Well, I finally bought the Denon 910 against the suggestions of many HTF members (some even say with certainty that the 56 has better PQ than the 910). Well, the suggestion appears to be wrong. Last night I played several movies and did some A/B comparison on my 46" ISF calibrated sony RPTV. Both DVD players inputted to each component input, using cables of the same make and model, optical audio being fed into Pioneer 45TX receiver. Well, the differences are NOT night and day, however they are not subtle nevertheless. 1. subtitle combing on RP-56 in nonexistent on the 910 2. flicker bug on RP-56 is much less existent on the 910. Still there, but doesn't make you want to throw your shoes at your TV. Much less annoying, so to speak. (using supermarket scene from One Hour Photo) 3. colour rendition, exactly the same (using scenes from The Lion King) 4. EE-like effect around hard edges on RP-56 is non existent on the 910. (even scenes from Sound of Music becaomes more bearable, other movie's apparent EE on the 56 completely gone on the 910) 5. Layer change on the 910 is much better, almost non detectable. 6. The 910 is whisper quiet. 7. I'm a firm believer of "digital is digital" but I played back certain harsh sounding scenes from 24 season 2, the harshness diminishes quite a bit on the 910 optical out (as opposed to 56 optical out) So there you go. Anybody own an RP-56 who wants to upgrade , especially due to necessity (player is broken etc), the 910 may be the answer for you.
