Wonder if anyone with experience of the Pioneer 757i could tell me if the layer change pause is slow or barely noticeable? I'm right down to the wire with a purchase of either a Denon 2800MkII or the 757i. As the only thing I'm concerned about is picture quality (DVD-A and SACD are totally irrelevant to me) I am wondering whether the deciding factor may well be the fact that the Denon is 'pauseless'. Although then freezing problems of the Denon do concern me. Also, I also have a Pioneer 2011 already on order, is the consensus that a Pioneer source should, in theory, sound better through it than from the Denon, as presumably, same brand kit is optimised for it's own range. And help much appreciated.
