I saw in another thread that you are connecting the player digitally to your AVR-5308ci. That being the case, the 2930ci would probably be the better buy since it has better video processing. The audio digitally transported to your AVR should sound the same across both players, although the 3910 likely has a better analog audio section if you choose to use it.
You should keep in mind that the 2930ci has a poorly implemented 480i output, so you should not output that resolution from the player to your AVR's video processor. I don't think the 3910 has a 480i output at all, so it's a wash in that respect.
The only other caveat is reliability. I'm not sure how reliable the 3910 is, but many posters in this thread have had optical problems with the 2930ci. Mine has been perfect for over a year, but I will not discount the numerous issues that have been reported here.
