I know their totally different as far as playback options go. But which one is the better 'bang for the buck'. I own the 45A right now but have 8 days to return it if you guys change my mind. Here are the main pro's(as I see it) to each; 45A- SACD, DVDA playback Bass management Pure cinema progressive picture DVDRP82- Cheap no chroma bug(what does that mean anyway? I'm afraid to ask cause now I'll notice that to on the 45A) proggresive scan, 3/2 pulldown? The main reason I'm asking is that the 45A has artifacts all over the background of the picture and their is digital noise that really pisses me off because now all I see is that. I really hate coming hear and becoming educated in these things because I WAS happy but know I'm not so sure. Any of you had or compared both?
