hi, i'm planning on getting dvd player soon and have heard good things about the DV-525, especially in the forums. i also heard that the DV-333 is going to replace the DV-525 in pioneer's product line. is the 333 much improved over the 525? also does the 333 have all the features of the 525? i wondered because the list price of the 525 is $425 while the 333's list price is only $299...

My advice is to wait a few weeks. Pioneer is releasing the DV-434 which is a progressive scan player and it will be going for around $299 with discounts. It's MSRP is around $450. That is an awsome deal for a progressive scan player. I am planning on picking one of these bad boys up for so cheap.

Progressive scan is great, especially if you have a TV that can use it.

The 333 is a better choice than the 525: same picture quality, better scans (i.e less crappy), quieter disk playback.

Waiting is a VERY good idea. Prices for both the 434 and 333 will go down.

BTW, the prices you list seem high: I've seen the 525 go for around $200 and the 333 for $250.

yeah i've seen them both for around $200-240, those were just the prices pioneer listed on their page. I was wondering why the 333, being the replacement for the 525, would have a lot lower MSRP.

Don't bother with a progressive player unless you have a progressive ready TV to take advantage of it... the minuscule (if that) increase in image quality on an analog TV is not worth the money.
