Is there a great difference in video interlaced (I think this is the right term for non-progressive scan output) output among DVD players? I am pondering the upgrade of my DVD player (Pioneer DV-440), but am not sure if it is worth it or not. Several months ago, I got the $99 Sony DVD player at Bestbuy, but did not notice any difference so I returned it. I use component video jacks. I bought my Pioneer DV-440 for $150 nearly two years ago. I don’t have an HDTV, and don’t plan on getting one within the next 2-3 years, so top-notch Progressive Scan performance is not necessary. My TV is a 27” sony wega. So what I am looking for is recommendations of DVD players with top-notch interlaced video quality and audio quality. From what I understand, audio quality from DVD movies is dependent on your Receiver’s decoding and not the DACs on the DVD player, correct? I know the Pioneer DV-563A is a current fave here, but I don’t own any SACD or DVD-audio discs, and DVD playback does not seem to be its forte. The only DVD player I am considering at the moment is the Harman Kardon DVD-25 for $230 shipped at Jandr. I still can't post links here yet, so, Audioreview of Pioneer DV-440 is 4.44 rating (72 reviews). Audioreview rating of HK DVD-25 is 4.74 rating (11 reviews).
