Denon's DBP-2010CI delivers jaw-dropping picture and sound from high-definition Blu-ray discs. Its cutting-edge circuitry effectively eliminates noise from the video signal for pristine reproduction of your favorite films. Movies come alive with rich colors and remarkable depth. And your regular DVDs will look better than ever, thanks to a new upconverting chip from Anchor Bay a company well known for their high-performance processors. This player also includes five user-adjustable settings that let you tailor the picture to your liking.
The DBP-2010CI's audio and video sections are separated into independent blocks in a highly rigid chassis to reduce interference. The audio section can decode the newest surround sound formats, so you can enjoy master-quality Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks with just about any home theater receiver. If you're looking to reduce the number of components in your entertainment rack, you'll be happy to know that the DBP-2010CI is an impressive CD player, too. It gives you dedicated stereo outputs, plus high-quality digital-to-analog converters that accurately reproduce the subtle nuances in your favorite tunes.
Other features include BD-Live and BonusView support for a variety of bonus features with compatible Blu-ray movies. This extra material can range from commentaries and behind-the-scenes footage to online games. A slot on the front panel makes it easy to plug in an SD Card for saving downloaded BD-Live material. You can also use the DBP-2010CI to display digital photos on your TV screen. Or, watch DiVX® videos pulled off the web and the AVCHD home movies you've filmed with your high-def camcorder.

I read some of the early online press releases on this player and it was definitely worth the wait, both in terms of value for the price and performance versus Denon's 1st generation Blu-ray players. It has certainly lived up to my expectations. Blu-ray discs look great as well as DVDs (which look better than they did on the 1930CI that formerly handled the DVD duties). Load times are also acceptable -- maybe not the fastest available but certainly not painfully slow like other players. I'm also very pleased audio wise. I have an older 3806 receiver that doesn't decode the new HD formats and the decoded PCM output from the 2010CI to my receiver does the trick. Buy one, you'll be happy you did!
This the best DVD Blue-ray I have had.... This is my third Blue-ray and I am very pleased. Denno is always good and this one sure is.
