Unless they've fixed the mechanical issues I would cross the Denon changers off your list. They do sound good for the money but chances are the unit will fail in a year. For Denon it would make sense to pick up one of the previous models used, i.e., the DCM-280 or DCM-380. I've heard the Marantz CC4003 changer is more reliable (even though Marantz and Denon or part of D&M holdings). Out of your choices the Yamahas are probably the best options.
