Review: Denon DVD-2500BTCI Blu-ray Transport


Whatever you do, don't call it a DVD player. The Denon DVD-2500BTCI is a Blu-ray Transport, which is Denon's fancy pants way of telling you...

Impressive audio and video quality. Solid build. Eliminating analog connectors and processors reduces complexity and, theoretically, the possibility of interference. Disc playback resumes after powering off

As laggy at loading discs as most other Blu-ray players. Overly large, badly balanced remote control. Unit is relatively slow to pick up on remote control commands. A thousand bucks can buy some pretty nice speakers or go a long way toward a TV instead

Denon DVD-2500BTCI Blu-ray Player – Benchmark

Denon DVD-2500BTCI


If you're ready to dive all the way into Blu-ray, or already have, then this player definitely deserves to be on your short list. It's price is quite high when compared to players with more overall features, but the support for the Blu-ray format...

Denon DVD-2500 BT


Excellent HDTV picture with 24p support., HD audio output as a bitstream., Video equalizer., SD-card reader.

Poor DVD de-interlacing., No decoder for DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD., No BD-Live.

We weren't able to give this player a meaningful overall rating, since its lack of analog outputs and separate digital-audio connections meant we couldn't carry out the full evaluation. For high-end home-theater, the Denon DVD-2500 BT thrilled us with...

Denon DVD-2500 DVD-Video Player Reviewed


Sort of a "poor man's DVD-5000" the DVD-2500 delivers all the performance of its larger sibling, with deliciously solid lower registers and a well-balanced harmonic texture that fits easily into a variety of systems, the DVD-2500 ranks as a great value...

Aside from that, the audio performance was excellent. I've had some occasional audio dropouts with advanced audio soundtracks from quite a few Blu-ray players I've used, but not this one. Lossless audio playback was uninterrupted, and PCM audio (once...

Denon DVD-2500BT review


The Denon DVD-2500BT is a great way to watch Blu-ray discs and DVDs – a great home entertainer

Excellent Blu-ray performance in every regard ; excellent DVD playback ; classy build quality

Only a transport, so it won’t be for everyone ; only Profile 1.1

A great way to watch Blu-ray discs and DVDs – a real entertainer

Denon DVD-2500BT review


Blu-ray for big boys

Stunning Blu-ray picture ; Very good with DVDs ; Faultless build ; A joy to use

Needs high-end AV amp and top-end display device ; No SACD/DVD-A ; No Denon-Link ; Not Profile 2.0

Low price doesn't have to mean a dodgy spec, as this fantastic Denon blu-ray spinner proves
