Nice, well built player. (As are most Denons). Very capable on the picture quality front and many would say better at CD reproduction than later generation Denons. Things to look out for: Sound drop outs over SPDIF.
Still loving mine at the moment. Not prepared to change it until Hi Def DVD arrives. I have tried a budget HDMI player (Samsung 950) to see how the upscaled image compared and I couldn't see much difference to be honest. Prefering to stick with my 2900 for definite!
