Have just managed to bag me a Denon from Richer sounds (price match) - I would post a review but am getting disillusioned with AV equipment at the moment... Bear in mind i'm upgrading from an Toshiba SD 350 (present). I'll say one thing in terms of picture quality - there is hardly any difference between the two (720/1080)- the Denon might edge it but not enough for the price difference. p.s Both machines, excellent picture quality - I guess curiosity got the better of me)! Now my two main gripes with this machine which really get on my tits, and bemuses me that you can spend a little more money and still have too put up with what are fundamental flaws in my opininon: a. The noise levels this machine makes during playback - not high enough to warrant sending it back but distracting enough if there is a really quiet scence in a DVD passage. (for all those going huh, turn your tv down and listen carefully - listen to that Denon whine) b. This pause, stop resume bo***ks - totally unforgivable - I mean the player wont switch on if you get it wrong (check other posts for detailed explanation/cant be ars**ed) - have to reset at mains. Denon you better release a firmware to correct point B. Unforgivable IMHO (although if you look in the manual Denon has the cheek to write words along these lines -Troubleshooting "If machine wont turn on please reset at mains) hmmm, firmware upgrade not likely. Point a I realise is a characteristic of machine no doubt. Toshiba down points as we know - Blue light, Ugly design, dodgy HDMI (720). Denon down points as we know - Wont turn on, wont turn on wont turn on, noisy! Just want to let people know what there letting themselves into.
