Summary: I purchased a DBP-1610 Blu-Ray player approx. 1 year ago. Have had play problems since the start. After sometime into various movies, the video and audio would pause, start, pause, start, etc. I performed a firmware update on it thinking it was perhaps an easy update would cure the problem.
Summary: Probably there're better cost-benefit blu-ray players out there, but this is a player for those audio quality is what matters. Video quality with blu-ray discs and DVDs are very good just like others in the market, but its audio quality thru its analog stereo channel is among the pigeons.
Summary: I love this product. All dvd's come to life. I am a huge fan of denon and cerwin vega. My stereo systen and surround is all denon and vega. I know it has a price tag, but you really get what you pay for. It is worth every penny.
Summary: I am pleasantly shocked. I bought this primarily for a second sound room (aka man-cave) that I'm building. I needed a good CD player primarily and thought decent video would be nice too. 99% of the plan was for audio, 1% for movie or concert DVD.
Summary: At the current price ($325.00ish) the 1610 is a nice player with good Blu ray playback (same as their 2010) and pretty good SD dvd up conversion. I tested about 200 titles and it played them all! And I had no freezes to. For the money it is a good Blu ray player with a high end image...
Well built and attractive, but high price and low featureset

Summary: One must wonder where the street price will land on these in a month or even weeks. In a competitive landscape where quality 7.1 analogues are below $300 (ie 320), lightning speed and quality upconversion are below $225 (JVC), and netflix and pandora streaming are available for $200, how a denon can...
