So, my Denon DVD-5910 (from 2005) died over the weekend. No video out, which means I can't select DVD-Audio tracks from from my display. I've used the player only as a music player (SACD, CD, and DVD-Audio), with a DenonLink connection to my Denon 4311 receiver.
I plan to order a replacement player later this week. My question is, how happy have folks been with the 4010 for music disc performance? I was generally happy with the 5910, except that it would have some problems playing some older SACDs and, occasionally, some older CDs.
My choice at this time seems to be either the Oppo 93 or the 4010. I like Denon, but I'm a little irked that my $3500 DVD-5910 crapped out after less than 6 years. Also, I don't want a player that's finicky about playing discs. Oppo of course has a reputation for sterling customer support, but it's hard to believe that the build quality of their $500 player compares to a $2000 Denon. (But my DVD-5910 was built like a tank and it's still dead.). I'm looking for info about the real-world reliability of the 4010 and its ability to play any SACD, DVD-Audio, or CD I throw in it.
