Denon DVM-3700 DVD Players


I bought this used with a few blemishes at a rummage sale with a bunch of other Denon gear (apparently pulled out of a house for a audio/video refresh). Of the 28 I spent on it all (6 or 7 pieces), $3 was spent on this unit so as can be imagined this...

Denon DVM-3700 DVD Players


I never understood the following of Denon. EVERY SINGLE STEREO COMPONENT I HAVE EVER HAD has broken down within 3 years. Some breaks were very minor, and others were major. I had an amplifier years ago that I spent more than $1,500 and within 3 years...

Denon DVM-3700 DVD Players


This unit has always sound great and had an excellent picture. The picture started messing up, similar to the horizontal hold being stuck. This has gotten progressivly worse, until you can't watch a movie at all.

Denon DVM-3700 DVD Players


First let me say that when this player worked it was unbelievable. I bought this refurbished by Denon with a 90 day warranty. It seemed like a good deal with the 1200.00 list. Similar problems as other reviews such as skipping in the middle of play or...

Denon DVM-3700 DVD Players


When I set out to purchase a DVD player, I wanted to utilize the technology that DVD has brought to market. The ability to play CD-R's etc.. wasn't a big concern to me, as I was buying a DVD player, to play DVD's. And what a DVD player it is. One of...

DVM-3700 -- Jury still out on this one, but not great so far


UPDATE 2/20/2001: Enjoy the review below, but also not that this thing just died a big death and is in the shop, with freezes on discs, sudden jumps from disk to disk, and a noisy mechanism. Argh!

Warm, rich music sound, excellent channel separation, dynamic range

Horrible remote, unit display, slow disc changing, build quality (it died!)

Purchased this DVD-CD player largely for DVD use, the primary player for a Mitsubishi WS55857 TV, B&W speakers. The player came highly recommended by a local high-end stereo shop, who played up the picture quality and the CD audio quality. I have...

Product Specifications

The DVM-3700 provides carousel changer convenience along with a host of high performance features, to bring superb video and audio performance to a wider audience. The heart of the DVM-3700 is the 5-disc DVD changer mechanism, designed for ease-of-use and convenience. Video playback quality is assured via the use of full 10 bit video D/A conversion, along with a complete set of video outputs, including composite, "S", and component (Y, CB, CR) video outputs for connection to high performance video displays. Audio quality is superb, thanks to Denon's exclusive AL24 processing, along with HDCD decoding for the thou-sands of HDCD-encoded music CDs. AL24 Processing further reduces quantization distortion and represents the ultimate analog waveform reproduction technology designed to support the higher numbers of bits and higher sampling rate of next-generation media. Cinema Position Selector Optimizes the picture quality according to the specific type of display device, such as Standard / CRT Projector / LCD Projector / Projection TV.
