Suffers from serious technical flaws and high cost

Summary: I've been a long time Denon fan, but unfortunately, the DBT-1713UD shows that Denon is a mere shadow of its former self. I first purchased this unit as a refurb, and it was a dud right out of the box. Ok, it happens, right?
Summary: I just received my new Denon DBT-1713. My first impressions after opening up the box was a solid and sturdy piece of equipment. The unit is rather large but blends very well with my new Denon AVR-X5200W. Set up was a breeze and running the Firmware update immediately is a must!
Summary: Bought this through another seller locally as a replacement for my Denon 2500BTCI which has served me well for the last 4 years. The 1713UD is a fantastic replacement thus far after about 4 months of use. I like the fact that it has a network connection for streaming and real-time firmware updates.
No component video output. Playing audio data files requires video monitor.

Summary: No component video output. Cannot play audio data files (e.g., MP3) unless connected to a video monitor. No headphone jack. Lacks basic audio controls (e.g., shuffle) on device. Fails as a standalone audio component. Device is essentially dependent on HDMI video connection and remote control.
Denon Remote App only works using Denon xx13+ series AVR's

Summary: Be careful if you're counting on using this Player with the Denon remote App. This does not work with our Denon 3312CI even though that receiver works great with their Denon App. Purchased this explicitly for using via IOS app with just like our 3 other Denon receivers, very disappointed as this is...
