I first want to say thanks for your time reading and hopefully responding to my question. I am looking to purchase my first Progressive scan DVD player. I currenly have an Onkyo DVD-S535. I am somewhat pleased with it. It has lasted me two years, and my only complaint is that faces tend to take on the background color when there is a rock/stair/ledge in the background right behind the character. I am purchasing a HDTV and am looking to upgrade my DVD player. (I am selling my DVD player with my TV). It will be a 55" set. I have narrowed it down to the Denon DVD-910, 1815, 1200, 2815, 2200, Kenwood DV-6050, Mitsubishi DD-8040, and the Yamaha DVD-C940. (These are all sub $500 players with the faroudja chip). I have read the reviews on audioreview.com, but they tend to be old units. They also don't seem to like Denon players. I am impressed with Denon having all of their players use the faroudja chip. However, I have normally been an Onkyo/Integra fan. They don't have a DVD player with faroudja, so I am not considering them. I am a Mitsubishi fan, and have a TV and VCR from them. The new TV will also be a Mits. The build quality of my SVHS player is superb. Too make a long story short, I don't have access to store with all of these players. (Actually, all the national chains don't have most). So, I was wondering what you all think? Thanks...and sorry for the long post.
