The Arcam also does 576i through HDMI, so if you are ever in the market for a video processor this is a better option.Crustyloafer said:CD Quality: No contest, the Arcam outperforms the Denon in every way
Picture quality: Both very good, the Denon is possibly slightly more natural but the Arcam has much more vibrant colours which to me are more exciting to watch. You could argue though that the Arcam is doing it right and the Denon just looks washed out. The Arcam definitely has a sharper picture and better edge definition too.
I thought Crusty said the opposite and comparing the Arcam models to other DVD players I'd say the same as Crusty.rimibar said:I agree with the above comments on the 3910 producing a more "vibrant" image, but for accuracy the DV79 clinched it for me.
Maybe conflicting use.rimibar said:Hope this is of some use
Hi Nic,Nic Rhodes said:I think there are other problems with the Denon re deinterlacing, I would say the Arcam wins on both accounts, and with some ease in the important areas for me. The Arcam picture 'pops' whilst the Denon is much more washed out. Don't like the Arcam remote though...
My solution exactly: TAG for 5.1 audio and red book and the 2910 through HDMI for movies and SACD. But, from what I tested, there is a difference in performance (for 5.1 movies) between the 2910 and, for example, the Arcam DV27A, audio wise. Therefore, I'd very much like to have a DV29 MkII or DV79 MkII with better deinterlacing. That would be, IMHO, perfect in every sense.RumNYC said:Do what I did--Get the Denon 2910 and The Arcam CD73!
