I'm looking to purchase one of these players, they are in my price range of $1000.00 or less. SACD is the deciding factor for me. The denon is a universal player which would be nice to have all the formats. Audio and video is important. I use my system 50% home theater and 50% for listening to music. I hear the video is better on the Denon which would be nice for my 65 inch toshiba, but some say the audio is much better on the 999es over the 2900. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
