Summary: I jumped for this machine basically because of the Denon brand name and the great reviews. Well, in terms of sound and picture quality, this thing is no better than most low to average priced bluray players.
Summary: I lusted for one of these to add to my elaborate home theatre, but the MLP of around $2,200.00 put me off. I was able to get one for far less, bought a demo Lexicon MC-12 processor (list $14,000.00 but got for less than a 1/3 of that) and the picture and sound quality I enjoy on my 115" screen w/HD...
Summary: I purchased this Denon DMP-3800BDCI Blu-Ray player from an authorized Denon dealer (Listen Up Audio Systems - Colorado Springs, CO) who apparently bought out the remaining stock on this item from Denon. It retailed for $1999 and was purchased in Dec 2009 for $560 + tax.
Summary: Well, so much for profile 2.0 features. Thus far they have been a gimmick. Enter the extremely well priced 3800. The video is first rate with proper calibration with good dimensionality and color saturation.
Summary: This player is incredible. I have the top of the line hd toshiba player and a sony blu350 or some pile. This thing kills them both in every way. This unit sounds about 1000 times better then a cheap sony bluray player. Picture looks awsome and the sound is insane.
Summary: My friend and I purchased a Denon DVD-3800BDCI on the same day. We both agreed it made SD-DVD look like Blu-Ray. Blu-ray movies from both video and audio were fantastic. Collectively my friend and I own & have owned some amazing equipment.
Summary: This has been an awesome purchase! Fantastic picture quality, and easy to use. I had a Sony Blu-ray player (and I typically love Sony products), but this Denon is far superior. The load times for movies is significantly faster as well.
