    Just for fun I punched in "Denon DVD-2900" into a Google search and this is what came up...
    http://www.tctv.ne.jp/hightech/homepage/site1/dvd.html
    http://www.hightech-co.jp/syouhin/dvd/denon.htm
    ...Says "new" , looks like the same picture as the 2800 , BUT I'm wondering if Denon has removed the chroma infested ESS Mpeg decoder and updated to the Sil504 de-interlacing engine ? Stacey Spears hinted that Denon was about to "do the right thing" soon and I'm wondering if this is it ?

    Earlier this year, a Denon rep told me they will introduce a top of the line DVD player that does progressive scan, DVD-Audio and SACD before the end of the year. Prehaps's the 2900 is it?

    ......I E-Mailed the owner of the site where the DVD-2900 is shown and asked for product details . He replied and said the 2900 was not yet available for sale . (possible language thing) BUT he did not say that there was a typo or the wrong picture was displayed thereby confirming that this is a new product .
    Now the hunt begins............

    ...The 2800 has always been a single disk player as is the look of the 2900 . The new 4800 is a 5-disk player though . Check the above links , the do have pictures .

    So what's the story? Is the new model, whatever it's going to be called for the USA to play DVD-A and SACD? Any price estimate? I'm ready to spring for a Pan RP-91, but would sure like to have both high-rez formats. Any word on analog base managment being available for the DVD-A/SACD analog outs?
