If you thought standard Blu-ray players were still a bit pricey, wait ’til you see Denon’s DVD-3800BD, which comes in at a cool £1,600.

For that, you do get some superior technology, including reference-standard Blu-ray disc playback offering Denon’s best pictures to date, with fantastic audio reproduction to match.

Denon is the first manufacturer to use the 10-bit Silicon Optix Realta chipset, as well as HQV video processing, digital noise reduction, and 12-bit/297MHz video DAC.

Added to which, all your existing standard definition DVDs should look brilliant, too, thanks to the Realta scaler which outputs SD content in 1080p.

Denon’s Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit supports the latest high definition audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master, while other technologies such as Advanced AL24 Processing and AL24 Processing Plus enhance audio purity.

All this tech goodness is wrapped up in a shielded case featuring Denon’s Suppress Vibration Hybrid loader mechanism for stable disc rotation and greater accuracy in disc reading.

Available in three finishes — silver, premium silver, and black — it’s a seriously high-end piece of kit for the most discerning of video and audiophiles.

Coming in December.

  • These big ticket items are way out of my league…it’s why for 2008 holiday shopping I’m buying my gifts online on sites that have monthly financing, television financing, and other big ticket items financing.
