Hi folks, took delivery of an SDI modded DV89 today (modded and supplied by PJ HiFi). The first thing which pleasantly surprised me was the fading from one frame to the next when skipping chapters. Classy. Picture quality through the Clarus video processor is exquisite. Initial impressions (first time I've seen an Arcam player) are very positive. The speakers are coming next week. Check my signature for details on the home cinema, though not much on the player, yet (there will be).
