Denon is introducing a high-end DVD player with 1080p upscaling. The DVD-3930 (pictured above) incorporates Realta T2 HQV silicon with Terranex algorithms and is compatible with Super Audio CD and DVD Audio discs.
Other features include proprietary Pixel Image Correction (DPIC), AL24 Plus digital audio processing and a Gigabit DenonLink3 for superior digital audio. Build quality involves heavy anti-vibration construction, with a double layer lid, triple layer bottom and heavy transport structure, five Burr-Brown 24/192 audio DACS and 14bit 216MHz Video DACs. Denon spokesman Rob Follis says “It’s my opinion that the HD-Disc launch is a disaster, the early machines are dogs and the content is rubbish. Just say no to dodgy HD formats and buy a serious DVD player instead!”
The Denon-3930 is expected to sell for 1,100 pounds.
