    Hello

    I have just bought an AVC-A1SRA and am now looking at a new DVD player, possibly a 3910 and was wondering if the amp accepted SACD over the denon link connection, some of the tech specs I have read say it is 3rd edition but I could have sworn when I was wiring it up it said 'Denon Link S.E.' on the back.

    Cheers

    Chris

    As part of the upgrade procedure, the Denon link socket is relabled. The A1SRA is upgradeable to 3rd but needs to be sent back.

    If it's the "A" Spec then it should already have Denon Link 3 (as well as PLIIx and HDCD).

    Hello

    Definately an 'A' spec as it does PLIIx and HDCD, It was also bought new as an A spec, not an upgraded 'SR' but i'm sure it said it was only second edition on the back. I will have to do some research.

    Cheers

    It should already be enabled then. It would be a bit strange if it isn't as Denon Link 3, PLIIx and HDCD were all part of the same upgrade package.

    buy the player, if it doesnt work then get it upgraded, its supposed to have it already, if it hasnt then you've been diddled on the amp by the dealer...lol

    (it doesnt say Dehnon on the badge does it?..heh, i remember the articles a few years ago about Dehnon, Pionaar and my favourite, Pantasonic.....backward engineered copies from china...lol)

    Any new 3910 being sold should have had the Denon Link 3 update done at the factory. That's probably an old picture. Even if you were to get an older model with Denon Link S.E. you can get the Denon Link 3 firmware on this Forum. :)
