Having a projector with DVI and HD capability, I've been thinking since I bought it about replacing my ageing Pioneer DVD player with a newer unit that can take advantage of DVI. So today, I had a brief dem, thought you chaps might like to see the results: Dem 1. Tosh 340 DVD. I've home dem'd a Tosh DVD player, and know that they're very similar in capability to my existing Pioneer unit. So the Tosh was chosen as a baseline for the test which was run through a Yamaha HD capable Plasma. For the test, the scart output was used. Dem 2. Denon 1910. This is a £180 DVD player (multi-region is extra) and has DVI output with upsampling to the native resolution of my projector. Yes there were improvements, but they really weren't massive. IMO, they weren't enough to justify the cost difference Dem 3. Denon 2910. This is a £500 DVD player with very similar specs to the 1910, so on paper it's not easy to justify the difference in cost. In practice the differences were seriously big. On Gladiator (opening battle sequence), the 2910 added a lot of depth to the movie, along with much improved colour rendition. IMO, this really is worth the cost difference, certainly so on the 1910. Unfortunately I don't have £500, mainly because I'd expected the 1910 to be nearly as good, and was only expecting to end up paying £200. So, another classic learning exercise in showing that a good dem is far more valuable than on paper specs.
