    Terry, I don't know of such links, but Denon took the old Panasonic 'RP56 and upgraded the audio section. Of course, the 'RP56 doesn't play DVD-Audio tracks. I would imagine that the audio section (analog output stage, for example) for the '1600 is better than that of the 'RP82.

    Yup, it is the RP56 with DVD-Audio support and superior DACs than that of the RP82

    While they do have different audio DACs, both players have identical video sections, including Panasonic's top MPEG decoder, not the one used in the RP-56.
