Denon DVD 1920


Denon has improved the specification and enhanced the all-round performance of its entry-level HDMI equipped player - without substantially increasing the cost. There are still less expensive alternatives but none that can equal the DVD 1920's...

Universal specification, superb build quality, outstanding performance from every output

Ugly remote

Denon DVD-1920 multi-format player


HDMI-capable universal disc player at a budget price...

Great value; HDMI out; plays all sorts of discs including hi-res audio and DivX ;

Not all DivX files play successfully ; High-Definition-ready TVs are pouring out of factories and into homes, even though the availability of HD broadcasts and disc software lags well behind and only starts rolling out extensively during 2006. So, how...

This tremendous value player is no snob because it makes the best of whatever you chuck at it - from heavily compressed recordings to full-resolution formats. The upscaled pictures are not quite as pure as true High Definition but this is one of the...

Denon 1920 has major problems


When it works, it works well with excellent audio and video quality.

Not truly compatible with recordable DVD formats and should not freeze up under any condition.

Denon 1920 has major problems


I bought this player mainly because it would play both DVD-A and SACD discs and because it contained a Faroudja scaler that would upscale everything to 1080i and transmit it over an HDMI link. I also relied on the web site for detailed specifications ...

When it works, it works well with excellent audio and video quality.

Not truly compatible with recordable DVD formats and should not freeze up under any condition.

I've had this player for well over a year now and cannot fault it, particularly on the upscaling of standard DVD's. I've spent a lot of time looking closely at my Blu-Ray machine but when I want to watch a DVD I keep coming back to this machine to...

Good looks, a superb picture and good range of audio choices.

Haven't found one yet!

A fantastic piece of AV kit at a great price. Will revitalise your DVD collection. A must have!

Picture quality via HDMI connection in both 720p & 1080i. Sound, particularly Super audio , ease of use and looks.

Frustratingly, no upscaling facility via the rather clumsy looking remote control.

An excellent sub 250 HDMI enabled DVD player with great visuals.

Superb picture quality with HDMI output. The Faroujda upscaling proves it's worth time and time again. Great price for the feature set.

Build quality is a little cheap, especially the remote. It can also show the flaws in your source if the DVD is poorly encoded.

Product Specifications

The DVD-1920 is endowed with technology to unleash the full impact of DVD-Video picture quality.

With these advanced video image technologies, the DVD-1920 will reproduce with the highest resolution, DVD images on Progressive-compliant monitors and projectors. In addition to these features, the DVD-1920's HDMI port supports multi-channel DVD-Video and DVD-Audio output when connected to HDMI compliant equipment. For sound, it is high quality audio D/A conversion and Digital Bass Management that will bring out the best of not only Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio discs, but your entire CD collection as well.
