  1. During the presentation they skimmed over DVD and dived into blu-ray. So I'd assume that DVD will still be region free but we won't know for sure until we get stock in.
  2. The Denon 2010 Australian product launch is this week, so hopefully I'll have some more info for you guys soon.
  3. Well, that was a bit of an oversight!! Thanks for the heads up. See edited post above.
  4. G'day All, The '08/'09 series is all but gone. We still have a few 3808's in stock, all black, but if you want silver, we shouldn't have a problem getting that, too. The 2010 series has started to trickle in. Here are the RRP's and the schedule we've been advised of: AVR-4810 $5999 October AVR-4310 $3999 Soon, replaces 3808 AVR-3310 $2999 Now, replaces 2809 AVR-2310 $1899 in stock AVR-1910 $1399 in stock So keep the e-mails coming and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
  5. Thanks for the e-mails, everyone. Just an apology in advance if I don't get a chance to answer your inquiry for a few days. The end of the financial year has meant that my day job is keeping at the office until very late. But keep them coming and I'll get to them in the end.
  6. Hi again, We've got further discounts being offerred to DTV Forum members on the following models 4308 3808 2809 2309 If you're interested, please contact me at avr3808@hotmail.com avr4308@hotmail.com or denonstuff@hotmail.com and I'll get back to you as quick as I can.
  7. Greetings All, Lately there has been a resurgeance of interest in this group buy/offer. The most common questions are: 1. Is it still open? 2. Does it extend to newer models? The answer is YES to both. As the PM's are coming thick and fast, and since all Inboxes will be cleared in a matter of weeks, can I please refer you to Post 14 in this thread where you can e-mail me for more information. Thanks for your continued interest.
  8. As far as I'm aware, cards manufactured last year must be sent back to Asus for the firmware update for 24Hz passthrough. All cards made this year will supposedly have a firmware update available for it soon. Playback of TrueHD and DTS-HD MA from HD DVD is still, unfortunately, still downsampled to PCM. But I'm not really fussed with that since I have the HD-XE1.
  9. Finally got full version ArcSoft Total Media Theatre for the Xonar HDAV1.3 and it's working superbly! Fantastic video processing with TrueHD and DTS-HD MA bitstreaming is now making my AVR sing and my images look so good I prefer to stay home to watch movies.
  10. It really depends if you want to run blu-ray in the future or not. If so, then you'll definitely need to get at least a dual or quad core CPU to handle the high demands of 1080p processing and high-bitrate audio. Not to mention at least a 7600 series video card. If you also want Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA via HDMI bitstream out, you'll need a a sound card that supports HDMI bitsream-out of these audio formats, like the Xonar HDAV1.3. 2Gb RAM is bare minimum, too. As far as I'm aware, your current video card does NOT support S/PDIF connection, so there is no way you'll get audio and video through a single HDMI cable. So, the simplest and cheapest option to achieve audio and video thorugh a single HDMI cable is to get a video card that supports s/pdif connection for around $100.
  11. Without knowing the specs of your PC, it's difficult to say. Both my previous 7600 and 9600 video cards were designed to make use of a Motherboard's internal S/PDIF connector so that digital audio and video could go through the single HDMI port on the video card. What video card are you using and does it support this use of the internal S/PDIF connector?
  12. Considering most DVD players are multi-zone out-of -the-box, I really have no idea why they insist on making a Region 4 Blu-ray player, or any of their blu-ray players with Regioned DVD for any market for that matter. Very curious
  13. I think Denon Japan "looks after" Australia, so if there's a complaint to be made about Australian issues, I think it would have to be to them. But I'm not sure how much of the wholesale price is set by APG or Denon. Also, I undertsand that Denon considers that Australian market a drop in the ocean since they originally weren't going to release a blu-ray player for Australia with Region 4 DVD component. They initally offered APG the European blu-ray player but, obvoiusly, that wouldn't have been acceptable due to Europe being Region 2 DVD. But I know APG had commit to order a production run of Region 4 DVD blu-ray players, which isn't due to arrive until Feb '09. The fact that APG had to kick and scream for a blu-ray player with the appropriate DVD Region for Australia is just crazy. And even then it will be well over six months after the rest of the world has had it.
  14. That's a pretty good price, Sean. I'd be happy with that. Dunno why it's bouncing for you. I've been getting several e-mails on all addresses over the last few days and have replied without a problem.
