All the great reviews of the Oppo make me think it would be a great unit for my upcoming plasma purchase (either Panny or NEC... not sure yet).


Anyhow, I have some SACD's so I don't want to miss out on their great sound and the Oppo doesn't play them. I don't want to limit myself either, so would like DVD-A capability.


The Denon 3910 is a strong contender but has 2 minor problems: price and some MB complaints.


The scaler in the NEC panel is supposed to be very good, so I think I would like to be able to feed it 480i via HDMI. This way (if I understand correctly) the signal is not converted to analog to be scaled, but sent digitally and unprocessed (correct me if I'm wrong here...), and the panel is doing all the conversions.


So, I'm not sure if the Denon 3910 can send 480i over HDMI or if there are others out there that would work well for these panels (without suffereing MB).


Any suggestions would be appreciated. :confused:


Cheers

If you want a universal player that outputs 480i over HDMI, you need to look at Pioneer (59ai or 79ai). The Denons do not do so.

Good idea... if it will have SACD capability. Would you happen to know?

Also, any idea when?

The current Oppo plays DVD-A but not SACD. I doubt the replacement Oppo will play SACD (posts about it have not mentioned SACD).

Careful of the Oppo married with a Panasonic (commercial), we are having macroblocking problems with it. Better go with a non-faroudja player, Sony for exemple.
