Hey all. I'm getting my Toshiba 64hm84 in a couple of weeks, and I'm thinking of getting an upconverting DVD player to go along with it. The Denon 1910 immediately jumped at me because I currently have the 1600 and it's awesome. Clearly noticeable PQ difference with the Faroudja chip vs. "Best Buy" type DVD players. I say this because I work at BB, and all the DVD players there are pretty much the same, with a few minor differences. I digress . . . We have a Toshiba 5970 upconversion player minus Faroudja hooked up at BB to a Sony KDP42 something we655. It's the 42" LCD with Cable card and tuner and the Superbit version of Spiderman looks pretty sweet on it, so I'm thinking the Denon w/ Faroudja would look even better. The Denon's gotten some good reviews and a few so-so reviews, as far as being a "slow" player, and pretty basic. Basic doesn't bother me because all I want it for is to play movies, but I don't want to wait forever to scroll between menu options (as on the horrid Samsung upconversion players). Don't need DVD-A or SACD. Anyway . . . hit me with your opinions. Also . . . since the player upconverts to 720p, and the native resolution on the 62hm84 is 720p, would that give it a significant advantage over the 480p dvd-1600? Thanks!
