10 June 2009
  • Summary: The Denon DVD-3800 produces some of the finest pictures known to man. It's a shame it costs the Earth, and weighs almost weighs as much...
  • Pros: Picture and audio quality are both outstanding.
  • Cons: Blu-ray players don't get much more expensive than this.

Denon DVD-3800BD

What Hi-Fi?
13 May 2009
  • Excerpt: We originally reviewed the Denon DVD-3800BD well before many other Blu-ray players came onto the scene. So, it is interesting to see how it handles the pressure of the newer players. The machine boasts typical Denon robustness in the form of a multi-layer heavy-duty chassis. Inside the player you'll find individual circuit boards for video and audio, a 12-bit 216MHz video DAC, Denon's AL24 audio processing and accompanying high-grade audio DACs.
  • Pros: Virtually bomb-proof build-quality, pictures show great contrast and good definition
  • Cons: Only profile 1.1, colours a little overblown compared to other players, a little safe sounding

Denon DVD-3800BD review

20 January 2009
  • Summary: Despite the global gloom Blu-ray has been getting a foothold in the home entertainment market of late. Even so, Denon’s decision to launch its high-end DVD-3800BD Blu-ray deck seems brave – surely there can’t be many buyers for a disc-spinner that costs twice as much as most TVs? But the DVD-3800BD hasn’t been created to sell by the bucketload but to push the boundaries of Blu-ray performance.

Michael D's Region 4 DVD

  • Excerpt: Denon seems to be in the habit of releasing "lite," "budget" or "lower-specced" versions of their flagship products, to target potential buyers who may be lusting after the top-of-the-line models but can't afford them. Generally, the "cut down" version will try and retain as many of the features of the flagship model as possible but with a number of compromises in return for a much more affordable price.

Denon DVD-3800BD

2 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Zaawansowany technologicznie odtwarzacz Blu-ray Denona waży aż 10 kg i został wykonany bardzo solidnie. Jego potężna obudowa (w kolorze srebrnym lub czarnym) jest wielowarstwowa, ponieważ ma redukować drgania i eliminować zakłócenia układów elektronicznych, mogących mieć negatywny wpływ na jakość sygnału. Urządzenie wyposażono w dopracowany konstrukcyjnie, z ekranowanym czytnikiem, napęd (S.V.H.), który pracuje bardzo szybko, cicho i stabilnie.
  • Pros: Doskonały obraz, Referencyjna jakość dźwięku, Wyjście analogowe 7.1
  • Cons: Brak obsługi BD Live, Wysoka cena
