    My favorite electronics store is having a sale next Wednesday night and I have decided that will be the day I pick up a new DVD player and it is going to be either the 2200 or the 2900 and I really need some input. I was prepared to spend the $$ for the 2900 but if the 2200 will fit the bill I won't object to saving the money. Any thoughts?

    I'd save the money and buy the 2200, but who know's how critical you are about you're equipment. From what I've heard the video is almost identical; basically the only advantages of the 2900 are the build quality and audio for DVD-A/SACD. There's plenty you can do with the $400 difference.

    Is there a significant difference in the audio between the '2200 and '2900? I am looking at the '2200 for DVD-Audio in my second stereo system, but would entertain the '2900 if there is a lot to be gained there.

    I've yet to see/hear the 2900, but I do really like my 2200. For the extra $400, you can upgrade something else.

    IMHO, the denon sounds great with CDs and SACDs. I've yet to hear DVD-Audio (can't find a disc I'm interested in).
