    7600? 7800? 9600? 9800?
    I think I can get a 9600 for about $599.00 Canadian. I can get the 7800 for $359.00.
    Which one should I get? I have lots of old VHS tapes. I will not necessarily tape too much in SVHS, as I would like to share with others who do not have SVHS, but I do want the best video quality possible.
    I am not certain I will do much editing.
    What does the 9600 and 9800 have that the 76/7800 does not?

    I believe only the 9X00 series have Time Base Correctors, which will give you a rock-solid picture. I LOVE my 9600 [​IMG]

    7800's have TBC aswell. I m trying to determine what the real life differences are between the 7600/7800 and the 9600/9800.

    I put a deposit on a 7800. It should be ok for me. Not sure how much I will use the SVHS feature, I just know this is the last VCR I will buy for a long time. I figure if it is SVHS, the regular VHS recording and playback should be as good as VHS gets. I say I may not use SVHS much because I don't want to record lots of stuff that I can't lend, trade or bring to a friends. I think the SVHS might be just to archive stuff I know I'll simply want top quality and it will remain at home.
    I will use the TBC Digital Noise Reduction while viewing the many many older tapes I have. If the DNR bothers me at other times, I will not use it.
    It would be nice to get a x600 if they are infact better than the x800 ones, but the only one I could find was a 9600 I think and I don't even want to spend the extra $250.00 plus dollars for those features I may not use much.
