'Pure Direct' gone from the new Denon DVD players?



I was down at my local electronics megastore and they had a Denon DVD-2930 next to a DVD-2910. The two were identical externally except the 2930 was missing the 'Pure Direct' button on the front (see attached phone picture - if you know what you're looking at). This press release doesn't mention anything about it, but it's far from a solid fact sheet.

So I'm wondering if it's been dumped? Everyone seemed to like it. Maybe no-one was using it. Or maybe they've just moved it into the menu options.

Edit: the 2930's on the left, the 2910 on the right.

They still have the Pure Direct modes but they're now accessed from the remote only, rather than via the front panel.
