I am running a Sanyo Z2 projector. Was using a Momitsu V880 with DVI but it always seemed out of focus to me. Just for kicks, I ran an old Toshiba dvd player thru my Yamaha Z9 via component to see if the DCDI upconversion in it could do a better job than the Momitsu. I am getting a much better picture now with the Z9 and old component cables.


My question is:

Should I upgrade to the new Yamaha S2500 dvd player when it comes available, or would that be a waste of money since the Z9 is doing a good job upconverting from a cheap dvd player?


I could connect the S2500 to the Z2 with and HDMI/DVI cable to get the advantage of an upconverted signal that doesn't go thru any digital to analog to digital conversion.

I've been wondering the same thing. I'll looking to buy an H/K 7300 which has the upconverting (to use with my Denon 2900). Either that or drop the cash on a Denon 3910.


Can I persuade you to buy a Denon 3910 (and do the comparison: Component vs. DVI/HDMI) on your Z9? Just hoping...

The 3910 looks like a great machine... I am actually probably going to get the Yamaha S2500 so that I can pass the audio thru the Z9 via IEEE.

I was seriously considering a 3910 but Denon has made there IEEE connection propriatory (spelling?), and I am not willing to throw away the Z9 just yet.

The Denon 5805 looks like the beast I would want (I am using their old flagship 5700 and I really like the way it sounds).

Unfortunately, they don't pay us humble janitors enough to get the best of the best.

I am also considering building an HTPC, but don't know if I want to be constantly tweeking for the best picture.

This is not correct. The IEEE 1394 output on the 3910 works just fine into a IEEE 1394 (i.Link) input on such equipped components. DenonLink is proprietary and is another transport entirely. The 3910 has both outputs - i.Link and DenonLink. You shouldn't have to throw away your Z9 just yet. :)

Wow, my salesman sure missed an easy sale on that one!!

Do you have a 3910 using the IEEE output? Cause if you are, I'm going to have to reconsider the 3910 because I would like to use the dvi instead of an HDMI/DVI conversion cable (to avoid loss of black level or whatever).
