Well, it's done. Wrote the check, shook the hand, and I'll have the system here next week sometime.


Here's the rundown:


RPTV - Mits 73" WS373909

Receiver - Denon AVR4802

DVD - Denon DVD-2800

Speakers - Definitive BP3000TL (2), Definitive C/L/R3000, Definitive BPVX/P (2)


So, umm...how'd I do?


Personally, I liked what I heard and the sales guy was able to talk me away from the Elite's to go with the Denon's. I dunno...I'm still floating back down I guess....oh well, can't wait to see it in the living room. I'll probably wet myself.

Jay,


Did you get the DVD-2800 MkII? This new unit uses the Sil504 chipset which has improved de-interlacing over the older Sil503 in the original 2800. The new one also fixed the chroma bug I believe. The price for the MkII is the same as the original.

Jay, I would say you did very well. That Mitsubishi RPTV is probably the most desired RPTV here on AVS Forum. It's a favorite of many ISF techs as well! The Denon is solid of course. I have Definitive Technology speakers as well and I love them. As I tell my pals, I didn't buy them for the powered subs, I buy them for those incredible soundtracks with great midbass and high notes.


Great job, bro! Enjoy your setup!

PhilB -


It doesn't say anything about it being an MKII. I know it's a Denon DVD-2800. If it is the older version maybe I can pick up an upgrade or exchange it for the newer one....


McPatrickClan -


Thanks. I'm glad I got something good. I was a little worried not seeing hardly anything on the forums in the way of DefTech, but it looks like I did well.

Jay, you should LOVE your new speakers. The customer service is very reasonable at D.T. (they are based in Baltimore, I believe) and that RPTV is the crown jewel of many homes.


Get ready to enjoy some amazing home theater!

Well, I really look forward to the speakers and that big ass screen, but I am already worried about the DVD player.


Apparently the Denon DVD-2800 has that "Chroma Bug". Well, the 2800 MK2 fixed the bug, supposedly and it's only about $50 more.


Here's the other problem. I checked the Denon website and it has the 2800 listed with a far less price than what it was sold to me for. Then again, he did knock off about $400 on those speakers. I think I'll be satisfied with the player so long as I get the upgrade, but it sucks to see the price already down on the player as well. I suppose it's an okay compensation what with the low price on the speakers, but anyway. Just thought I'd vent.

What did you pay for your Mitsu? Are you going to have them adjust it to get rid of the Red Push the sets suffers from?

About 8 grand on the Mits, and yeah, I am going to have them adjust it or do it myself with that thing from Radio Shack everyone talks about.

I like how they deleted my post when I said "if you don't mind how large was the check?"


Oh the mods are gods sometimes. When online.

Hmm...that is kind of interesting, I mean....I didn't mind telling you honestly, but oh well. Did you ever see my reply, cause they seem to have taken that off too?

Correction....I just talked to the sales guy I bought all my stuff from and he did sell me the Denon DVD-3800. They didn't have it in stock nor did they have any reading material on it as well so he gave us the 2800 flyer instead...hence my confusion. Sorry about that.

Jay, that's good news. That damned chroma bug can be a real pain if you develop an eye for it. I once sold a 3-week old Samsung player on EBay to get rid of the chroma bug.
