I agree with others regarding the PS3. Not something I will be getting for the reasons mentioned(fan noise, odd remote situation, DTS-MA, etc).
when gran turismo 5 comes out I might jump(GT4 is the only game I have for PS2 and the only reason I bought a gaming console).
Since it's obvious at this point that we will have a single format sooner rather than later, and it will be BD, I am really anxious to see the Denon line.
I bought the XA2 HD DVD a month ago when I jumped into the HD arena, BUT it was primarily as a SD DVD upscaler and it comes through with flying colors on that count.
I have a Denon 3910 SD DVD player and have been very impressed with their video products for awhile.
since we now know who the winner in the war will be, I will wait for the Denons to come out, make sure they have everything(ethernet, both multi-channel audios, bitstreamed and decoded, etc).
I will have no trouble dropping serious coin for a fully featured, high quality player knowing that it won't become obsolete as a result of the format war.
