Excerpt: Denon is a dependable brand when it comes to AV electronics. Doing its best to cover the full spectrum of price categories across AV amplifiers, Blu-ray players and much more, the company invariably stands for solid and stylish build quality, extensive specification, and a dependably high level of performance. However, Denon hasn't managed to provide that extra sparkle to take top honours with its recent Blu-ray players. The DBP-1610 is looking to change that.
Pros: Good list of features, solid styling and build, easy to use, good insight, smooth motion
Cons: Lacks a little weight to sound and edges could be sharper, no multichannel outs
Excerpt: It's not like Denon to sell on price, well, not a low one anyway. From the company that brought us the £13,000 AVP-A1HD AV pre-power amplifier system comes its latest 'affordable', fully-featured, Profile 2.0 budget-busting Blu-ray player, the DBP-1610.
