Just a quick post to say we got our first Arcam DiVA dvd players today. We' just plugged one in to a system comprising Denon AVC1DSE and Snell E5/C5/SR5/PS10 speakers. I compared it to the £1000 Denon DVD-Audio player. Both were feeding the AMP through their digital co-ax outputs so the dacs in each DVD player weren't being used for audio. With the two discs we used, Notting Hill (aint no sunshine) and Big Lebowski (Jesus) the Arcam sounded very obviously better. Music was much more natural and the clarity of speech was better on the Big Lebowski. I was also surprised how much better the picture seemed to look at the beginning of The Big Lebowski scene on the Arcam. The detail on the hand dryer in the bowling alley was much better and we were only running the composite output! I'm off to feed the s-vid out to our Runco projector now and compare its video output to our current reference, the Denon 5000. We'll do a comparison of the component video outputs as soon as we've got our Focus Enhancements Quadscan scaler back from customer loan. Incidentally, the Arcam can output RGB from the Component sockets or from Scart. If using the component sockets you must also use the composite socket for the "sync" signal. I'm going to try feeding my own NEC data projector at home this way at the weekend. More as it happens, Gordon ------------------ StereoStereo Intelligent Solutions for Intelligent Homes !
