    hi all,
    i've noticed that both my 2900 player and 2803 reciever have settings for dynamic range ie late night viewing.
    question is which is the better one to use?
    i'm assuming the amp will give better results(admitting i have'nt tried either yet) but cutting a long story short it would be more convienient for me to swap about on the players menu.any advice would be appreciated.

    The setting in the Player has no effect if the signal being output is digital. You would need to use it's onboard decoding and connect to the Amp via it's 5.1 Analogue Outputs if you wanted to use it. It's pretty easy to adjust the settings on the Amp, you just need to access the Surround Parameters whilst playing a Dolby Digital signal. It can be done via the Front Panel or via the OSD.

    ah ha,
    cheers for that it'll have to be the amp then.its just a pain in the behind that denon omitted the use of OSD through a component lead on the 2803.

    Also it will make no difference to DTS sound tracks.
