thanks expatbrit, sounds like my length of DVI should not be a problem, sounds like the Sammy 941 should be out soon, will be interesting to see if the black crush is an issue. Can you tell me if 4:3 material displays it its native format, or is it stretched to fit the screen like on the Denon 1910, not sure about the 2910.....

sirquack, it will play native 4:3 out of both component and DVI. Is it confirmed that the 941 has the back crush fixed?

There have been a few people over at AVS that have mentioned they believe that issues has been addressed, but I guess only time will tell. I am really anxious to explore one of these players, especially if they work well with my Z2. My OTA High Def receiver looks absolutely fabulous, you should have seen the Olympic volleyball matches, wow.....

I have a momitsu 880 combined with a Sanyo Z2 and love the PQ. I haven't had any problems at all. I bought it back in March and for ME it's a must have for a projector. The images it produces on well mastered DVDs is great and it makes poorly mastered DVD look good too.

Legairre, I have the Bravo D2 (had the D1, also), and like your Momitsu, It has been problem free with GREAT PQ.

BUT! If you go over to the AVS forum, and read the threads about both products, you'd swear they were junk. The people with problems with a given product post their brains out, while those of us who don't just sit back and watch as the product, the company, and anybody who owns one is dismembered piece by piece.

Thus one has to take into consideration that the dissatisfied are going to be more vocal than the satisfied, creating an impression of the product which is seriously, and incorrectly, skewed toward the negative.

I found the same when inquiring about Axioms and my Denon 2805. Axioms are harsh, bright and Denons are mechanical. I don't mind some constructive feedback on possible negatives if the person gives valid points. But biased feedback with nothing to back it up really T's me off. My Axiom/Denon combination is fabulous for all listening.

Legairre, I have read many of your positive posts about the momitsu on AVS, and I appreciate the feedback. I'm really tempted to try one of the 880 deluxe models. I guess the only thing that I hesitate is customer service, if something goes wrong.....

Randy

Ajax,
I read the Momitsu and Bravo review/opinions at AVS for months before I bought mine and just like you decided that the dissatisfied will always be more vocal. People tend to only make noise when they are complaining and stay quiet when something works. If you listen to those reviews you'd never buy anything.

Just like your Bravo my Momitsu hase performed flawlessly. The Momitsu has completely changed the image quality of DVDs for me. DVDs that were hard to watch on my 104" screen are now good, and DVDs that looked good before look fantastic. The Momitsu connected with a DVI cable is the closest thing I've seen to HD thats not HD. It's not HD quality but it sure is close. In the past I would watch HD then switch to a DVD and feel like DVD was really bad. The Momitsu adds depth and detail to the image ALMOST like HD does. Note I said almst. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Legairre,

It's nice to hear good things about these units. I feel the same way about my Bravo D2. The DVI connection definitely makes a difference.

And remember, the Samsung 841 and 941 are some of the few upconverting dvd players that also do SACD and DVD-Audio. Exabrit, Can you comment on bass management and other audio properties of the 841?

But the 841 and 941 have issues with "black crush" where you can't see detail in dark areas.
