Bought this unit Brand New off eBay for $100.00! I had a Denon-2500 before, and I am running the 800 through my Denon AVR-3802 via the digital optical connection.The 2500 had a much better build quality although, the 800 performs every bit as good as any period!

Bottom Line:   
The model is (April 2002). 400$ CAD

DVD fonction :

The image is fantasticly clear. No artifac at all. The sound is crysp and clear whit optical output. Bad : When the DVD change layer (1 to 2), the image and audio freeze for a short moment (500ms). 3MB buffer was not enough nor don't work fine. It's true that the tray look cheap, but it work fine so...

Also, the DVD have to be "Realy" clean and scatchless. If not, it skip nor freeze for a moments. Use Disk-cleaner before play any DVD. More important if it is a rented DVD. People don't pay attention whit rentall DVD. Probably true whit every DVD player.

VCD fontion:

This feature work great. I took some mpeg clip from internet, burn it on CDR as VCD and...yes, it work !!! Cool !

CD/CD-R/CD-RW/MP3 fonction:

It accept CD, CDR nor CDRW. No problem whit this. Don't skip whit a good quality CD. It skip if the CD are scatch nor dirty. It work fine with MP3 to. I try mp3 on CDR and CDRW. Don't work in multi-session burn mode. The track sometime start whit no sound... Just have to restart the track. It's because there is an art image in the mp3... I think.


Great DVD, solid build quality, Versatil, Sound and image superior quality.

Bottom Line:   
I've read some pretty nasty reviews on this DVD player, but I bought it anyway because I wanted something to match my Denon AVR1602 receiver. My only hang up with it is the tray. The tray seems as flimsy as a cheap consumer grade product. As far as performance goes I couldn't possibly have a complaint. I have Klipsch sub, B&W 602s2, CC6s2, and 600s3 with the Denon receiver and all Monster Cable and it sounds fantastic for music or home theater. When in DD or DTS it sounds better than any theater.
