Is anyone able to comment on the advantages and disadvantages of the above two DVD players when compared to each other? Im having to buy on spec as demos are not easy to arrange where I am. After doing some reading up these seem to be the two best and most readily available for the price Im looking at (around 600 GBP). The only thing is my local dealer has the Pioneer in stock now whereas the Denon would be a real pain in the a*se to import and get hold of here. So is it worth going the extra mile for the Denon or is the Pioneer just as good? For example Ive heard the Pioneer is not so hot on CD playback. Is that the case for the Denon also? Its primarily for DVD not CD but good CD playback is a nice to have. They both have HDMI but I dont have that on my PJ so no big deal there. The Denon has DVI which the Pioneer doesnt. I have DVI on my PJ but am planning to use component switching it via my amp. Any other points I should know about?
