Denon DVD-A1UDCI Universal Blu-ray Player


The Denon DVD-A1UDCI Universal player faces stiff competition from the Oppo BDP-83, and now even more competition from the BDP-83 SE (which I have not used yet). In my daily use, I found the image quality during movies to be the equal of the Oppo, and...

Denon DVD-A1 UD


Gorgeous design and top build-quality., Outstanding picture and sound (for both Blu-ray and DVD)., Excellent range of features., Optimum hardware for audio and video optimization.

Extremely long loading times, as well as delays during navigation., Needs other Denon devices in order to provide its best sound., Not exactly cheap.

Does it get any better than this? Actually, no! Denon’s new top player is the best of the best, providing top-quality video and audio transmission. But that’s not all; the player also offers great build quality, a superb feature set, and a handy video...

Denon DVD-A1UD review


Denon's flagship player will spin almost every disc format you can think of

Stunning life-like picture ; Genuine hi-fi sound ; Awesome DVD upscaling ; Brilliant connectivity

Complex to set-up ; Painful price tag

Denon DVD-A1UD Universal BD, DVD Video, DVD Audio, SACD, and CD Player.


Let's be honest and cut to the chase: any Blu-ray Disc player with a price-tag higher than three figures has got its work cut out for it. Such is the case with Denon's DVD-A1UDCI, which has been in development for some time and has been designed from...

Denon DVD-A1UD Universal Blu-ray Disc Player Review


Denon's DVD-A1UD might just be the single machine to replace your separate BD, DVD, and audio disc players - provided you're rich.

Untampered-with 1080p output means video quality from 1080p BDs is nearly as good as we could hope for ; Some of the best DVD Video playback I've seen ; Bulletproof build quality ; 2.35:1 stretch mode will benefit Anamorphic projection users ; 10-point...

Incredibly expensive ; 1080i film mode processing is inferior to one considerably cheaper machine ; A little slow ; Gamma control UI (one of the most useful features) is a pain to use
