I noticed those posts and thought the same thing about it being replaced next year. In fact, when I bought my 3910 from Crutchfield in '07 it was half price because it was being replaced.
Are you thinking I should hold off on the 751 in case the price drops further next year, or hold off and wait for the potential new player?
I don't necessarily need the latest and greatest player; I'm looking for a balance between performance and price, which is why I bought the Denon in '07, and it's also why the Cambridge on sale is tempting right now.
The 3910 has been a great unit so far, which is why I'm hesitant to buy a new one (if it ain't broke....) On the other hand, if the audio will be a big improvement over the Denon, I don't mind spending the money on the Cambridge, especially with it being on sale.
Hopefully some forum members have heard both players and can provide some input on the audio differences.
