If you have been following any of the threads on this player, you will know that I have had problems with it. On paper, this is a potentially excellent unit...but the scaling video dropouts were unacceptable. After repeated contact with a tech at Denon, he finally got official word from Japan that there was a problem. Within eight days of notification, I had the repaired unit back in my hands. I can proudly say that this player now rocks. Great picture similar to the Panasonic RP-91, and awesome audio. I now use the Outlaw ICBM instead of Denon's Bass Enhancer though. I am glad to report that Denon has finally taken care of the major problem. With the current rumor about the Panasonic RP-91 possibly being discontinued, the Denon 4800 may be an alternative, albeit a costly one.
