one reviewer and some consumers have complained that the Denon DVD-900 is not the same machine as the DVD-1600 and has a soft picture. I have been waiting for a low price, progressive scan, chroma bug free Denon player for a while, and after having been given pause by all the complaining about soft picture, I've decided to ignore it all and find out for myself. I just ordered one from crutchfield (I could have picked one up at tweeter, but I've sworn never to do business there again), and I expect it before the end of the week. I shall post a full review re picture and sound quality, as well as usability and functionality, and also the quality of the remote. If I find that the picture is indeed no good, I'll return it.
