Ok, here is my sort of dilemma. I have been waiting to purchase a universal player (DVD-A/SACD) until the Denon 2900 comes out. However, a local BM has the DV45a on sale this weekend. I want the player mainly for music, so the picture quality isn't as important to me. As I see it, the main advantage of the 2900 over the 45a is that the bass management uses a 80 hz crossover, which is more suited to my setup than the 100 hz the dv45a uses. However, the dv45a would be nearly $600 cheaper than the 2900 and I could add the ICBM for another $250, have a more versatile setup and still save $350. I realize the 2900 hasn't come out yet, so I am just going on the specs from the manual and there are no guarantees of the performance of the player. So, any other reasons why I should wait, or should I pull the trigger now?
