    Apparently, the Denon DVM-4800 will very likely be the same chip that the Panny RP91 uses...a next generation Genesis chip that allows aspect stretching and NO Chroma bug. It should be out mid-September. I'm not crazy about the 5-disc changer though. Oh well, you can't have it all!

    I am fine with 5 disc changers as they are useful for generating background CD music, but what I don't understand is the point of a 5 disc player without a legitimate randomization feature that randomly shuffles between discs! That is the only reason to buy one!
    From the brochure. . .
    "Random Play is possible with CD and DVD-Audio discs, playing one disc at a time. For example, if a CD is loaded in Tray 1 and a DVD-Audio disc is in Tray 2 and Tray 2 is random selected first, Random Play plays all the tracks of that disc at random. When it finishes Tray 2, it random plays the disc in Tray 1."

    John,
    I haven't heard anything yet, but I will keep my eyes open...
    It actually says, "Tentative" at the top of the page so we'll see what develops.
