I'm in the market to upgrade my DVD player. I have narrowed my search down by reading as many online reviews as possible, but now my problem is basically to buy a progressive scan machine or a regular player, i think called interlaced, my head is swimming from all the reviews. The issue is that I'm running a CRT projector that I'm doubling with a DVDO Iscan Plus. If I buy a progressive scan machine I will just be turning off the progressive signal and using a standard one. I do not want to eliminate the Iscan because I will lose the doubling for TV and VCR. I could run a separate feed to the projector just for DVD, but not an easy task were it is a finish room and the projector is ceiling mounted. The player's I'm considering are the Pioneer Elite DV-38a Sony DVP-9000es or save some money Pioneer Elite DV-09 Sony DVP-7700 The older machines I would have to buy used which does not bother me. My set up is for video only and I listen to little to no music, therefore the SACD feature of the 9000 is not a huge benefit. So, to buy progressive scan or not, that is the question. If it makes a difference my set up contains Lexicon MC-1 processor Marantz MA-500 monoblocks (X 5) Atlantic Technologies 370THX speakers complete with 372 PBM Infinity BU-1 Sub (secondary) Sony VPH-1272 projector DVDO Iscan Plus Draper Shadow Box Clarion with M1300 screen Monster Power HTS-5000 power conditioner Few more pieces that are not significant to this discussion. Another problem is that I live in a small city and the players above are available through special order only, therefore a home audition would not be available. Anyway, opinions welcomed.
