I am still looking for a dvd player for my home theater setup. I was wondering about the Denon 2900. I know it is a few years old but they were quite expensive when they came out. They seem to be $300 or so on ebay now. I had a newer Denon that I returned because I did not like the Farouja chip. I believe the chip in the 2900 is different. I would like some input on how this unit might work with a new plasma tv. I wonder how it would compare to the OPPO 970 which is high on my list. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
