In a post (now appears to have been corrupted), someone mentioned that the Denon DVD-2900 was tested in the "DVD Shootout" on the Home Theater Hi Fi website. I checked it out and noticed right away that they have an ad for Denon DVD players and the Faroudja chip. How can this website be completely impartial when they are running ads of this nature ? Is it not surprising that many of the top performers are Denons and Panasonics with the Faroudja chip ? I know the website needs the income from such ads, but in my mind this seriously undermines the credibility of their results. Sorry to be pessimistic about the shootout results, but my experience with a Denon DVD-900 makes me wonder. I bought the 900 expecting to have better video performance than my current Toshiba SD-4800. The Denon rated about midway on the shootout and the only two Toshibas tested were at the end of the pack. Well I returned the Denon after just one day. I ran the same scenes from LOTR on both players, and I swear the Toshiba had a cleaner and sharper image. Besides, I think the "chroma bug" is over-blown. I have yet to notice the bug in my Toshiba. And the Toshiba had better controls, menus, remote, etc. I think the sound quality from the Denon was its only edge.
