Do you live in SE Asia too? I'm guessing you don't.
But you may be aware that they have lots of brands over there that we don't have here; plus, because of the prevalence of VCD and imports, I believe quite a few of the players are multi-region and more flexible than those available in the US. (My wife is from Malaysia.)
It might be best just to send them money to buy a player with the features they would want.

You might see if that guy's email is still active. He could have some ideas too.

yes sir, i live in chicago, but my family lives in jakarta, capital of indonesia.

they dont know what they want. my family is full of "joe six pack". they dont know what a 12g wire is, or what progressive scan is.

i will stay there for a month ( december ), and i would hate it if there is no small home theater around. i mean, my dad bought a new house, and he told me to rock the house with a home theater. he was spoiled with mine when he paid us a visit last december.

i have tried google to find spec on each one of them.
they are old players, from 1997 - 1998.
some of them dont have component output, no dts...which turned me off.
well i guess i would just buy a playstation2 and mod chip it to play all region dvd ( is this even remotely possible??? )
