    Was the Toshiba SD5700 the replacement for the SD6200?

    If so, how does it compare? (ie, what improvements were made)

    If not, what is?

    Well, the SD6200 didn't have MP3 decoding did it... :b

    No idea on whether the progressive picture improved at all. Did you look in Secrets?

    5700 has DVD audio and if I remember correctly the 6200 didn't.

    I suppose the 5700 could be considered a replacement for the 6200, but in terms of capability, the SD3750 would be more of an exact match. The 3750/4700/5700 are all basically identical inside with the 4700 adding the circuitry required for DVD-Audio and the 5700 adding HDCD decoding to the mix and with a silver chassis.

    The 3750/4700/5700 are really completely different inside from the 6200, but by all accounts, performance is at least on-par. The 3750/4700/5700 do a better anamorphic downconversion for 4:3 TVs.

    You mentioned the 3750... but what about the 3780?

    That just came out about a month or two ago.

    Well I had the sd4700 and the picture quality was good to excellent. One thing to note though is that it does have the chroma bug. Other than that it was a good trouble free player.

    Take Care,

    I had a 6200 - it was ok. I like my JVC a bit better, picture wise, but I like the ergonomics of the Toshiba. I didn't like the dual disc mechanism though - seemed like something that could break a little more easily (just an opinion.) I didn't think it added anything - probably the last dual or multi disc player I'll ever get.

    Sorry, we don't get the 3780 up here in Canada, so I have no idea what it's like.
