Hi I am also thinking of upgrading my dvd to get better sound quality. I too was thinking about the denon 1920 since it has dvd audio and sacd but the 1920 doesnt have any hdcd decoding. Is hdcd decoding a neccessary option if your reciever has it? The denon 2910 has all three audio formats but cost almost double. Thanks

My understanding is that if you route digital (coax or optical) signal into the receiver then the receiver will take care of HDCD decoding. If you are using analog connections then the decoding is done by the CD / DVD player.

I currently have the Denon 2900, but I am considering upgrading to a HDMI player to compliment my new H78DC3. I am going to get either the PAN 97S or the OPPO.

I'm buying a new DVD player tomorrow - the cheapest PS player BestBuy has.

What do you do with a malfunctioning $400 Chinese Denon DVD player (model POS)? Goodwill? Burn someone on eBay? Recommendations welcome.

Take to it with a screwdriver with your son and show him what the guts of electronic gadgets look like. Be sure to put all your screwrivers out of reach after you do it, though.

$40 for a new single slot Toshiba DVD player. Wow.

Picture seems a little darker, but it works when I need it to.

When it's time for a new 65" DLP, I'll buy a decent DVD player, I reckon.
