OK, last night I finally sat down to do some CD listening on my new ($349 from the Crutchfield outlet) 2900.
It would not play any RBCD's.
Played SACD, DVD & DVD-A just fine.
Made sure it was set to Stereo, and plain CD.
It would cycle through the loading sequence several times, and then display "No Play".
I tried about 10 different CD's, some old, a couple that have only been played once or twice.
Did I get a lemon?

a bit more info, not sure if it has anything to do with anything-
The progressive scan text is on on the front panel display, and I have searched through the menu and do not see somewhere to turn it off for CD playback-
Tried burning the update disc from the Denon site, but that would not load either.
Argh!

If it's not even recognizing a CD, yes, I'd say you have a defective unit.

If you have a "lens cleaner" disc it could be worth trying on the off-chance that some large (millimeter-sized) hunk of packaging material isn't sitting on the lens. Otherwise, I'd send it back.

Good Luck!

After seeing all the info on the issues you had getting everything connected, I'm just wondering if it is a connection or setting that is the issue.

Second that. I thought you said earlier that you were able to get 2 channel playing through the 5.1 analog connections and picking multi-channel inputs -- was that a CD or something else ?

I still think the CD out is either going to go over the digital link or separate analog outputs, not the 6 channel analog, but then again I do *not* have a 2900 (yet ).

My guess is that your player is working fine but you need to tell your receiver to look somewhere else for the signal.

In reply to:

This can't be a hookup issue, can it?

The player isn't even recognizing the disc.

TjB,

Mark brings up a good point.

You might 1) call Denon, 2) search the net to see if there is a similar issue and a fix and 3) call Crutchfield.

It would be a shame if you needed to return the thing for another. If so, I'd absolutely pound on Crutchfield for a "same price/even exchange" replacement. Aside from "parts missing", they do guarantee it will play. Would also be worthwhile to have Denon repair it.

Given the (usual) quality of the unit and the unbelieveable price you paid for it. It is worthwhile to try and figure out how to keep it or get it fixed/replaced. Worst case - keep it for the movies, DVD-A and SACD.
