    My JVC SA75 is freaking out on me a lot now. Wont read a lot of discs(Simpsons season 2...arrgghh) I am looking for a relatively inexpensive progressive scan DVD player, preferably with DVD-A, and without the chromo bug that would work. Also, a coaxial digital out is a must.
    The Kenwood 605 looks good, but I dont know what chipset it uses. The Panny RP82 sounds too damn good, but I dont know who carries it, or what chipset it uses.

    Any ideas?

    I just picked up the Panny RP82 and it is an excellent player. I have been converting VHS and laserdisc to DVD-R and DVD-RAM so I was looking for a player that read DVD-RAM / DVD-R. This unit along with the RP91 are the only players available right now that read DVD-RAM.

    I tested the player's progressive scan with many tough DVD's, Fifth Element, Gladiator and others and it played flawlessly. The player also read DVD-RAM discs of Wyatt Earp and Once Upon A Time In The West with no problem.

    There are many places selling this player. such as;

    Crutchfield
    Abes of Maine
    OneCall
    Amazon

    I picked up mine at Abes. Good luck.

    OK...found on another thread that the RP82 uses DCDI. WHat about the Toshiba models. They have a DVDA with progressive scan, not too sure of model number. Do the Toshibas have the chroma bug?
