    Hi all. I'm back again to fuel my new found addiction having just won an DV89 on ebay for £400 notes :) I'm quite chuffed, although I had mistakenly thought it was the top of the range Diva, (DV79 on the current Arcam site)...

    How does the DV89 compare to the DV79 in terms of quality and features/spec? As for styling is it going to match my A90/P90, both of which are on the Arcam site?

    Thanks!

    If you do a forum search for 'dv79 dv89' you'll get a good few threads that offer comparisons of the two.

    AFAIK, the 89 looks the same as the 79 and the 79 is certainly a visual match for the P90 (IMHO Arcam gear is amongst the best looking I've ever seen)

    HTH

    I did a search, couldn't find much info really. All a bit vague!

    Cheers read everything now. Don't think there is a lot between them, other than DVDA and HDMI, neither of which I will need. 400 quid for an originally priced 1300 quid dvd player has to be a bargain...

    However in terms of support I'm a bit stuck, does anyone have the pdf manual?? It isn't an the Arcam site!
