    I am sure I am not the only one who has found the display of 8 characters on MP3 titles absolutely useless. What on earth were Denon thinking off. I can't work out the title of any tracks without writing them down from the laptop first!

    From previous experience is this something that might get improved with a firmware upgrade. Are there any firmware upgrades for the 2900 yet that anyone knows about, if so what are they improving?

    I asked about firmware last time I spoke to my dealer, unfortunately he doesn't carry Denon any longer.

    It seems the 2900 is a little better supported in the US.

    Why would you want to play MP3s via such a beast anyway !!

    Don't get me wrong MP3s have their place but I guess you've got your 2900 connected to a fairly decent amp and then some decent speakers it just dosen't add up to me.

    BTW I have never tried MP3s on my 2900 so they might sound okay it just seems odd to me.

    Cheers, Lee

    Yes I do have the 2900 linked to a pretty good setup. Most of the time I play 'proper' CD's, but I also like to try some before I buy, so do have a few MP3's from my laptop as well. They sound pretty crap on the laptop and whilst I agree the sound is nowhere near the quality of a proper CD, they sound infinitely better on the 2900 than my laptop. I just can't see the full titles on the TV monitor becuase of the 8 character limitation.

    Ah well, maybe they might change this with a firmware upgrade one day.
