When it comes to what type of DVD/Blu-ray player you should get, there should be several key questions. One, do I enjoy the best quality? Two, do I not mind paying for the quality? Three, will I be using this for a surround-sound unit? If you answered yes to all of these, then I would highly recommend going with a Denon Blu-ray disc player.
If price is not an issue for you, then I would also highly recommend the Denon Blu-ray Disc Player with 1080p. This Blu-ray disc player is the Mercadez-Benz of Blu-ray players, providing a user with everything and anything he could need or expect from a Blu-ray disc player.

Denon Blu-ray Disc Player Specifications
First, the best part about the Denon Blu-ray Disc Player 1080p is the warranty terms. For both parts and labor, every customer is given a one-year warranty! This shows the company’s realistic competence in its products. However, the compactness of the product is perhaps its only drawback. At five and one-half inches (5 ½”) high, seventeen and one-eighth (17 1/8″) wide, fifteen and three-fourths (15 ¾”) in depth, and a whopping ten (10.3) pounds in weight, this Blue-ray is a heavy load and hard to fit in a tiny place. This unit, like all other Blu-rays, can play on a DVD. It can hold one Blu-ray or DVD disc at a time.
The Denon Blu-ray disc player also offers a multitude of different playback formats: BD-ROM, DVD, DVD-R/RW, CD-R/RW, MP3, WMA, DivX, and JPEG. Each of these formats is played back in high definition output with a maximum output resolution of high definition 1080p, giving it one of the best pictures in the business. The Denon does, in fact, have a Dolby Digital Recorder and a DTS Decoder. However, it does not have a Media Card Slot or a USB Port, meaning you cannot input a USB into the Blu-ray unit to upload data.
The Denon Blu-ray Disc Player also has one Optical Digital Audio Output, one Coaxial Digital Audio Output, and four individual Audio Outputs. The video outputs give this unit a great advantage over others, one Composite Video Output, one S-Video Input, and two-component Video Outputs. The Denon does not have an IEEE 1394 FireWire Port and no DVI Output. However, it does have one HDMI Output. The actual video circuit is a 10-bit video circuit, the Realta sxT2 HQV, with 24 fps. The sound card is DTS-HD surround sound with a Dolby True-HD.
The price is the primary drawback of this unit. It is going to cost you, brand new, about two-thousand dollars ($2000.00).
This is the best purchase as far as Blu-ray disc players. It does provide the user with anything and everything he could expect from a DVD/Blu-ray player. It gives the best video and sound output, allowing for the best experience while watching a movie or even just regular TV! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a great picture, great sound, excellent warranty backing, and easy use.
