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: 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: 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: Unless I just got a bad player, the Denon #3800 blu ray is not at all a player I would recommend. I have a Sony BDP S-500, which I was placing in another room and bought the Denon to replace it in our main room.
Summary: This is a my opinion type of review, but they fall well short of actually supporting the best sound format in SACD. The PS3 does this for $500.00. An Oppo 980H supports SACd and it's DVD multiplayer with DSD acros the HDMI cable. I know it's not Blu-Ray, but it only costs $170.00.
Summary: this is the best bluray player i ever had i got sony bdp-s1 also pioneer bdp-95fd and this denon tops them all. video quality is incredible and dts master audio with dolby tru hd and looks very nice with my denon avr-4308ci reciever. asta la vista. recommended 150% chao
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.
