    Currently I have a Denon DVD 1600, and I have been reading about players that upscale to 1080i, or better features, etc. I have a Mitsubishi 65" HDTV 65869 or something like that, can't remember off the top of my head, and all I can view movies in is 480p. I am using a Pioneer Elite VSX 53TX receiver, so any of the Elite payers with i-link won't benefit me [​IMG]

    What do you guys think I should do???

    I'd stick w/ the 1600 atleast until reports are in on the Denon 1910, 2910, and 3910 and maybe pick one of those up depending on your budget (assuming your TV has a DVI input available). The 1600 is a great player so I wouldn't worry too much about what you're missing out on.

    I'm not sure what your t.v. has, but if it doesn't have a DVI or HDMI input, you are limited to one player I believe that upscales DVD to 1080i through a high band component video input and that's the Zenith player.

    My player doesn't play anything but DVD Audio, so I won;t be able to explore the SACD formats, etc.

    I believe my TV does have a DVI input on the back, it looks like a computer port correct?? I am just getting a little bored with my current player and was looking into my options, if nothing out there reasonably priced is worth it, then I will stick with the 1600.

    Thanks for the help guys, keep the info coming, if there is any [​IMG]

    Based on posts here and other forums upscaling DVD players are definetly the rave of watching movies close to HD quality. I plan to get one and update my current 2nd generation Pioneer. I have two progessive scan players but both share vhs so I wouldn't put in the main HT. Anyway, maybe it would be worth waiting for the new line of Denon upscaling players.
