    Richer Sounds list it at £899.95. It's an 'in-store only' job, so you'd have to ring your nearest store for stock details.

    Not sure if it's the '+' model. You'd have to give them a call to check. Have just been on a forum with another member from your part of the world. Apparently the Edinburgh branch people are contactable, despite the problems with the fire. They seem to be on good terms with the Glasgow branch as well, and I'm sure they would be more than willing to help you out when a purchase of this value is on the cards ;)

    Just bought one (yesterday) from Creative Audio in Shrewsbury for £900.
    I originally bought a Denon 2800MKII but had horrible lip sync and chroma bug problems. Creative Audio have had it back off me two weeks later and allowed me to upgrade for the DV88plus.
    Its a fantastic player, i am over the moon with the PAL progressive scan picture on my Panny TH42PW4 plasma, and no lipsync or chroma issues. Far better picture & sound!
    Good luck!!

    Heres the link!

    Thanks all so far.

    I have seen people talking about this 'chroma' bug issue, does anyone have a link to a site with more info on what this is, just curious:)

    Looks like £900 is the cheapest.

    do a search, think it was mentioned a while ago with regard to the denon players and there was a picture of the toy story logo which shows this problem up.
    don't know what the problem is but it shows itself with bright colours, particularly reds, through colour bleeds.
