    I have a Pioneer elite pro 99 that does not take progressive input so I'm looking for the best interlaced dvd player on the market, new or used. Any recommendations?

    Hi Doug, I have a Panasonic rv80 which I think is an excellent player, of course it's no longer being made so used is the only option. It has componet video & built in DD & DTS decoders. It's easy to operate, excellent video. Since it has built in decoders it also has six channel output but most recievers don't have six channel inputs anymore. It originally cost around $500 new.

    Almost all receivers have 6 channel inputs now for DVD audio and SACD. I would look at the Toshiba 4700/5700 and Panasonic RA60. All of these have excellent interlaced pictures and play DVD audio. The sony NS500 also has a good picture and will play SACD. All of these players can be had for $300 or less.

    Doug, I think the Sony 9000ES is a better interlaced player than progressive and it's on sale many places for $799. It's built like a rock and it's 2 channel sacd playback is nothing to sneez at... Best wishes!
