I've spent a good week or so researching various progressive scan DVD players, and I think I have settled on the Denon 1600. The question I have relates to the TV I have which is the Sony 36" XBR400. I currently have an old Sony model 330 player hooked up via S-video. It's a pretty basic player, but it's been rock solid for several years. As I've become more immersed in home theater hardware, I've noticed that on every DVD that I watch, I get a halo effect around any text that appears on screen. Usually when you see cast and title text at the beginning of movies. It's not nearly as noticeable around people and objects, but I can see the halos as well particularly when there is a contrast of dark objects against a light background, and vice versa. While the picture in general is pretty good, this haloing effect, particularly around text, is really bothersome. Can anyone offer any insight as to whether or not this a condition of the player, the TV, or both? My suspicion is that this is a problem with the DVD player, hence my interest in getting a progressive scan player to try an eliminate the halo effect. The TV would not by my first inclination because the halo effect seems to vary from DVD to DVD, with on-screen text being the only consistent issue regardless. Any advice from anyone would be most appreciated before I drop $400 on the Denon 1600. Thanks!
