there seems to be a lot of discussion at this forum regarding the denon dvd-1600 as probably the best mid level dvd player around. but alas the powers at denon have decided to discontinue this model and replace it with another. a good substitute seems to be denons own dvd-1200 model. what is the difference in picture and sound between these two models? is the 1200 a direct replacement of the 1600? they both have the faroudja chips inside so shouldn't they have a near identical picture quality? since the 1200 is cheaper, is there something else missing from it that the 1600 does? fancy bells and whistles mean nothing to me just picture and sound. has anybody done a direct comparison between the two?
