Denon has announced the launch of a "price-conscious" Blu-ray player, the new DBP-160.

The DBP-1610 boasts 1080/24p video output and supports Deep Color as well as x.v.Color and offers 1080p scaling for normal content.

With an Ethernet port for internet access for BD-Live and firmware updates, there's full support of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Offering Divx playback as well as AVCHD playback from DVDs and SD cards, as you'd expect, the new machine plays nice with Denon's A/V product line.

Denon's idea of price-conscious may not be the same as most, however, the DBP-160 will go on sale next month for a penny under £400.
