Summary: Denon DVD-2910 is a nice dvd player. Images are bright, detailed and colors pretty natural. Film sound is more than acceptable but when moving to 2 channels (CD or SACD) quality is not as good as I hoped. SACD sound is pretty poor when compared with multiformat cd players or dedicated sacd players. When coming to other formats situation can get a little complicated. I have several mp3 cds made from my own cds, none of them is recognized by the DVD-2910s.
Summary: I upgraded to get the best DVD player money could buy (under $1000 of course). One of the reasons I bought this was the ability to play other region DVDs with a little work and that it had HDMI output. I connected the player up to my 43" 1080P LCD and made sure everything was connected and configured correctly. I was amazed to see that on one DVD the THX logo had a green tint to it. Not only that but the faces of people had this as well. It's hardly noticeable.
Summary: Purchased my Denon From ovation.. 1st ones off the truck about 1 1/2 years ago.. THe display went out 2 months later... Sent it in.. Shipped it off.. Was gone for 7+ months. Display was fixed however now the TosLink Audio and 5.1 surround is missing high freqs.. THe tech support is VERY hard to get a hold off. If not existant. DO NOT BUY A DENON IF YOU WANT SUPPORT.. honestly I will never buy a another "denon" product To much hassle..
Summary: I was very disappointed with the audio quality of this player. After reading all the rave reviews, I borrowed one from a friend to try out. How this player was given high marks for CD and SACD audio is hard to understand. With players like the 2910 it's no wonder SACDs are not given the recognition they deserve. This review is for 2 channel audio only. Maybe the 2910 has some surround sound tricks that at this time do not interest me.
Summary: My Denon DVD-2910 quit playing 5.1 audio. Denon has no tech support available that works. The phone system does not allow a person to hold for a tech support person for more that a few minutes. The system asks you to speak louder and asks how you want to send the message. What message, I was never asked if I wanted to send a message. Over all Denon's tech support is unusable.
