Does anyone have any thoughts on a good progressive scan player? I'm in the market for a new one and have been looking at the Sony DVP-NS700P. Any opinions?

Read the DVD Shootout #2 (and #1)

I have a Panasonic RP91N as my primary player.

I have a Malata N996 for playing non Region 1/non-PAL material.

Supposedly, the Panasonic RP-56 uses Sage de-interlacer chip and Kenwood Sovereign series DVD players use Panasonic's MPEG chip. So all in all, maybe for the price (getting it at Cdn$ 330 plus taxes) the RP-56 is currently the best value (also comes with 3:2 pulldown).

I am impressed with my RP56, and if you shop around, you can find it pretty cheap. From my local A/V store, I paid $225 for mine. Something to consider.....the RP56 only comes with optical output. I now have a IDL-100 digital coax Monster cable collecting dust in the cabinet. Matt ------------------ ....Eat, Drink, and Be Merry, For Tomorrow We Die....--DMB

David,

FYI, the Panasonic RP-56 doesn't use the Sage-Faroudja deinterlacing chip. It uses the Genesis chip, like it's counterpart RP91.

Shane, Check out the new issue of The Perfect Vision. They rave about this low cost Sony and say its video is among the best, even the $1,000 players. Lee
