    OK, I am fairly new to this HT stuff, I just bought a 61"HDTV and now I am going to need a progressive scan dvd player. My local store has a Toshiba 3800 for $139, Toshiba 4800 for $199, and a Panasonic ??62 for $179. I have done some searches but cannot find out exactly what this DVD-A is. Is it worth the extra $ for the 4800? I do not listen to music cd's very often, mainly just radio stations and watching movies. I have an older Onkyo (575 I think) 5.1 reciever if that makes any difference.

    And I quote from the HTF Primer for Home Theater Newcomers.

    check out the jan 03 issue of sght. there's a decent article that covers the dvd-a / sacd format war.
