    I am looking into getting a progressive scan DVD player very soon to go along with my new Mits 46807.
    What is the general consensus as to which is the best one out there at a reasonable price???
    I am looking at the JVC XV-FA70BK, Panasonic RP-91, Denon 2800, Mitsubishi 6020, and now am open to other models if there are some better.
    Any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    The more I look around, the more I like the JVC model. But still, the Denon keeps grabbing me.....but so does the price of it.
    I am going to go and try out each of them and see which one I like better. The Mitsubishi unit isn't talked about much anywhere......is it available yet?

    I have a JVC 723 and am very happy with the unit. Delivers a very beautiful film like picture from anamorphic DVD's. The unit will also re-format at 4 x 3 letterbox DVD to 16 x 9, increasing the picture quality. Good luck.

    Well after some more looking around, and some talking to some knowledgable people.....I think the Panasonic RP-91 is the front runner right now.
    I am going to go tomorrow and look around and play with some of them to see which one I like.

    The Panasonic is still the front runner, after everything I have read it seems to be the best all around player.
    I didn't get a chance to try it out , the store was closed for a meeting.
    But I can get it online for $447 shipping included.......is that a good price?

    At $1000 the DVM-4800 is way out of my price range.

    I went through the same thing last month, Steven, and I ended up with the RP91 to go with my Mits 55" based on Obi's and others recommendations.
    I have been very pleased with its performance;it is so configurable for the varying quality of tranfers we find on DVDs. Plus there are alot of owners here that can help with set-up. $447 is a good price.
    Good Luck,
    DJ

    sounds like panasonic users are really active here. but it is only a part of the story. toshiba makes fine progressive models, too. and they might have more value. i picked up my sd3750 for 169+shipping.
    Cheers,

    Gentleman,
    I also am looking for a good DVD player. I am also deciding between the Panasonic RP91K. It plays DVD,'s, CD's, CD-RW's, and MP3 CD's. I also found the Pioneer DV-C36, which has progressive scan but has the 5-disc CD changer. It plays CD, video CD, and CD-R playback but NO M.P.'s. It costs $500.
    Can anyone help me by telling me what they think about these two players and which the best for playing movies and music. I like the fact that the Pioneer has the 5-disc carousel.
    Thanks.
    JaimeC

    Here's another vote for the RP-91, excellent picture quality and IMO the scaling features of the RP-91 beat the aspect ratio adjustments of the JVCs.

    Philips has a new model that has the "DCDi" by FAROUDJA. Retails at $499. I'm not sure, but I think it does the 3:2 pulldown. I need to look into it.

    What about the Sony DVP-S9000ES? How does it compare to the others?
    A low priced Sony progressive scan player is DVP-NS700P. I don't own either of these players. Anybody?
