I've had an Arcam DV27A for a couple of weeks now and watched 10-15 films but haven't been altogether thrilled with the picture! I was wondering if, like with some other bits of kit, it will noticeably improve with time? I had some members of my family round today so gave them a demo using 'Fellowship of the Ring' and 'Happy Gilmore' and with both films they all thought my Denon 2900 looked better! I can't understand how a "£1900" machine that is raved about by everyone can be beaten by an "£800" machine in terms of picture! I would like to believe I have a faulty machine but there's nothing obviously wrong with the picture, it just doesn't look as good! Could the rest of my kit have anything to do with it or maybe my cables are better suited to the Denon? Everything except my processor is Arcam so I would like to keep the dvd player but not at the expense of picture quality! I'd very much like to hear peoples thoughts on this as my Denon is leaving me at the end of the week and I'm feeling a little gutted!
