Bottom Line:   
This unit has always sound great and had an excellent picture. The picture started messing up, similar to the horizontal hold being stuck. This has gotten progressivly worse, until you can't watch a movie at all.

First let me say that when this player worked it was unbelievable. I bought this refurbished by Denon with a 90 day warranty. It seemed like a good deal with the 1200.00 list. Similar problems as other reviews such as skipping in the middle of play or stopping, no cdr/rw, and unorganized remote. All was fine till this last week. An hour into a DVD it goes schizo with ditigal bars all over the picture and intermittent sound. Shi# canned it and bought a new phillips with progressive scan, not the same but works.

this is a follow-up to a review i wrote about 2 years ago when i first purchased my DVM-3700. over the past 2 years it started with the unit skipping to the next disk in the middle of a movie. in the begining it was a rare thing for the unit to skip to the next movie but became worst as time went on. now it has problems recognizing the dvd's even new ones. a message keeps poping up saying "unit cannot play this type of disk,insert another disk." even though it's played the disk in the past with no problems.i've used a dvd lens cleaner and the unit is unlocked to play all ratings of dvd's. and yes i've even tried to initialize the unit a number of times and nothing helps. the unit has a 3 year extended warranty i purchased at Tweeter and will be going back tomorrow. so for those of you who are already experiencing the skip to the next movie syndrom in the middle of the movie you are already watching,get your unit to the shop before it's too late. if you didn't purchase an extended warranty as i did you have about a year before the denon's run out. and thats where it all started about a year ago with the unit skipping to the next movie and it's been going down hill ever since.

Bottom Line:   
When I set out to purchase a DVD player, I wanted to utilize the technology that DVD has brought to market. The ability to play CD-R's etc.. wasn't a big concern to me, as I was buying a DVD player, to play DVD's. And what a DVD player it is. One of the best pictures I've ever seen from a mass market mid -fi player. The reote left a little to be desired, as mostly it has real small buttons and I have real big fingers. It's layout is fair-to-good. The changer mechanism is a bit noisy, but that didn't really matter to me as it does to most other reviewers. The D/A conversion is top rate, and the analogue connected to my B&K Reference 30, it sounds totally awesome. The video is stunning!! This is primarily a DVD player, when it was designed, that was it's main objective. I have not encountered any problems with operation whatsoever. If your looking for a high quality carousel DVD/CD changer, this unit is hard to beat.

Bottom Line:   
Audio quality is first rate connected digital optical to Denon AVR-5700. Even rivals some dvd-A; example: Blue Man Group in AC-3 mode verses DVD-A mode w/ Technics DVD A10. HDCD is stunning and 24/96 Chesky disks are pristine. Video quality is also first rate connected to Toshiba HDTV Widescreen w/ component video. Important to set up video w/ THX optimizer to appreciate low level and below black pluge. Player does randomly change disks for no apparent reason - may be related to IR (ifrared). Have had unit for over a year and now experiencing "NO PLAY" on some DVD's like Toy Story 2; has difficulty reading second layer of "Dances w/ Wolves" - jitter and sometimes freezes up. No problems whatsoever with cd's and even dts cd's; Looks like I'll be in market for a new DVD player soon - but will keep the 3700 for cd's - nice changer, but not as quiet and fast as previously owned Denon products.
