    Dear John D.

    Now that the AV8 and P7 are out, what I think we really need is a circa £2.5 - £3k Arcam flagship DVD Player to go with them.

    The DV27 is great, but having spent £5.5K on amplification, it would be nice to have a cracking player to match.

    There is a big gap in the market at this price point.

    Any comments ?

    Regards

    Tom.

    Hi Steve,

    Nice player, but I meant more from the Arcam brand to match the pre-power combo visually.

    Regards

    Tom.

    I'm sure Mr Dawson will say that the DV27 will compete with a 2 & a half grand machine.

    I like the DV27...It's a real cool piece of kit.

    If it wasn't for the Meridian 596......i would've probably gone with the DV27

    It does compete with the DVDA1. In many respects, the picture is better: sharper, punchier.

    They need to sort the chroma error out on the DV27 though...

    Regards.

    cant complain here about my fmj27, although i might if I had to pay 2500, perhaps the question you should be asking john is can you make the amp cheaper , not the dvd dearer
    I pitted the dv27 against the cyrus , denon and toshiba (well had to throw a curve ball in there) and also the arcam dv88, fmj27 won hands down.
    With the competition in amps now being so high surely the best way for manufacturers to gain our loyalty would be to bring prices down.
    The wife would be far more willing for me to go out and make that rash spending then
