    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. :smashin:
    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).

    Congrats. Solid buy and very good value for money at the moment.

    I have owned four Arcam DVD players - DV88, DV88P, DV89 and now a DV79 but never noticed the fading effect when you skip a chapter :confused: I'm going to pay more attention next time !
