going with the denon dvp-602, and have not noticed them.
I noticed diagonal lines on a marantz ud9004 wich i had home a couple
of weeks. It was when watching a dvd in 1080p. And this has the realta chip...
Strange, did not thing the realta had that. These are more noticable when
enhancer is up a bit. Also sharpening enhances these diagonal lines.
Thanks for sharing that. I have an Oppo BDP-83SE, which uses the ABT2010, but I've never seem such a phenomenon. However, I would suspect that the transport doesn't have all of the features vp50pro or Edge.
It is also interesting that the Realta in the Denon DVP-602 doesn't exhibit the problem, but the Realta in the Marantz UD9004 does.
I guess we are back to processor versus transport even though they share the same chip.
In a previous post you mentioned the HQV Vida. I know Yamaha is using this chip in their RX-A2000/A3000. Have you heard anything about the prowess of this chip?
