Hopefully this will also have DLNA. If not, the Denon BDP2011 may have a significant edge over it.
Are you sure the BDP-09FD has the latest Marvel Qdeo processor. There are 3:
- The first generation 88DE2710 ("Kyoto") processor was launched at the CES 2007 (January)
- The second generation 88DE2750 ("Kyoto-G2") processor was launched at CES 2009 with improved performance of most of the original features and two new additional features
- The first embedded version of Qdeo is featured in the 88DE3010 (HD Media processor System-On-a-Chip or SOC)
Given the timeline I would think the BDP-09FD would have the 1st generation chip while the BDP-93 has the 2nd generation chip, but I could be wrong.
Also, you really think the possible exclusion of DLNA would give the Denon a significant edge over the BDP-93?
The Denon is $300 more. Do you think DACs (my inclusion) and DLNA warrant's a $300 price difference? I think most will not. I don't think DACs are nearly as important in September 2010 as they were a year ago. I think Denon is tauting their use of the 32 bit BB's to justify their price. Also, AVRs and displays are now including DLNA, but I could be overlooking its importance.
