    Are the above models any good or do they suffer from disc freezing and macroblocking? :eek:

    I have the 1710 with the MR firmware and I have to say its fantastic.

    Running it through a Denon 3803 to my Panny PW6 in component and it looks the nuts.

    Not had a disc freeze or seen any macroblocking.

    Hasnt failed to play any of my backup discs(even one that I accidentally burnt at 16x :blush:)

    My previous player (a Sony which cost me 400 quid) isnt a patch on the Denon .

    Regards

    Steve

    I have a 1710,

    On component progressive into a LCD it really does the business, no blocking or artifacts and it is a lot on my set up than the 575, which strobes a little (not enough to worry about, but its there)

    Look at the quality of the vidoe DAC in the 1710 its a 12bit device and has a 24 bit audio DAC. Many many more pricer players do not have such quality DACs. The Denon does not have many bells and whistles though.

    I bought it because I am saving for a high quality HDMI player, as I have TV with good de interlacing buying a cheaper HDMI player might degrade my picture. therefor the Denon is turning into a great stop gap...

    I have a 1910 hooked up to a 4805 pj using the DVI connection. Picture quality is superb with no macroblocking or any other problems, its also multiregion.

    I have a 1910 which I connect to pw7 using the component board and the picture is fantastic,:thumbsup:
    Anybody know if the picture would be better using the DVI or HDMI boards ?
    Looking at the lush green scenery in the film , Thin red line i would think the difference would be slight :

    Thanks. This will be my set up, already have the PW7 and an amp. Now convinced 1910 is the way to go DVD wise.....just gotta sort out the best component cables. :)
