Denon DVD-2930CI

 

The design of DVD-2930CI immediately sets it apart from your bargain DVD player. Its solid construction and all-black brushed metal faceplate give it the feeling of a serious A/V component. There are quite a few front panel buttons, including chapter...

Outstanding image quality; upscales to 480i/480p/720p/1080i/1080p; plays SACD, DVD-Audio, and DivX; solid build quality.

Very expensive for a deck that doesn't play next-gen HD-DVD or Blu-ray discs.

We were floored by the Denon DVD-2930CI's image quality, but we were also floored by its high price.

Denon DVD-2930CI Review and Prices

 

If you're looking for a DVD player that will deliver the best picture quality without going for a true high definition HD or Blu-ray player, then the Denon DVD-2930CI is probably it. Unfortunately, such performance doesn't come cheap. The DVD-2930CI is...

HDMI upscaling to 720p, 1080i and 1080p, excellent audio reproduction, SACD and DVD-Audio compatible

Very expensive, larger than most budget priced players

Denon DVD-2930CI Review

 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending some time with the new Denon DVD-2930CI which uses the Silicon Optix Reon HQV chipset. The review took place at my good friend Raj Birbal's ‘Home Cinema Entertainment' in Alpharetta Georgia. I have to say it was...

I’m starting to really get why Denon opted to sit out the format war, they are able to continue to justify the price of premium DVD players, without breaking a sweat over which side to pick. Speaking of the format wars, I've decided what would make for...

Worth the Price - Debatable

 

I purchased the Denon 2930CI because I have approximately 250 DVD's - I stopped counting a long time ago. And, honestly, I did not want to rebuild my selection of movies to some HD format (e.g., Blu-ray or HD DVD). When I purchased the Denon 2930Ci,...

Excellent Upconversion to 1080 P, Great Audio

The high price

Product Specifications

The DVD-2930CI uses the latest 10-bit I/P converter "REON-VX" developed through a joint development effort that merged image processing algorithms of Silicon Optix, and Denon video technology on the foundation of an image processing device. This 10-bit processing offers high conversion performance and dramatically improves motion detection capability. Multi-Directional Diagonal Filter (MDDF) technology, used for the first time in the DVD-2930CI, which accurately detects and corrects the directionality of lines on a per- pixel level to avoid "jaggies" that easily appear when video sources are I/P converted, ensuring smooth picture play- back. To ensure that high-grade video signals from the latest high-performance I/P con- verter are reproduced with utmost fidelity to the original images, the DVD-2930CI has an extremely fast and accurate 12-bit, 216-MHz video DAC. Oversampling of 8x for Progressive and 16x for Interlaced signals results in sharp, detailed pic- tures. Composite, S-video and component signals each have their own dedicated video DAC, a design that enhances the reproduction of low-level video signals and reproduces high-definition images that are faithful to the original. In addition, Noise Shaped Video (NSV) technology is used to improve the S/N of video signals and further boost their linearity. The Denon Pixel Image Correction feature that incorporates original Denon enhancement technology and makes high-definition video correction possible, has been advanced to even greater heights in the DVD-2930CI. Denon Pixel Image Correction performs detection and correction through 10-bit processing to significantly improve contour correction. This new contour correction circuit uses enhancement-processing technology that also considers the influence of pixels surrounding the target pixels. It uses new algorithms to sample and analyze a total of 9 pixels of video data around, and including, each target pixel. Video images are detected and processed in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal directions at a highly detailed per-pixel level to produce contours that are visually more nat- ural and processed to suppress ringing noise and other artifacts that easily occur during enhancement. By performing the type of processing that is most effective for the current video image, the picture is free of degradation and appears more natural.
