    I'd buy it as a dedicated audio player at best. It's not much of a video player. Not their best offering, imho. I'd look out for the Yamaha s2500 or even the c750 changer as alternatives if you wanted to stay in this brand.

    I had this unit for about a minute, until I saw that it does not pass DVE's pluge test (no blacker than black). I returned it for the Denon 2910 and have been very happy with it, although a bit pricier at $650.

    Basically, the forthcoming Yamaha s2500 in January will probably be a direct competitor to the Denon 2910. The Yamaha s1500 isn't even that.

    I preferred the sound of the 1500 to that of the 2200 - which is the same as the 2910.
