progressive scan confusion
« on: June 05, 2002, 10:51 »
hi

i'm thinking about buying a jvc 34pro progressive scan tv, but am confused about what dvd player to buy in order to enjoy that facility.  my favorite choice is the sony dvd ns700, which also has sacd and both decoders, but i'm not sure whether it supports the progressive scan thing.  the other choice i suppose will be the toshiba 5300, but that doesn't have sacd and dts decoder.  

does anyone know whether the sony can work the progressive scan thing?  thanks.

Sony DVD-NS700 does not have progressive scan capability. Check out the specs here:

You would have to get the NS900 if you must buy a Sony with SACD and progressive scan.
