    Now that denon have released there Denon Link 3 amps (Just got me a 3805, very nice it is too), does anyone know when Denon Link 3 compatible players will be released?
    Am I right in thinking only Denon players are compatible with denon link (unlike Pioneers i-link)?
    Am I also right in thinking that Denon-link 2 only passed PCM and unencrypted DVD-A and SACD through it (so almost no compatible DVD-A or SACD's then!)?

    thanks

    Just seen a Denon 5900 on american sites. Looks lovely. But very expensive. Also looks like they are initially only releasing it with Denon-Link Se which will be upgradable to 3rd once the SACD standard has been agreed. Anyone know if they are planning on releasing cheaper models with the denon-Link 3rd in the near future?

    There's talk (on avs) of its successor , the 5910 (I think) having HDMI, DVI and Denon Link - that may be 3rd gen. but it's too early to tell yet.

    I wonder if av-pre/pro manufacturers are holding off digital links waiting for the HDMI 2 standard, which would be able to carry audio too?

    A single digital cable for all , nice.
    All AV equipment interconnected using an ultrawideband wireless signal, nicer! (sorry, was daydreaming for a moment). :smashin:

    Talking about the 5910 already. I thought the 5900 is pretty new!? No news of a revamp of the 2900 by any chance (but with denon link!).
    Now a single cable for all av needs would be lovely, but what would manufacturers fleece us over then?

    Thanks for the link HouseofMu. Just what I was looking for. :smashin:
    Bit Worried though that they have an AV Amp (3805) retailing at 1k that has Denon link, yet the cheapest DVD player with Denon-Link will be 1.2k. Something doesn't quite add up there! :confused:
