I am preparing to take the plunge and upgrade my AV receiver and DVD player. At the moment, I am really taken by the Denon 1920 for the DVD player. The <500 GBP AV test made a Yamaha and a Denon 2106 very close, with the Yam just pipping the Denon. Would this be the case when connected to a Denon DVD player? Is there any real benefit in having components from the same manufacturer?
Simple benefits - just one remote handset and an aesthetic match should swing you easily. Note that Denon Link outperforms iLink by a huge margin (way less jitter) but is not featured on these models - enjoy
