    Anyone with an opinion on a Harman Kardon DVD player? After I upgrade my receiver (H/K AVR330) I plan on upgrading my DVD player. Not really wanting to go above the $300 mark on the player. I'm reseaching everything but don't know much about the specifics of DVD players.

    Thanks for the input
    Rick

    Rick -

    I've never used an H/K player so I can't comment on performance. I do know that the DVD25/DVD101 use the NS Mediamatics Pantera II chip for deinterlacing. Also, H/K is about to release two new players, the DVD22 (MSRP $249) and the DVD31 (MSRP $349). The only difference I see is that the 31 supports DVD-A. I don't know if these new players are using the same deinterlacing chip or not. Onecall has them listed on their website and actually are showing the 31 for $299. Hope this helps!

    See...alot of technical stuff I don't understand. "Deinterlacing" and "DVD-A"...I pride myself on knowing some of this, but I'm pretty clueless right now.

    Thanks
