When it comes to blu-ray players, the philosophy of Denon must be the more the merrier. It seems that they want to cover a wider spectrum of blu-ray shoppers. Well, relatively speaking of course, since if you are shopping for Denon blu-ray players, you are far from the average Joe. For the discriminating audiophile with deep pockets, the DVD-A1UDCI has all they could want. For those who want exceptional quality at a more modest price, the DBP-1610 is more up their alley.
So, what about those who want something much less expensive that the DVD-A1UDCI, but a bit more refined than the DBP-1610? Do they have an option? They certainly do. The DBP-2010CI would be perfect.
The DBP-2010CI has all the hallmarks of Denon workmanship. The firm, sturdy build quality of the machine quickly sets it apart from the flimsy, poorly constructed players from other manufacturers. The DBP-2010CI is a profile 2.0 player. It does all the decoding of the lossless audio codecs, as well at bitstreaming them to your receiver to decode if you prefer that.
What’s great about this player is that it has an ABT VRS processing chip. This dramatically improves the upconversion of standard DVDs, making them look as good as there will ever look. On the audio side of things, the player comes equipped with Burr Brown DACs. Essentially, your CDs will sound fantastic with this player.
The Denon DBP-2010CI is a great choice for anyone looking for a reference blu-ray player that also doubles are an audiophile worthy CD player. You simply cannot find anything in this price range that offers more.
