I am considering the two Marantz options for a new BR player. I lean toward Marantz since it will match up with so much of my other gear. The choices are a BD8002 (which has a video DAC of 297 Mhz/12 bit) and a BD7003 (which has a video DAC of 150 Mhz/12bit).
There is a huge difference in price, but I am looking to replace my Samsung in my main viewing area and want top notch quality, and the ability to decode the HD codecs.
Is there going to be a difference in PQ based on the video DAC?
Should I be considering other players?
