Denon's powerhouse DVD-3800BD player has dazzling performance, but no BD Live

Picture sound and build quality ; Multimedia support

Lacks BD Live ; Sluggish disc loading

In pure performance terms, the Denon DVD-3800BD is one of the best Blu-ray players money can buy.

In pure performance terms, the Denon DVD-3800BD is one of the best Blu-ray players money can buy, with only the latest Pioneer decks coming close to matching it. Its superb processing, high-grade components and stunning construction result in...

Denon's flagship Blu-ray player is massively more expensive than its rivals – but can its build and spec justify the outlay?

The finest Blu-ray player on the planet. Painfully pricey, but in the right system it will astonish

We were impressed when this player was first tested and the Denon is still a good option. It just suffers against the new decks on the block

Virtually bomb-proof build-quality, pictures show great contrast and good definition

Only profile 1.1; colours a little overblown compared to other players; a little safe sounding

The Denon DVD-3800 enters the Blu-ray ring with some impressive credentials, from 1080p/24fps output via a HQV video processor and HDMI 1.3a to internal decoding of all High Definition audio tracks. There's just one thing holding it back: the price.

Picture and audio quality are both outstanding

Blu-ray players don't get much more expensive than this

The Denon DVD-3800 produces some of the finest pictures known to man. It's a shame it costs the Earth, and weighs almost weighs as much...

Denon DVD-3800BD Blu-ray Player

 

The DVD-3800bdci was the first piece that had great underground press. I had paid $1200.00 for a Sony BDP-1 I believe, and took it back the very next day, it could not do SD-DVD as well as my old Denon DVD-2910. Not too cool. I went through a series of...

It's upscale capability in SD-DVD is better then many $500.00 players in Blu-Ray, it uses the same Silicon Optix chip used in the DVD-5910ci.($3900.00) Blu-Ray is fantastic. The sound with hdmi is as good as I could hope for. Build quality seems above...

Money, a bit expensive. Had an early recall, 24fps. Denon service spotted other potential problems and are sending me a brand new A-stock DVD-3800BDCI. I guess that should be a pro? So I guess it's money. Firmware upgrades should be sent by mail with...

Let me start off by saying how horrible it is that you cannot distinguish DTS-HD HR from DTS-HD MA in the specs page. There is no such thing as "DTS-HD", but many CE manufacturers have continued this misnomer even in product literature. It is either...

Superb CD over analog, beautiful BD/DVD picture with Realta, decoding of all lossless codecs, solid construction

Does not decode DTS-HD HR, somewhat sluggish in response
