Denon has unveiled a couple of new Blu-ray players in the form of the BDP-1611UD and BDP-2011UDCI, where both of them will be able to handle 3D Blu-ray discs with aplomb, so make sure that your HDTV qualifies for 3D if you want to take advantage of this feature. Of course, the support will come in the form of an official firmware update sometime this fall, so that leaves you a few more months to save up for a new 3D-capable HDTV if you don’t own one already. Apart from Blu-ray discs, it also plays nice with DVDs, CDs, high-resolution audio discs in SACD and DVD-Audio formats. Other specifications include 1GB of integrated storage for BD-Live playback, a USB port and Internet connectivity that supports both Netflix and YouTube streaming. Expect the BDP-1611UD to ship this June for $400, while the BDP-2011UDCI will hit a couple of months later for $800.
