I've noticed that Panasonic just released its new line of dvd players this February. Does anyone know which months some other companies generally release their new lines? I'm specifically looking at Sony and JVC. I'm looking for a new multi-disc dvd player and I'd prefer the newest models. On a slightly related note. The panasonic dvd-f87 does not have very good picture quality. It's surprising for such a fine player, but the colors are rather washed out using s-video or component.
