    I am very new to the home cinema world and am a bit confused on which dvd player to go for :confused: I have about £800 of my budget to blow on it, but as you all know there are so many out there to choose from.
    I was really impressed with Denons 3800 which would go well with my choice of 3803 receiver, then along came a demo of a Yamaha but unfortunatly have forgotten unit code:suicide:
    Has anybody got any views on what is good for this amount of money. It needs to be multi-region and am not sure if Denon is as keep forgetting to ask...

    Hifi junkies sell the 3800 for £759. I've got a late build one & it doesn't display any of the problems that earlier versions (according to previous users here) did.

    They are hard to find now but the 2900 should be out here soon.

    My DVD-3800 works perfectly too. :)
    If that's your fancy don't be afraid to buy and try.

    Is the 3800 compatible with all region dvd's?, and are there any other makes I should be looking at?

    The dealer you choose should be able to multi region & PAL progressive update your Denon 3800 before they supply it.

    If not you can get the firmware update & do it yourself at The Denon DVD-3800 unofficial website

    Other players upto this price bracket that seem popular here are the Pioneer 757 , Philips 963SA & Arcam DV88+ (which is a bit above your £800 budget). Just do searches on them to see what I mean.
