Progressive Scan or player aesthetics?

    I recently purchased a Yamaha DSP-A1 Integrated Amplifier and it's somewhat odd with it's gold color and dark wood side panels.



    Now for a DVD player I would really like one to match the DSP-A1.

    The options I have seen are..

    JVC - Low End Progressive Scan - Cheap under $200
    Panasonic - Semi-pro Progressive Scan DVD-RP91 under $400
    Yamaha - DVD-C900 Interlaced Perfect Match under $200

    I have a 65" Toshiba and I'd really like to keep progressive scan, but will the Yamaha be so much less of a picture that it'll be unbearable to watch? It really sucks that I have no local shops with the Pana or Yamaha (discontinued) to compare.

    Thoughts if you were making this purchase?

    No brainer: RP-91. Why needlessly compromise on the player when the rest of your electronics are high-quality?

    Very, very much what Neil said, Tommy. Video performance is much more important than some aesthetic consideration.
