Denon 2900 - useable w/o TV connected?

I am considering the Denon 2900 for use as a CD/SACD player in a budget two channel system. There would be no TV attached. Is it useable without a monitor or would I need to rig something up for setup etc?

I've got my 2900 playing without a TV as we speak. Works just fine! I would connect it to a TV, get your setting the way you want them then you should be good to go!
Sure. I use my old Denon 2800 in a secondary rig for CD playback.
One of the better player transports of all time. Great as tranport for DAC and can be modded with discrete output.
Built like a tank. Turned into the 3900 series after this version.
