Denon DBP-1611UD Universal Blu Player First Look


It's just a fact.

If you had asked us the day before the Denon press event is anyone was going to challenge Oppo for Blu-ray recommendation dominance, we'd have said "No way." Boy, would we have been wrong. The new Denon DBP-1611UD might not have all the bells and...

Denon DBP-1611UD 3D Blu-ray Player Reviewed


Denon plans to offer universal playback in all of its Blu-ray players from this point forward. The new entry-level model is the DBP-1611UD ($399). In addition to Blu-ray 3D, SACD, and DVD-Audio support, this player has a limited Web platform with...

The DBP-1611UD is 3D-ready.• This is a universal player that supports SACD and DVD-Audio playback, as well as 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs ; It offers a Source Direct mode to output all discs at their native resolution via HDMI ; The player has...

The DBP-1611UD lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's notthe best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver ; The player doesn't support wireless connectivity to your homenetwork, and its Web platform is limited, compared...

With an MSRP of $399, the DBP-1611UD is the least expensive Blu-rayplayer in Denon's repertoire, yet it offers most of the big-ticketfeatures--including video-on-demand, YouTube, DLNA streaming, and3D-readiness. If all you're looking for is a Blu-ray...

Denon DBP-1611UD


The race for 3D supremacy has taken off in earnest this year. Denon is usually slow in releasing products with the latest technologies for the sake of quality. But they have been jolted by the speed at which the 3D game is played and have announced two...

Denon definitely have the class leading Oppo BDP-83 in its sights when designing this player. Although it lacks the Anchor Bay video processing chip that the Oppo has, the DBP-1611UD pushed the envelope further by adding 3D capability and content...

Denon DBP-1611UD review


Denon's first 3D deck looks like it could be a decent proposition for anyone with a cutting-edge 3D-capable AVR to take care of the sonic side of things.

Exceptional image clarity – especially 3D; easy to set up; decent file streaming compatibility

Ugly menu system; clumsy navigation of media player; dull design

This is Denon's debut 3D BD player - can it take on more established rivals?

Denon DBP-1611UD


Overall an impressive player. Brought this one home a month or so ago and out of the box, it presented itself as a quality BD player. Initial surprise was the loading times. The Denon loads up BD discs as fast as I've ever seen a player. It's...

Great solid build, fast loading times, Netflix, YouTube, remote, great BD playback, 1 GB internal memory

Ugly looking menu, no wifi, a bit pricey, slow power-on time, DVD scaling leaves a bit to be desired

Denon DBP-1611UD



Looks. Matches my Denon AVR 3808 well, BD Playback, SACD, DVD Audio and CD. Fan is quiet

DVD playback. I have a 104" screen using a DILA projector. It shows every flaw. This player just can't compete with the Oppo on DVD upscaling.For me I just don't care. I only have 25 DVD's left in my collection and I can use the Oppo

Great universal disc player


I have been waiting for the release of the 1611UD for several months, having missed my shot at the Oppo. Denon is a great brand, and this unit replaced my older (and much heavier) Denon SACD/DVD-A/DVD player because we needed Blu-Ray and Netflix in the...

Netflix 3D-ready Blu-Ray SACD DVD-Audio disks, USB port for MP3s from external storage

No Pandora, will not play high-rez FLAC files or playlists from PC
