Well, to make a long story short my RP-91 died on me last week and I've been without music and movies for WAY too long now. I'm buying a new DVD player and I'll make my decision between the three players in the title, probably within a few days. Basically I know the 2900 and 59avi are much better players video-wise than the 47ai, and I am well aware of all the features and specs of each unit. My goal with this thread is to try and obtain some objective/subjective sound quality comparisons from those lucky enough to have had the chance of comparing these three players. Also, I'd like to hear what you ended up with if you did compare one or all of these players to something else out there.
