Hi All, I posted here a couple of months ago about problems I had with two successive Dendn DVD-2910s, which suffered from picture and sound breakup on certain DVD-Vs, problems reading the CD layer on SACDs and problems with various DVD-R and DVD-RW discs. Denon UK have finally responded about this, and have loaned me a DVD-3910 to see if it rectifies the problems. It certainly does better at reading DVD-Vs, but... It exhibits exactly the same problems with the CD layer on SACDs as the two 2910s I had did. If you set it to use the CD layer, put an SACD in the drawer and hit play, the disc loads, the machine thinks for a bit and then identifies it as CDDA and plays...most of the time. But about 1 time in 5 that you try this, it fails to read the CD layer - it takes 30 seconds or so to load before flashing up a message on the TV about "INVALID ENTRY". The screen on the player shows the length of the loaded disc, but pressing play has no effect. This happens on several discs, which are perfectly clean and undamaged. Did Denon never test this functionality? The more I use their players - which are by no means cheap - the more I get the impression that their transport mechanisms are utter junk. None of these Denons have been able to play DVD+RW discs that played fine in my old Pioneer 656 and my Panasonic portable. Really beginning to regret my purchase - can anyone recommend another manufacturer who make a DVD-V / DVD-A / SACD player with HDCD decoding. The only players I can find with HDCD for under £1000 are the Denons, and I'm on the verge of handing them back to the dealer for a refund.
