Denon launches DVD-A1UD universal Blu-ray player (29/12/2008)
Denon, one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment products, is planning to release its long-awaited top-of-the-line universal Blu-ray player, the DVD-A1UD, in March 2009. It joins the award-winning reference class AVP-A1HDA pre-amplifier and the POA-A1HD 10-channel power amplifier in the company's flagship HD home entertainment system.
The DVD-A1UD lets users enjoy not only Blu-ray discs at the very highest level but also Super Audio CD (SACD), DVD-Audio, DVD-Video and CDs in the impeccable picture and sound quality that is expected from a Denon player. With the combination of the newly developed, proprietary 4th generation Denon Link in conjunction with HDMI transmission technology, digital signals from discs can be transmitted with negligible jitter to produce a pure, high-quality sound, and the world's first fully-balanced two channel transmission in a Universal Player has been made possible for analogue signals.
Hirofumi Ichikawa, president of Denon said: "Further advances in digital signal processing technology have been improving the quality of pictures and sound played from packaged media. As the industry's first universal player with Blu-ray, the DVD-A1UD is the successor model for the Denon DVD-A1XV universal DVD player that featured a newly-developed, high-accuracy mechanism based on a wealth of expertise in digital playback technology that Denon has accumulated since the advent of PCM recording. Such advances have come not only as a result of improved chip performance but also serious manufacturing demanded by systems delivering Hi-fi picture and sound quality. Denon has combined its analogue and digital signal processing technology and precision mechanism engineering to reproduce the delicate aesthetic details of video and sound recorded on the disc. The DVD-A1UD universal player with Blu-ray embodies not only new concepts that have been applied to Denon's wealth of technology and expertise, but it has been completed with considerable passion. We urge all devotees of home entertainment systems to experience the best that Blu-ray as well as DVD-Video/Audio, Super Audio CD, and CD can offer."
Denon is planning to release the new DVD-A1UD across Europe in March 2009 at a suggested retail price of £3,299. It will be available in a premium silver and a black colour finish to add perfectly to either existing Denon AVP-/POA- or AVC-A1HD A/V components, or other manufacturers' home theatre systems.
