Denon Releases a New Universal Blu-ray Disc Player

Posted Mon Sep 21, 2009 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Based on their flagship player, the Denon DBP-4010UDCI is a more affordable, but still impressive, Blu-ray player.

Nearly half the price of the flagship DVD-A1UDCI, Denon’s DBP-4010UDCI is a very capable Blu-ray player. Denon’s player offers Bit Stream Bypass to HDMI for Dolby Digital+, TrueHD 7.1, dts-HR, and dts-Master Audio 7.1, making it fairly impressive in the audio department.

From a video perspective, the 4010 features Anchor Bay VRS processing for HD signals and for upscaling to 1080p. The DENON LINK interface, and a new HDMI Clock Control help to eliminate jitters when using HDMI as the primary output for the system.

In addition to AVCHD and DivxHD playback, the 4010 features an Ethernet port for BD-Live support among other things. The Internet connectivity can be made usable for 3rd party controllers as well as for firmware updates and web surfing, and an SD card slot ensures ease of use for additional content.

The Denon DBP-4010UDCI will be available this October at an estimated retail price of $1,999.
