My sister is in the market for a 37" Panny plasma to be paired with upscaling DVD player and some version of a sound bar. I have this system with a Denon 1940. However she has a larger budget than I had and is considering a 'better' player and is thinking about the Denon DVD-2930 or the Denon DVD-3930. The question is for the system she is considering (37 panny plas + soundbar) what can she expect for her extra cash? I am happy with my 1940 but she does have more cash to splash so... :) Charlotte

I've got the 1940 and use it with a 40inch screen. I don't see the point personally on spending a lot more for use with a 37 inch screen. Especially as you can pick the 1940 up for £175 these days. I would get one and keep the money for a decent blu-ray player in the future/

Yep I also think the 1940 will be fine on a 37"" Plaz and as a owner of a 3930 I would not recomend spending the extra on either a 2930 or 3930 with the set up that you discribe as the main benifits form the more expensive players would be wasted.

Thank you both, GerraerdasNails and D.J.KRIME,

I will pass those comments on. But can i ask what the 'benefits' of the more expensive players' might consist of? She really is after something as pristine as can be for the space she has!! Thanks C

As the DJ says he has the 3930 but he also has a 50" screen. Imperfections are easier to spot when your screen size gets bigger. I recently mentioned to someone that a 1940 would be a bit too much for a 20" screen.

Okay that you, so I can be confident that I have the 'balance' about right and thus no point in sis splashing her hard earned. :) Great. Thank you again. Next time, will choose the house with the TV possibilities in mind! C

You also would not reap the benifits of the better sound of the more expensive players in the set up your Sister has. You could alternativly opt for a PS3 and then have the advantage of Blu-ray as well.

I was just about to suggest the same thing!

Thanks! One thing I was concerned about with my system (but have not seen any evidence of as yet) and she shares this is the 'lip-synching' problem. I think she feels more cash spent will ensure she escape this. How do PS3s rate in that regard? And do they do both upscaling of SD AND blu-ray? ::) Charlotte

I am using a 1740 on my 37" Panny (Plasma) and it looks pretty good. Not sure if this would offer enough connections to work with the sound bar though - I have no knowledge of them. I decided not to spend the extra money, and wait for Blu-Ray player prices to settle a bit.

Chances are when I buy a blu-ray player, the DVD playing abilities of it will surpass the 1940, anyway.
