    A dealer has mentioned that some Deno stuff may be released in a silver finish. Does anyone know any more? I'd really like a 3803 and 2900 in silver.

    Cheers

    I've heard rumours about this too, although I haven't read anything official yet.

    Perhaps somebody else can confirm it?

    I believe Marantz have released the new 8400 DVD in black or silver, a departure from black or gold. Maybe Denon are following suite. It certainly put me off buying Denon kit as it's difficult to match with other makes of VCR/ Sky box/ Tape decks etc.

    I do have a black 1603 in my office though but I reckon silver would increase sales. I understand that many people prefer the gold.

    Marantz will be doing three colours for a short while (gold, silver and black) before concentrating on black and silver- note the PM17/CD17 KI Sig already are only in silver. This will allow existing owners some continuity before gold is dropped. This is all first hand from a senior member of Marantx Gmbh. As for Denon, I have no idea what they're up to unfortunately.

    I wonder if anyone from Denon is a watcher/registered user of these forums and would be able to comment. I know some manufacturers do (e.g. Kef). Come on Denon there is a demand. I may be forced to buy a Pioneer 2011 as 'er indoors likes silver:D
    BUT I won't as it hasn't got an audio delay!!

    Cheers

    I would like to think that a silver model would be sold along side the others so that consumers (that's us) have a choice!

    Oh well fingers crossed

    Dave

    p.s. if they don't release one soon can anyone recommend a good silver paint:D Maybe we could have a silver paint shootout.

    The new 1404, 1604 and 1804 will be available in silver. But it also seems that 2803 and 3803 will be released in silver. (I guess that means we'll have to wait a while for the 3804 :( )

    I had a look (thanks for the link). I don't think they know! It says silver in one place, gold in another. I would guess the silver reference is a typo:confused: I hope it isn't. now I need a 2900 DVD in silver!

    Cheers

    Thank you Weiman, you have made me a very happy man. Denon Germany actually list the 3803 and 2900 in black, gold and silver which I'm sure will please lots of people.

    Well done

    Dave

    Good news for those who are interested, I emailed Denon for a definitive answer. They replied very quickly and said:-

    "We are hoping that we will receive the AVR-3803 and the DVD-2900 in the silver finish towards the end of September all being well.

    Best regards
    Denon Support "


    Yipee
