    Please Help And Forgive Me If This Comes Out Wrong As First Time User, I Currently Run A Cheap Prog Scan ( Ebay£40) Through A Panasonic Ptae100 Projecter With Sound Via Sony 940 Amp And Take 5.1 Speakers Which Is Only Used To View A Dvd Movie On A Friday Night, I Enjoy Watching A Film Only Once,not Repeat Viewings.
    Whilst Owning 200 Cds Music Performance Is Not Critical.
    My Daytime Viewing Is Skyplus Through Rgb Scart To A 37 Inch Toshiba Crt Television.
    I Want To Improve The Friday Cinema Feeling Which Is Currently Wow With A Reasonable Upgrade And Am Considering Upgrading To A Denon 2910 Dvd To Utilize The Video Upscaling Through My Projecter. Is This The Best Point To Start From Or Should I Be Looking At The Amp/projector Or Speakers???? Please Advise

    I would perhaps consider selling the AE100 and buying an AE700 or Z3 with the money you would have spent on the 2910 and perhaps pick up a DVD player to compliment the PJ Pioneer 575 or a secondhand TOSH/PIO/denon ex high end model
    Or consider something like an Iscan ultra scaler

    better contrast and brighter better connections (HDMI etc ) and i think its a higher res LCD also the chicken wire effect is hardly visible even at short vieing distance on the 700...

    Thanks So You Obviousley Think The Projecter End Not The Dvd Output End Is The Weakest Link, But Is This Still A Best Option For When I Use The Dvd Possibly Thru A Hitachi 42dp5200 During The Week Or Am I Just Making This Equation Complicated...thanks
