    In a nutshell, it's sound has a rather dark overall balance counterpointed by a tizzy 'MP3-like' high treble and generally thwarted by a failure to communicate or connect with the listener...It was, as one listener suggested, 'like going to a French Restaurant and being served chicken nuggets'.

    Mmmm, maybe I should buy a Pioneer 868i instead.

    They must've had nuggets in their ears...
    I for me prefer the 3910 overall sound quality over the 868.
    Much warmer.
    Stereo is also good, but still not as good as my Arcam cd player.
    Just my 10 Eurocents!

    Ever tried 'em with spicy peanut sauce?
    We call that Sateh (Indonesian shish kebab).
    So nice!

    Its funny but some so called experts in the usa realy praise the 3910s audio ability, considering its price point. To me it is one of the best sounding decks ive owned only been ousted by the A11(only just). 868 was ok but not great. still i like the look of the onkyo DP1000, very nice silver finish, and evidently a blistering performer.

    (i do use the i-link for audio so its more based on my amps ability, which the AX10i has plenty off)
