Denon has come up with two more Blu-ray players to keep us entertained in our homes during the current economic downturn, and they are the Denon DBP-2010CI and DBP-1610CI which retail for $700 and $500, respectively. Despite being that expensive, they do lack functions and features available in much more affordable players including Wi-Fi connectiivty and a streaming video application. What they do have, however, are the following :-
- Ethernet connectivity for BD-Live and firmware updates
- DivX and AVCHD playback
- Bitstream Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio
You do benefit from apparently “superior” stereo analog outputs as well as Burr-Brown digital-to-analog converters for those who still love their CD collection, but it would be a waste if you didn’t have a high end audio system to go along with this.
