I have an older Toshiba DVD 2 Disc Player with component output and have to upgrade it for my new PLV-Z1 or X1 to gain the advantage of progressive output.


I have been looking at this player a while and now it is under ~$165 locally.


Denon DVD-900

• Progressive Scan featuring DCDi by Faroudja decoding engine

• 3:2 Pulldown Detection

• Plays CD/CD-R/CD-RW Discs, *DVD-R Conditionally

• MP3 Decoder for encoded CD-R/RW Discs

• 12-bit, 54-MHz Video DAC • Burr-Brown 24-bit, 192-kHz Audio DACs

• 2MB Memory Buffer to decrease layer change pauses or pickup dropouts

• Selectable 24 bit, 96 kHz PCM output pass-through capability

• PCM, DD, dts compatible Optical and Coaxial Digital Outputs

• Component, S-Video and Composite video outputs

• Passes Below Black(Pluge) for proper Monitor Calibration

• Picture Zoom

• Dimensions: 17.1"w x 3"h x 8.3"d


So, now my question. Is it a good low end player or is the Denon 1600 worth spending the extra cash for?


TIA,

John

The DVD-900 has a poorer Mitsubishi MPEG decoder that has the chroma bug and the frequency response is poor, so the image is quite soft. Also has a color flicker bug due to CSS turned on. The Denon 1600 is much better, available for under $300 now if you hurry.
