Pioneer DV79AVi vs. Denon 3910 for audio quality?

I am looking at these two players with audio quality on CD, DVD-A, and SACD as the determiner. I have read a portion of the AVS thread on the 79AVi and most folks are very impressed with the audio quality. What about the Denon 3910?

Also, it seems some people feel the I-Link connection on the Pioneer offers superb audio quality due to the elimination of jitter in the digital signal that can occur with a coaxial connection.

For now, it will be connected via the analog outputs and coaxial digital to my Sony DA4ES receiver.

Any more comparisons or experience using these units for audio?

Thanks much
I own the Denon 3910 and on HDCD I think it is indistinguishable from my Arcam CD23T. I have since replaced the CD23T with a Benchmark DAC1 using the Denon as transport. Both connect to balanced inputs on a Bryston BP26 preamp (a Jensen transformer converts the 3910 to balanced). There is an obvious level difference between the 3910 direct and via the DAC1, so I'm not doing a valid comparison. But, FWIW I'd say they are very close on CD. All in all, I think the 3910 is a very good player.

Don't know if that helps any.
Any other recommendations? I am still on the fence between these two units in the ~$400 range, and now the Oppo 980H has reared its head as an alternative.

I do like that the 980H has the HDMI 1.2 output, so I send the SACD and DVD-A signals to a new-fangled reciever when I get one!

I don't think the Denon has HDMI 1.2, but doesn't the DV 79AVi?

That's what I'm curious about as well. I could get an Oppo 980H now, but would need to put aside some time and cash to get a Denon 3910. Obviously the 3910 (and that Pioneer) are more substantially built than the Oppo, but when it comes to using it as a CD transport or as a self-contained multi-channel SACD/DVD-A player, are they worth the extra $400 for what they give back?
I can't tell you anything about the Denon but I've had my DV79AVi for over a year now and am very happy with it.

My first foray into hi-rez was with a Yamaha S1500 which (when it was working) gave me slightly better sound in sacd/dvd-a than redbook. The Pioneer on the other hand fully immersed me into the superiority of hi-rez. Namely, a denser tonal quality that is heads above redbook. On redbook I'll stick with my Benchmark DAC1 with dedicated cd transport. Using the Pioneer into the DAC1 (optical) for dvd movie dialog and the occassional cd is quite good but not as good as the transport/DAC1. Oh, and by the way, the DV79AVi was terrific video quality into my standard tv.

I hope this is some help to you.
