Hey all, My Denon DVD 700 arrived and what a tiny unit it is. This is only a short look at it for now and I will post a more detailed thread in a week when I get my whole setup back up and running. So what can I say, first of all it is a sexy unit. Looks like the rest of Denon's line so its going to fit right in place. It's a half depth unit around 20cm in depth around the same size as a sky digi box. First thing I tried out was the multi region patch direct from Denon. My unit came with this already applied and came under warranty. I've tried RCE Region 1 discs and Region 2 discs, all play fine, so the region patch worked perfectly. Next picture quality, ok I can't test this perfectly because my good cables are packed away, but it looks good. The colours are bright and crisp. Though there was a little image shadowing but I think this was due to the cables, will know later when its all hooked up. Menus navigate fine, there is a small pause of around 1/2 a second before the next screen would appear but nothing out of the norm. To be honist slightly faster than my dead Loewe Xemix. Next of all is the layer change. Again this has has a small pause of around 1/2 a second, but its not bad. I've got a load of SVCDs and it plays them all which my Loewe wouldn't even attempt to touch. So things to still test are: High Quality video cable, digital out, WMA cd's. (don't touch MP3, I own all my cd's and I make my own WMA mix cd's using Windows Media Player). If you have anything you'd like me to test or look at in closer detail just ask away and i'll see if I can do it.
