Re: Absolute best source?
First off Great name dude!!!
Nice system BTW! My brother has the KSA-250s, awesome amp.
While there is a player that does both (LG) it is $1199 retail and though I've not had it to play with, I hear rumors it is really a one format player that can spin the other, but not very well, add the cost and you could buy one player for each format for the same price and have added flexibility.
As for the upgrade, I did it when the DV-50 was brand new to this country and a scaled (WOW to 480p??) video output was a big deal and as I had a DLP RPTV, I wanted the DVI-D out. FF a few years, the 's' upgrade is almost worthless, but for a few years I did have better video....
