    Thanks Leon, its making me even more impatient for the one I have ordered. I was told it would possibly come before Xmas. I was going to combine the DV139 with my P8/P7 and two P1's (I am just waiting for as well) biamping my 805s to give me a n upgraded christmas present. But alas I think I will disappointed! So your pictures may be the only thing that keeps my cockles warm. By the way having had it a while longer than the rest of us, has it disappointed in any way??

    I see a Pioneer Dv-868, too. Have you compared the performance of the two players?

    I'm especially interested in audio; how much the Arcam bettered the Pioneer? A lot, i guess, could you give some examples (like Cd's Dvd-Audio or Sacd songs played by both)?

    i would go as far as saying the sound is 80% better and the picture is 70% as for cd and sacd i have never heard a player like this .. i have had around 30 dvd player since i started getting into av in 1998 and if i was to put a price on the dvd player i would pay £3000.00 for it and thought i still had a bargain .....

    With the caveats that screen shots have very limited use, as well as the fact I'm struggling to get used to a new camera, here are a couple just for fun :)

    Looks like 7 phono connections for 5.1 and stereo so do you really need 7 cables or is the stereo pair spare. I was assuming -

    1 x coax dig for DVD
    5 x analogue interconnects for CD/SACD/DVD-A

    Thanks.

    You need 7 as the CD section is separate to the SACD/DVDA section :)

    You do not need to use the steeo only outputs as well as the 5.1 channel outputs. If you playback a stereo only source you will get stereo nly out of the front left and right outputs which are part of the multi-channel outputs.

    You only need to use the stereo only outputs if you want to feed an always downsampled stereo signal to a separate stereo system.

    Umm, don't like backlit remote myself - but that won't affect my desire in having the player. The layout of the remote looks very similar to the one from DV88 which I have.
