Just brought the 32" home last night for around $700. Was wondering what you all thought would be a good DVD player to purchase (no more than $400) to use with this set. I have a couple ideas but admittedly I'm not the best judge of quality with DVD players.

Thanks in advance for your insight and recommendations.

I own a WEGA, and I have the Toshiba SD2200. I really like the quality of the player (especially now that I have it hooked-up via component input) as well as the nice zoom function it has. I've been hearing a lot of talk about problems with the Toshiba firmware, but I have yet to encounter any problems with mine. Since you don't have progressive scan component inputs, I don't really see the need to go with a progressive scan DVD player.

Good luck.

I too have a Wega and am looking for dvd players for it. Take a look at the Sony DVP-S570D. It has built in dts and DD decoders, and it matches the wega. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/smile.gif I found it online for $329.

I also have the 32 in wega, and i have a sony dvd player. I would recomend sony, because i like it, and their compatibility. Whatever you choose, get component video, it looks good

Can someone explain the difference between all the different WEGA models? There seem to be dozens...

You don't need to go with the S570D unless your receiver does not have the capability to decode DD/DTS but is DD/DTS ready.

If your receiver is able to decode DD/DTS then you might want to look at the Sony S360. 800.com has it for $249. With MSN Passport discount, 800.com discount coupon you can get it for less then $200. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/smile.gif http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Question, how'd you pull home a 32 inch wega for $700? And I don't want to hear about coupon business etc, what store gives you that deal?

I was wondering who'd ask me that http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/wink.gif

My wife and I went into a B&M to purchase a 36" Toshiba for around $600. Of course, they did not have anymore of that model instock, so he offered to meet us halfway on a $900 Toshiba 36". I then asked him if he'd do the same on the 32" Wega and he reluctantly agreed.

Now I have the cost down to $750.
Throw in the 10% coupon I had and we're under $700 before taxes. AND they included a free TV stand as well.

By the way, THANKS to all that made recommendations. It's either a Sony or Pioneer for us.
