Hello to all from across the pond. I just purchased my first Arcam products...AVR300 and the DV29 and was looking for a site related to these products specifically. ...the only small question I have...and I've yet to read all the threads..is the comparisons between the DV27a and the DV29..being that these items were just purchased new has the DV29 had any firmware changes to help in the de-interlacing... Forgive my ignorance because I'm just reading stuff, and haven't even pulled the items out of their boxes yet. From what I have gathered by reading what I could, I'll probably be stunned just to see the PQ for the first time with this player. I currently have a Panasonic S-97 hdmi into my Sharp Aquos and that gets a very refined PQ. This player will be used on my Sony XBR CRT thru component, hooked up of course thru the AVR300. I currently have a Yamaha DSP A-1 with B&W's...sounds pretty good though...I can't wait to hear the AVR300, I read some great reviews. I thought about the upcoming AVP700 & P1000 but, it's really too much for my small room setup. The AVR seemed like the ticket Anyways, guess I'll start reading some posts tonight to catch up on things.
