    I was thinking of buying a Denon DVD-955s, but first I was hoping to hear from someone who may already have experience with this particular model.

    I am looking for a player that handles both SACD and DVD-A (with bass management), and also has HDMI upconversion.

    From what I see, this is a newer model that appears to be similar to the older Denon DVD-2910. Are there any significant differences between these two models?

    I actually went to purchase one today from a local retailer and was surprised to find that they no longer had it in stock and weren't planning on getting any more. They offered me a discount on the floor model, but when they couldn't find the manual and original paperwork, I walked away. Can anyone think of a good reason this would no longer be stocked? Are SACD/DVD-A players being phased out, due to lack of substantial interest in the formats?

    Finally, if anyone has any other suggestions for players with similar features in that price range ($600-700), I'd love to hear them.

    Thanks in advance.
