Havn't seen much activity in historical post so I thought I'd start a new thread. I'm now on my second Arcam DV88. My original DV88 was with my supplier for 4 months while I awaited it's repair. The dealer was good enough however to compensate me for the excessive delay by providing me with a brand new DV88P which I was originally thrilled with! BUT Then came the problems. From day one I have experienced audio signal dropouts from every possible source...DD 5.1, DTS, CD etc. These dropouts are impossible to replicate. Sometimes you'll get halfway through a movie and then get one and sometimes it'll start dropping the signal within the first 5 minutes. I've just spent 15 minutes on the phone with Arcam customer support who where surprised I was getting these problems across all platforms and suggested a firmware upgrade would resolve some but not all problems. I know I'm not alone, but I think it's disgusting that my high end DVD player is outclassed on an audio front by my xbox, PS2 and crappy old Sony player. High end equipment should be just that. These sorts of problems are inexcusable in my mind.
