Denon DVD-3800BD High-End Blu-ray DVD/CD Player
Denon have taken the wraps off their new, high-end Blue-ray player, the Denon DVD-3800BD, which, thanks to the utilisation of a 10-bit Silicon Optix sxT2 HQV Realta chipset (the DVD-3800BD being the first Blu-ray player to use this particular chipset) results in what Denon term as being their first ?reference-standard? player.
Apart from the 10-bit Silicon Optix sxT2 HQV Realta chipset, which offers advanced scaling an video post-processing for both Blu-ray and DVD formats, the DVD-3800BD offers 1080p HDMI 1.3a output with 36-bit Deep Color support and ?new higher-quality? Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio courtesy of Denon?s D.D.S.C.-HD circuitry paired with Dual 32-bit floating point DSP Burr Brown PCM-1796 audio decoders as well as Advanced AL24 processing allowing for greater dynamic range.
Offering support for Blu-ray, DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW and CD Audio discs as well as MP3/WMA files (via CD-R/RW and DVD-R/RW), JPEG/Kodak/Fuji photo disc support and, naturally, full DiVX 6 compatibility, the Denon DVD-3800BD will begin shipping from December (08) in silver, ?premium silver? and black for around ?1600 (roughly equating to around $2448 at the time of writing).
