Bottom Line:   

I really like this Universal Dvd player...
I was looking for a good audio player that does all formats (sacd, dvd-audio etc) and handles basic dvd video...

I prefer the audio on the marantz over both the denon1930 & 2930 which i auditioned at home.. the denons upper treble seemed rather hard and fatiguing...
You can cut the treble frequency at 50khz for the 2930, but this was not as musical to me as the marantz... the 2930 also seemed to have very little bass (for 2 speaker stereo)...

The Marantz Dv6001 sounds smooth with good detail and excellent bass...
What sweetens the deal is the cd-upsampling - up to x2 (96khz) or x4 (176khz)... noticeable improvement in smoothness, drive and width of soundstage for regular cds...
If the next dv7600 has cd-upsampling, i would also probably upgrade to that...

Good Sacd discs sound amazing... (like the santana abraxas sacd)..
Audio Ex is nice, turns off video & display for better sound...

Video is good... but definitely below the denon 2930 video quality-which is exceptional...

I prefer the audio on this over both the denon1930 & 2930 which i auditioned at home.. the denons upper treble seemed hard and not as enjoyable... the 2930 also seemed to have almost no bass (for 2 speaker stereo)...

The Marantz dv6001 is smooth with good detail and excellent bass...
What sweetens the deal is the CD-Upsampling feature - can set it to either x2 (96khz) and x4 (176khz)... sounds fantastic...
Compare Josh Rouse's 1972 tracks 1&2 with x4 upsampling on & off... very noticable increase in smoothness, drive and with more expansive soundstage...
Probably would have gone with the dv7600 but it didn't have cd-upsampling (if they offer it in the next version, i will upgrade)...

Sacd discs sound excellent...
Audio Ex is nice, turns off video & display for better sound...

Video is competent (equivalent to the denon1930)... still a big step below the denon 2930 video...
