I've had a JVC XV-F80BK progressive scan 7 disc dvd player for almost a year now and was pretty happy with it. This model is one of JVC's 2nd generation progressive players using the same chipset as the 723 1st gen, and performs the same as any 1st or 2nd generation JVC progressive player. All the excitement about the new Panasonic RP82 and it's 5 disc changer clone, the CP72 regarding the superior performance of the Sage/Faroudja chip got me curious. I picked up a CP72 last weekend and swapped out the JVC, and redid AVIA with the new player. The Panasonic seems to be a bit smoother and more detailed as far as color variations than the JVC. It does not have the scaling feature the JVC had, and I'm starting to miss that a bit. My tv doesn't lock into full with progressive scan, but the JVC's scaling looks a lot better than the set's zoom. I also like 4/3 movies with black bars better than with gray bars generated by the set. Could anyone who's had or tried both players recommend some good demo discs that demonstrate a significant difference in picture quality between the 2 players, along with specific scenes or chapters? I'm trying to weigh the benefit of better pic quality vs lack of scaling feature in deciding which player to use. So far I've not seen a huge enough difference, but I may not be looking at the right dvds. My collection numbers about 400 so I'm sure I already have copies of any discs you guys and gals could recommend. Each of the 2 machines has a few features the other doesn't, but the main thing I'm interested in is picture quality. I'm willing to give up the scaling feature if somebody can lead me to a disc that really shows a clear superiority on the part of the CP72. Of course, the more I look at the nifty mirror/silver/techno styling of the Panny vs the clunky look of the JVC, the more I'm tempted to just pick the Panny anyway. Thanks in advance for any help.
