The 3910 will have basically identical video and digital audio performance, the cost increase is for a better analog output stage and nicer chassis. The 3910 to me sounded very similar to the 2910 but with a bit more bass and drive. Both sound a little dark and recessed, and neither pulls a lot of detail on its own. A better idea is save up for a higher end universal or buy a standalone CDP. I am using a Bel Canto PL-2 and I also have a 2910, there is absolutely no comparison in the audio, though the 2910's video is equal or possibly better IMHO. I got my PL-2 from underwoodwally for a steal, might be worth a look.
