    Does anybody know if this is a possibility or do we have to purchase the 2900 for universal playback?

    Pretty sure it cannot be done. On the horizon is the universal replacement for the 3800.

    Thanks for the feedback Phil. Seeing as the 2900 and 3800 machines are not unlike and the fact that Denon can provide a Firewire upgrade for their amps, I would have thought an SACD mod to a DVD player was a possibility.
    I have e-mailed Denon registering my dissapointment that after forking out £900 a year ago, I now have a piece of obselete kit.
    I will see what they provide in way of a reply.

    i got my dealer to take back my 8 month old denon 2800mk2
    and replace it with a denon 2900 (sacd).

    they took the old one back for £50 less than i paid for it,
    and i got the new model at a reduced price.

    exellent service..........
