I went round-and-round trying to decide which players to replace my current players? I have been using Denon DVD-3930CI universal, Denon DVD-3800BDCI BluRay/CD player and Pioneer Elite BDP-95FD. I have extensive CD, SACD, DVD-A, SD-DVD and BD collection.
I played all SACD's and DVD-A's in the DVD-3930CI, this Denon is such a beautiful sounding player, but I'm ready to move on.
I really love the picture and sound quality produced from the Elite BDP-05FD, especially for SD-DVD's, andof course BD sources. Exeptional CD sound quality. But I'm ready to move on.
I really love the picture and sound quality produced from the DVD-3800BDCI as well. But I'm ready to move on.
So, instead, I purchased, both, the Sony SCD-XA5400ES and the Oppo BDP-95. I'd say a very good deal considering I got both players for like under $2100.00 total. I paid retail for, both, the DVD-3930CI ($1500.00) and the DVD-3800BDCI ($1999.95) years back.
Anyway I'm slowly setting things up right now. I'm using a Marantz AV7005 processor, Parasound Halo A51amp, Monitor Audio GS-Series speakers.
