YOu can probably tell from the DVD players that I chose, that I really don't know much about video!! I have a 27" Sony Wega (non-HD) TV, Denon 1803 receiver, and the assorted speakers. I am looking to replace my Apex 703 (don't laugh) DVD player. I am just looking for an affordable 5 disc DVD player for some movies and music. DVD-A isn't a necessary thing, but I would like to get a progressive scan player (seems like they all are now) for when I get a better TV in the future. The two I listed above seem fine to my uneducated eyes/ears, but I wanted to get the professionals opinions!! The only difference I can see is that the Panasonic uses a 54MHz/10-bit video D/A converter and the sony uses a 108MHz/12-bit video digital-to-analog (D/A) conversion. I also looked at the Yamaha C750 and it used the same as the Sony. Is it necessary to get the better Vid processor? Any ideas or suggestion would be welcome givem my $100-$150 budget! Thanks in advance, sorry for such a newbie and general post!!!
