Product Details

Denon Universal Black Blu-ray Disc Player, Model DVDA1UDCI

For the ultimate disc playback accuracy, Denon’s DVD-A1UDCI sets the standard in state-of-the-art audio and video reproduction. Denon’s exclusive design allows playback of popular high resolution audio formats such as SACD and DVD-Audio, and is BD-Live Ready (Firmware update available approx. July/09). Your CD collection will never sound better, thanks to Denon’s new AL32 advanced digital audio processing, which upconverts conventional 16-bit CDs to full 32-bit digital format, virtually eliminating low-level harmonic distortion in the process. For pristine video quality, the Silicon Optix Realta HQV processor provides superb DVD deinterlacing and upconversion to HD, along with sophisticated picture improvement algorithms. Featuring balanced stereo analog outputs, the DVD-A1UDCI is equipped with true 32-bit dual differential D/A converters for each channel, along with a full set of conventional analog 7.1 outputs. The dual parallel HDMI outputs can also be assigned with HDMI Pure Direct Mode, with one HDMI output for audio and the other HDMI output for video with higher digital clocking accuracy and improved jitter control. For installation and configuration flexibility, the DVD-A1UDCI features RS-232C serial control, and BD-Live functionality via Ethernet connection.
