    I am not sure.

    The feeling i got was that it was replacing the DV27 but i could be wrong.

    I am hoping so..i have a DV27 and want Arcam to release an FMJ replacement with HDMI included as i am on the verge of buying a projector.

    Then i plan to upgrade to an Arcam Blu-Ray ( or HD-DVD ) FMJ player some time in the future.( Please,please,please release one Mr. Dawson ).

    I would have thought so.

    My DV27 is one of the 1st gen machines so i am not so bothered about buying a new FMJ player a a replacement.

    If this helps your concerns.....a dealer who i respect told me that he thinks Arcam will offer an upgrade for the DV27 when necessary.

    I'm pretty happy with my DV88+ which just got the SiI504 PS board. But I'll be ready for an FMJ in the future if/when Arcam has a HD version (whatever that end up being).

    Indeed now the Diva range is HDMI compatible, hence dv79, Arcam should better not wait too long to upgrade the FMJ range.

    Thanks for sharing with us Zam

    "It's not called anything because it doesn't exist yet, except maybe in Mr. Dawson's head. Why don't you all stop speculating on stuff that there is no hard facts on."

    I guess we are all wrong and you are right.....

    If it exists in Mr. Dawsons's head then that's good enough for me.

    Are you asking if the surround sound is overly bright?

    My room is on the bright side to begin with (plaster on concrete walls, hardwood floors with lg. wool area rug), but with my speakers (Dynaudio Audience) it isn't overly so. I haven't made any EQ adjustments in my AVR300 in any case.

    No, I have not heard anything unusual playing CDs on my DV88+.

    However, I don't play music very much with my HT system. For that I have a separate stereo system and room (Arcam Alpha 10/Linn Sondek/Linn Sara) for playing LPs, and I don't have a CD player for it in any case.

    Saw an ad in the latest Widescreen Review mag about the Arcam FMJ DV29. Not much info and not yet on the Arcam website. Should be soon. It's in the Sept. 2004 issue, volume 13, number 9, issue 88.

    A little more detail from the WSR Ad.

    "Just under 3K" USD
    "First player to use the new second gen. HDMI chips with high res audio support"

    Also mentioned
    AVR250
    "A scaled down 300, built on same platform"
    "retail well under 2K" USD

    Some paraphrasing by me.

    Keeping my eye on this thread for sure. Those prices, if accurate look good.

    It will be very interesting to SDI it and compare pic HDMI/SDI...

    I will pick up one for home test for sure, as soon as my dealer gets it!

    ...

    On another thought, is there anyone around (Elliott) who compared DV79 HDMI/SDI?

    I find it also very interesting to find out if AVR250 is enhanced AVR200 or downgraded AVR300

    ....and 'if' there is a whiff of an AV9 in the offing?

    Can't be that far off. With HDMI/SDI appearing all over the place, an updated/upgraded DV29 being whispered about.

    Just looking into my crystal ball.:)

    Don't be so sure. Arcam haven't brought a single update for AV8 until now. Not even PLIIx and they definately have code for it.

    But you are right, sort of board upgrade (as Denon used to do it) with HDMI switching and new processing modes could be nice thing for AV8 owners
