|It's a royal pain in the butt to set up, try out, double check all the settings, figure out somethings wrong with the player, then travel back to a dealer to exchange, set it up again and cross your fingers nothing's wrong his time.
Martin, you are 100% correct. I really like the Denon folks and DenonJeff cannot be beat but it seems as if every one of their DVD players (particularly the higher end ones) have some really annoying bug or flaw when it is released. It is almost always something different from the flaw on the last player when it was released.
They usualy get it corrected shortly before they announce their next new player, that sounds like it will be the one we all want. Then that one gets released and it too has some really annoying bugs upon release.
The DVD 5900 is no exception, unfortunately. It has macro-blocking on black and very dark grey, it has noticeable layer changes, when I was hoping they would be invisible, it pops up subtitles at odd times for no known reason, and it doesn't have the zippiest menu navigation.
It does output a terrific picture, and I believe they will get all the bugs worked out in a couple of months.
I would recommend anyone who wants this player to hold off a few months (and also see what else is on the horizon by then!!)..
