I have an ancient Pioneer dvd player and I DESPERATELY need to upgrade to a progressive scan player for my Mitsu tv. Anyway, I've heard so many great things about the Panasonic RP-81 and CP-72 that I'm leaning in that direction. BUT - with the issue of DVD-Audio vs SACD and with the potential of HD DVD on the horizon, would it be better to wait and see what happens or spend the money now on a dvd player with Progressive scan and DVD-audio? I've looked around and I haven't found a lot of info on HD DVD, but it sounds like it may still be a ways away until an affordable unit is available. Does anyone have any advise for me on this?
