Hello,
i own a av500 and was thinking of getting the 504 but my may main concern can you tell me if the screen is dark when its off like the av500 because i have tried a few newer archos players but the screens dont show a good contrast like the av500 and they are also grainy despite the so called higher resolution.

I have both and frankly I like the 500 screen more, sharper, more contrast, and blacker blacks.

The 504 is 160GB and full of uncompressed wave files of my cds for playback through an external D/A into the hi-fi so screen does not matter so much since I don't watch movies on it.
