to get the JVC 7 disk?
    Thanks to all.

    I would never turn down anything that is free, but I have read on this forum that some Sony players have reliability problems. You may want to research this a bit.
    I own a JVC and am very pleased with its performance.
