Hello fellow forum members. I am in a dilemma and I need your expertise. I am torn between these four players and I cannot make up my mind. I just want to make the right decision. All these players I can probably get for about the same price. I just found the Pioneer 47ai for $550 and I think it is a hell of a deal. I have been told that the performance of the Denon 2200 and 2900 is so close that it is not worth the extra hundred bucks to buy the 2900. And a local home theater store told me that they liked the Rotel better than the Denon 2200. So many conflicts in opinions that I have to turn to you folks here. I need an unbiased opinion with people who has experiance with these players to help a newbie make a decision that he wont regret. Right now, Im really leaning towards the Pioneer just for overall for the deal that I will get although I havent heard much about it. Their has been great commotion over the Denon 2200 though. So, would someone please kindly give me a polite "push" to the right direction. Thanks in advance. BTW....I am using the Panasonic rp-82 right now. Do you think I will be see or hear a difference? The panasonic has great video but I dont know how it compares in the audio department.
