    Hey all, just ordered a WS65-813 from Tweeter (great deal at 2,999) and am looking for a good DVD player for low dollars (if it exists)...the Tweeter salesman was trying to sell me a Sony NS975V...any opinions? How important is it to match your TV to a specific DVD player?

    Thanks all!

    Steve,

    Since the Mitsu has a native 480p resolution, look for a Denon 2200. Last I heard some Tweeter stores still had some lying around. I think their price on them was around $300 (the player originally sold for over $600). The 2200 will give you an outstanding 480p signal.

    Most of the new upconverting DVD players have their fair share of problems. While I think upconversion has its benefits, I think staying in the 480p realm is your best bet with the CRT Mitsu.

    Good luck!

    A 480P Player for your Mits is the best bet. The difference in an upconversion player was minimal at best for my Mits.

    A Denon 2200 would be nice. If not then you are either looking at new(the new Sony is reportedly good the 975) or you could go looking around on ebay for a Panasonic XP30/XP50 which was a great player. If you want brand new, then the 975 is the player I'd get.

    There is a new Yamaha changer that looks interesting if you are into SACD/Dvd-A and want a changer.

    Thanks for the feedback guys...


    If upconversion isnt a big deal on the Mits, I think I would avoid the 975...Would the Yamaha model be the DVDC750?


    btw, sorry about Oklahoma last night.

    I wouldn't necessarily avoid it because it has upconversion. The 480P output is what you are most concerned with. All reports seem to indicate its very good for that.

    I went with a Denon 2900. Now a real newbie question, should/can I pipe the video through my AVR (Yamaha c940) or directly into the TV? No DVI output on the DVD so I am going to be component regardless.

    feel free to correct me if I am wrong...and I probably am. [​IMG]

    Steve,

    I would connect the 2900 straight to the TV if that option is available. I'm not totally familiar with that receiver so I don't know how it's video conversion capabilities are.

    Oh and very nice choice on the DVD player! I will be picking up my factory sealed 2200 tomorrow [​IMG]

    Try the Sony 975 via 480p HDMI -- you won't be disappointed.
