Well, the fun and discovery of the new 600 continue... Apparently unlike the JVC sa-70, the 600 does NOT auto-scale. Yes, it still has zoom, but it doesn't fit the screen as well as the scaling of the 70. So, lessee.. 2 fewer prog. scan modes... a MUCH worse Video mode in 480P... audio dynamic compresion either "ON" or "AUTO" (meaning ON, No OFF anymore) and now NO auto-scaling capabilities. Whoever said this player was basically the newer model of the sa-70 was a bit off. If it wasn't for the superb PAL-NTSC conversion, I'd be sending this back in an INSTANT. Bummed.... D P.S. If any 600 owners have players that DO auto-scale, (You can check with Towering Inferno, Poseidon Adventure, The Thing, among others....) Please lemme know as I undoubtedly have a defective unit. Peace!
