    Hello, I'm new to the forum so I'm going to jump right in. I am looking to upgrade my current DVD player (Toshiba 5109). Additionally, I am using the Philips 55pp9701 as my display. My question is which player out there offers the best performance. DVD-A is not really an issue, I'm looking for rock solid video performance. The players I had in mind are the Denon 2800 (12 bit 54Mhz video, 24 bit 92khz audio)with silicon images DVDO pure progressive, the Denon 4800( same specs but with the Genesis chip, DVD-A, and 5 disc storage, or the Integra DSP 9.1/ Onkyo DV-939. I am a bit concerned that the Integra/ Onkyo players only use 10 bit D/A chips. This is due to the reason that it takes 8 bits to process DVD video plus an extra bit for sync with a +- 1 to 2 bit tolerance. Maybe it is irrelevant, but I thought I would put it out there and somebody more informed than myself could shed some light on this issue for me. Thanks.

    From the looks of that shootout, the Philips is the best!Especially with the new Philips not having the upsampling chroma bug!
    It also looked like the Kenwood and the Denon did well too!
