Ok, So I have my new tv (Tosh 51H84) and am currently using my roomates JVC progressive scan dvd player. My first and only dvd player was a Proscan PS8675. I bought it for 600 bucks back in 1997 and it is built like a tank. And if it wasn't for the fact that it isn't progressive scan, I'd still be using it. My roommates is ok...but the thing is light as a feather and I know that price was her first option. So now I want to upgrade my dvd player, but really don't want to buy a 99 dollar run of the mill progressive scan player. I would rather spend the bit extra and get something of decent build quality. I would say in the range of 300 - 400 CAD (200 - 300US) dollar range. It will be a dvd only player. No SACD or DVD-A, just DVD. Take into consideration my TV, and that I prefer using optical wire as my audio transfer. The TV is also HDMI, but I'm not sure how that will work with 5.1 system. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
