BDP Upgrade For DVD Upscaling
I’m toying with the idea of possibly upgrading my current BDP (Sony BDP-S380) to one which – hopefully - may offer better DVD upscaling.
Budget is around the £250 mark and I’ve been heavily researching the usual two suspects - the Sony BDP-S790 and the Panasonic DMP-BDT500. I had been leaning slightly towards the Sony until I came across a review which was claiming that the PS3 offered better upscaling than the 790 which slightly threw a spanner in the works. Not that I’m now looking at a PS3, but it has put a little teaser in my mind as to how good the 790 might actually be with upscaling.
At some point I can probably get to demo the Sony but not the Panasonic, so any thoughts on these or indeed any other players in this price bracket? I’ve also looked at the Pioneer LX-55 but there seems to be a bit of baggage around the brand these days which has slightly put me off. Also to mention is that I’m only interested in a disc spinner, so “Smart” TV functions, wi-fi, etc is not a consideration.
Many thanks for your input.
