Mentioning Kris's use of a 5900 may not be good for your position, as you may be forgetting that Kris in not using much of his 5900 to get the PQ that he is getting. I believe Kris may be only using the 5900's MPEG 2 decoder (same one as is in the Denon 9000 and 3800) and then picking SDI off it and piping it to his iSCAN HD.
Yes Phil. I know all this.
But if I'm not mistaken, the DVDs Kris want to listen to and watch are first put in the 5900 tray, no?
I'm not taking any "position". If I was not that "touchy", I would choose the 59avi in an heartbeat, because it's one of the best player out there. I did recommend it to alot of my customers and friends. Awesome player for the price.
But no matter what Kris does or own, the first step he has to go through is to put the DVD he wants to listen to in the 5900 tray... no? :D He's not putting it in a 59avi tray as far has I know...
But again you are trying to make me "take a position" when I am not. 2 of my best friends bought the 59avi on my advice in the last month, because for them it was the best player to buy.
There is so much options on the market because everyone needs are totally different.
I really respect you Phil. You are really knowledgeable, and I always read all your posts carefully, because you know what you are talking about. IMHO, you are a great contributor to this forum. And each time you post, I read it carefully.
I know sometimes I have a strong position. But I'm just desperately searching for the best PQ out there. That's all. Be it Denon, Pio Elite, LG, Zenith, V.Inc, Momitsu or anyone else.
I'm planing on using my 5900 with the firewire connection to the Anthem D1 soon like Kris does.
