    Hi there,
    Which of these 2 older dvd players outputs the best component picture please? They are both bargains, i presume the Arcam will be better sounding in 2 channel stereo but multichannel and picture are my priority.

    Hi there,

    Just wanted to reply to ur post and say that:

    The denon is very nice, seen it about a 3 grand setup at an audio shop, well nice, but as i own an dv88 i am gonna have to say that its the nads! well cos i own 1 lol

    I can give u more info towards the arcam naturally!

    I verry fast when playing, extreme fast forward and revers speed! 20x!!
    Its not noisy really, cool even after enduring use!
    GUI is a bit poo, simple but effective & again the remote lets it down slightly, but the sound quality is astonishing, supports DTS, Lord of the Rings Wipps on this player! i know its not dts es, but it 5.1 dts its great 4 ur money!!

    Again picture is extremley sharp!!

    My Setup:

    Arcam dv88 dvd player
    Arcam avr200
    Yamaha Sub cant member model, £450
    B&W 600 series speakers throughout
    qued scarts n cables, total price 4 cables etc nearly £250.

    It does well 4 me, hope i was any help!

    Possibly Hifi-plus. They are doing that deal at the moment. I bought one myself.
