I thought I would give everyone a break from all this talk about DVD players, and start this thread. Here is the situation. I have recently purchased a Yamaha CDC-685 5 disc changer, and have had it running for a couple of weeks. Yesterday, I picked up a Denon DCM-370 from a chain electronics store as an open box buy, with the sales guy understanding that I may be returning it within a few days. Here is the test equiptment: - Pioneer Elite 45TX - NHT T5's (doing test in 2 channel stereo) - Interconnects are all Monster Cable of similar quality - Also, have an Elite DV 45A with some quality Audio specs as well to make things even a little more interesting. Currently, I have the Yammie hooked up via Optical, the Denon via analog, and the DV45A hooked up both ways. Thanks to the easy Signal Select feature on the 45TX A/B/C'ing these players is fairly easy. I have already done some listening, and have noticed some nuances between the 2 changers. I have mainly been listening to the DCM-370 with MCACC on. Tried the Direct mode (same w/ DV45A), and really didn't like it too much, unless I have something screwed up. I listened to Marc Cohn's Walking in Memphis a few times on each. I think the Yammie was a little brighter and more "analytical" on the highs than the Denon. Denon seemed like it picked up a touch more bass. More to come later. Anyone else out there have any experiences with these 2 changers? Anyone want to know anything about these 2 that I could test out for you? Anyone out there who could give some advice on how to best test these guys from a "all things being equal" point of view. I'm pretty sure the Yammie would get killed if I hooked it up via Analog, so I'm letting the 45TX process for it. Maybe not the best way to test. Feedback much appreciated. Let's take a break from DVD players and which Panasonic to buy, and talk some straight audio.
