Denon DVD-2900

Universal player; superb sound; state-of-the-art bass management; JPEG-photo viewer.

The user manual could be better; some artifacts in video-based material.

EISA Award - Best Product

Expert review by : EISA (

Product Specifications

The DVD-2900 is endowed with PureProgressive technology to unleash the full impact of DVD-Video picture quality. The DVD-2900 also uses a 12-bit, 108-MHz video D/A converter to faithfully preserve the delicate low-level signals often lost during D/A conversion. With these advanced video image technologies, the DVD-2900 will reproduce with the highest resolution, DVD images on Progressive-compliant monitors and projectors. 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.
