After reading a number of the posts on the board, I've settled on getting a Pioneer 563a based on how highly recommended it seems to be. Its got pretty all the features I really want (DVD-A, SACD...) and its more than reasonably priced. It should work well with the HK AVR 230 receiver I also plan on getting very soon.

Looking online for places that still sell this Pioneer player I stumbled across this website:

It looks like you get a modded 563 that can play any region and format for around 250$ with shipping. Is this overpriced or worthwhile? I couldn't find any mention of this on the message boards so I thought I'd see what your collective thoughts were.

unless you want to copy movies on vcr tapes or use pal movies on ntsc.

i would not pay the extra for it.

if the unit was modded with better quality audio in mind i would not
consider a modded unit.

just my 2cents

hrmmm... so does the 563 not play PAL?

I was mainly interested in the mod so I could play dvds from any region. I've also got a few PAL music DVDs that are region 0, but won't play on most American DVD players because they aren't NTSC.

would an unmodded 563 be able to play these dvds?
