    Currently, I own a Pioneer CLD-503 player. I'd like a little better picture quality.
    Does the CLD-702 offer noticibly better performance? I've got an opportunity to get one, and I'd like to know what this forum's experts think. Is it worth the effort?

    It is a better player, but a year older. Maybe you should hold out for a CLD-704 or CLD-79, me thinks. The 702 has a digital output but it predates AC-3. If it's cheap enough, $200 or less, maybe? Best wishes!

    If I remember correctly, the 702 should give you the ability to display still frames on CLV discs. I believe the 503 lacks that capability. Otherwise, I don't think you'll see much of a difference.
