I've been reading up, but can't seem to find a definite answer, lots of info comparing to Pioneer etc.. but not a lot between the two Denons. I'm looking at buying one of the above, can afford to get the 2900 right now, or wait until after xmas and go for the 3910, but as I won't be using any of the digital video connections or the Denon link is there any real benefit to getting the newer machine? I'd rather spend £400 less and put it towards my next upgrade, but would like which ever player I get to last me a few years. I also want to use it as a CD player if that makes much difference. I know both will be a massive improvement over my 5 year old Pioneer, and will be demoing both if I can (no AV dealers where I live though ), just wondered what people who have used both players think. Thanks in advance.
