Longer reviews online is something we're considering.
If we can get our hands on both models then yes, a head-to-head between the Marantz and Denon would be fascinating.
A great looking machine and a fairly substantial review.
I wish all the online reviews were given the same treatment.
Any chance that when you guys get your hands on the Denon DVD-A1UD that you could compare the two directly against each other? Obviously the two should share quite a few similarities but I'm intrigued as to which unit trumps the other in different disciplines.
Is this better than the Pioneer BDP-LX91? because they have made improvesments to that player with frim ware updates.
Regardless of the SACD and DVD A capability.
Which has the better picture and sound?
What are the loading times for Blu-Ray?
A good review. Good things don't come cheap is a truism. You mention that the SACD and CD playback is similar to the great sounding Panasonic's SA-7S1 SACD player. Yes some similar circuits here. But can you compare this universal player and the SA-7S1 face to face in direct A/B comparison ? Some SA-7S1 subjectively maintains that their 7S1 sounds better. Please settle this controversy.
My profound apology. It should read Marantz SA-7S1 and not Panasonics SA-7S1.
The second line should read some SA-7S1 owners subjectively maintain that their SA-7S1 sounds better than the UD 9004. Sorry again.
