First time poster here. Thanks for allowing me on. I was trying to decide between a new panasonic dvd rp82 which does not come out until possibly July here in Canada and a Toshiba sd5700 which has both dvd-audio and hdcd. Is Hdcd such a big deal on a player? Is there a quite a difference and is it that desirable, hdcd I mean? I tried out an early model panasonic progressive player and was amazed by just the difference it made in audio and video over my 4 year old Pioneer player. I'm not sure if I can wait till the new panasonic comes out in July because I'm looking to upgrade both tv and dvd player now in the next couple of weeks. Should I hold out or is this Toshiba just as good? Help!!
