Summary: I'm an old school audiophile, and I've been disappointed at most Blu-Ray DVD players audio capabilities. I've bought LG, Samsung, Toshiba Blu-Ray players for DVDs. Unfortunately, the Chinese electronics in these are all the same and they suck.

Summary: I purchased this item a couple of years ago ,,, right here ,,, and now ,,, I am back for another !!! I own about a thousand ,,, probably more ,,, DVD's and I don't get put-off by that "Region" stuff i.e. Canada, Japan. Europe, Antarctica ,,, well maybe not Antarctica.
Summary: I purchased this up-converting DVD player when my parents just purchased a 32" Samsung LCD 1080P. I was younger when I purchased it and didn't really do enough research, great price for the time but could have purchased something better for the money.
Summary: The DVD-1740 displays a beautiful picture on my HD television on the 1080i & 1080p HDMI settings. Colors are noticeably vivid and sharp. Disks load very quickly with no waiting/response time. Music CDs emit tremendous sound quality, especially when using fiber optic cables.
Excerpt: It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Denon products and could wax lyrical about the Denon brand until the cows come home. But I have never tested anything other than Denon audio products; with this in mind I did jump at the chance to …
Summary: If you're looking for a device to play dvds, then this Denon 1740 is great. You can never go wrong with the Denon brand. I have nothing bad to say about the dvd player My only recommendation to audiophiles out there is if you have a 1080p HDTV save your money for a blue ray player.
Summary: It's a good DVD but doens't read SACD. That's why i changed for a 1940 Denon DVD, that's read SACD and has more resources.If you just want to have a good DVD and doens't need to read SACD, Denon 1740 it's an excellent option, affordable and best cost benefits.
Summary: After three attempts at getting a midrange dvd player (mid $80 range) and not getting a single one that did not have issues, finally went up scale and found it was worth the money. Plays all the dvd without problems, loads much faster, upscaling is great.
