Denon details DBP-2012UD 3D Blu-ray player
Denon has revealed the details of its latest "mid-range" Blu-ray player - the DBP-2012UD. Now, as this is Denon, don't expect its definition of mid-range to be the same as yours - at £750 it probably costs a bit more than you'd expect a mid-range machine.
But, as it's Denon - you know that your money is buying a high-end product from a trusted AV brand.
The 2012UD uses the same structural and electrical design as the higher priced DBP-4010UD and DVD-A1UD models and offers "outstanding sound and picture quality plus maximum connectivity".
It has DLNA compatibility on board, USB ports for input (including MP3, WMA and DivX) and can playback DVDs and CDs, as well as 3D Blu-rays.
The model has separate audio and video circuits, "to achieve superior audio and video quality", and has Anchor Bay Technologies VRS on board, a high-bit video processor that plays Blu-rays "to perfection". It also upscales DVDs.
Audio options include a 7.1-channel analogue output with full decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio and a dedicated two channel analogue audio output, equipped with high-bit D/A converters (32bit/192kHz) for music playback.
Priced at £749.99, the Denon DBP-2012UD will be available, in black or silver, from March.
