Denon DVD-3930CI DVD Player

 

The DVD-3930CI was another surprising release from Denon. Just as the DVD-3910 seemed to obsolete (in a practical sense) the DVD-5900, the DVD-3930CI takes the spotlight again... almost.

480i and 1080p via HDMI ; HDMI output autoformatting ; Unsurpassed video performance ; PAL/NTSC support ; INDEPENDENT bass management over HDMI and analogue audio output

High retail price ; Makes DVD-5910 owners feel like they got ripped off

Denon DVD-3930

 

We investigate a player from Denon that can handle DVD as well as CD surprisingly well - that's the DVD-3930.

Delivers superlative video and uncommonly strong audio across all formats

Lacks built-in test screen for colour set-up for the best in tweakability

Denon DVD-3930

 

If you're too scared by the format war to buy either a Blu-ray or HD-DVD player, Denon believes it has the perfect solution: a high-end DVD deck, the DVD-3930, that converts standard-def DVDs into hi-def.

Sound, Upscaled pictures

Value

Expensive considering it only plays standard-definition discs

Denon DVD 3930CI - DVD player

 

Didn't know how much difference a good player makes with my DVD's. This one showed me the light. It's big, it's bulky, but boy what a blast to use. Hooked up with HDMI, Logistic universal remote controls it, and I just sit back and watch movies with...

Denon DVD 3930CI - DVD player

 

I had high-end 60lb $2500 Sony SCD-777ES SACD player and Oppo 971 DVD player. Due to upgrade to a new Blu-ray player, I need an extra space so decision is to consolidate the SCD-777ES SACD and Oppo 971 DVD into one high-end SACD/DVD player. I tried out...

Denon DVD 3930CI - DVD player

 

When I was on a market for the good DVD player the Denon 3930CI was a clear choice. It was consistently rated as the best DVD player one could get. After using the player with DVDs of various picture quality I can only confirm it. I tested it against...

Product Specifications

The DVD-3930CI uses the 10-bit I/P converter "REALTA" developed through a joint development effort that merged image processing algorithms of Silicon Optix, Inc., and Denon video technology on the foundation of an image processing device from Teranex, a manufacturer of video processing for broadcast use in the United States. This 10-bit processing offers high conversion performance and dra- matically improves motion detection capability. Regularity in pixel-level patterns are rapidly and accurately detected not only in the 3: 2 patterns of film sources but in other patterns as well during I/P (Interlaced/Progressive) conversion. Even when sources contain both Video mode and Film mode material, each mode is detected and processed accurately at high speed. Flicker caused by detection delays is avoided, and Progressive playback with high picture quality is possible from a variety of discs. The DVD-3930CI's video circuit features Denon's own DDVC technology designed to enhance the quality of video signals. The use of dedicated circuits - one independent block for composite and S-video signals, another block for component signals, and a dual DAC configuration with built-in video encoder - has made it possible to reproduce detailed video images with greater precision. In order to bring out the maximum quality from both video and audio signals, the DVD-3930CI has a discrete configuration in which the video, audio, and digital blocks that comprise this universal player are all completely isolated from each another in terms of their circuit configuration, boards, and power supplies. Denon engineers have used the expertise gained from their development of earlier universal players to design a configuration that thoroughly suppresses mutual interference among the circuits and prevents noise from affecting the video and audio signals. 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-3930CI has an extremely fast and accurate 14-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.
