It's interesting that a few responded to this comment without asking a key question. What is "many"?
Denon's marketing and r&d people realize that a $3500 player is targeted to a very select demographic. So does "many" units mean Denon's goal of sales? Does "many" units mean enough units to get the AVS forum members to form a powerbuy? Or is "many" units in the ball park of 2900, 3910 sales?
Apesma, I like you do remember all the extensive chat about the 2900 and 5900 before and after release...the feedback is why I bought both. And to a certain extent the early good reviews of the 5910 is why I have it on order and will pick it up this week.
But as Kris stated most of the players that had the real excitement and thread talk are 2900's, 5900's, 2910's, 3910's etc....street sub $2k (bigger audience). Unfortunately I would not expect many threads(read "interest") about a $3500 player. For example, how many times do you think the average forum member spends time reading and posting on the high end or ultra high end projector pages? I suspect not much...it's a very limited market. Heck...I even had to special order the 5910 because most mid end retailers do not and will not even have it on the floor.
For the market Denon is targeting I would not be surprised if they sell "many" relative to target if this is the player that the reviewers say it is. I'm at least hoping it is!
