    Has anyone done a side by side demonstration on these players?
    What's the cd playback like, are there any glitches with the 3800?
    I had a Denon 2800 a while ago and had a lot of problems with it. Have Denon come good with the 3800?
    regards,

    Got a Denon 3800 myself after listening to the Primare. Not much in it to be honest but the Denon just pipped it for me having the DVD-A and it goes with my AVC10SE. CD reply in awsome though. it's just won the HI-FI Choice Award for best Luxery player.

    Check out this months issue. :D

    GM,

    Search the forum for issues on the 3800 up to now. There have also been a lot of threads on multiregion and performance etc.

    Allegedly, Denon are a few weeks away from having a final firmware release which *should* solve all the possible issues...see the threads with discussions between myself and markbuffyfan

    A lot of people like the 3800 but you may need to demo against other players to be 100%

    Cheers

    JJ

    Thanks for the replies.
    I'm thinking about a Denon 11sr & 3800 or Primare spa20 & v25,
    or a Cyrus AV8/power amps & DVD 7+.
    Are these combos that good on cd replay performance that a separate cd player and stereo amp aren't required?
    Has anybody else gone from a 4 box set up,cd player/ stereo amp/ dvd player/ a/v amp to just an a/v amp/ dvd player are you happy with performance?
    regards,
    G.M.
