Denon DBP-1611UD Universal Blu-ray 3D Player

March 9, 2011

Brandon DuHamel has posted a review of the Denon DBP-1611UD Universal Blu-ray 3D player ($399) at Blu-rayDefinition. His conclusions:

Despite a few setbacks early on with disc compatibly issues, I found the BDP-1611UD a pleasure to use. It has quick disc loading times and very snappy BD-Live response times, probably due to its on board memory. I still would have liked to see a built-in SD card slot in addition to the USB slot and built-in wi-fi, for a player with a $399 price tag. The lack of a more robust array of internet services is also a bit of a letdown, when other manufacturers are offering far more, often for less, with just as good or even better Blu-ray or DVD playback. Still, the Denon does what it is supposed to do and that is offer a pleasing high-definition picture, more than acceptable DVD playback for folks with a sizable DVD library, and 3D support for the new Blu-ray 3D titles that are beginning to hit the store shelves, all wrapped up in a player that looks and feels like a quality machine.
