    I have decided to get a Z2 projector.
    I also need a new DVD player.
    Is there a preferred DVD player that works nicely with a Z2?
    If not, what are some general suggestions, or things I should be looking for when purchasing a DVD player?

    Larry,

    I have the Studio Experience 2HD, which is based on the PLV-Z2. IMO, Z2 looks best when fed with 720p material, and especially 720p material via DVI.

    Depending on your budget (always a big variable), the Bravo D1 (around US$200) might be worth a serious look. At the higher end, the Denon DVD-5900 (around US$2K) is a superb player. I don't know when Bravo will release the D2 player (around US$250) but that is supposed to cure many of the D1 loader woes.

    Watching ESPN-HD when they are broadcasting true HD material is asonishing when considering the price point. Everything that looks dramatically better is streeting for more than twice the price.

    Good luck with your Z2, I know I'm enjoying the heck out of mine [​IMG]
