For the discriminating viewer, a player that does not discriminate

If your universal player doesn't do 3D, it isn't universal. Add 3D to the mix with Denon's versatile DBT-1713UD Blu-ray player. Put your 3D TV to good use and bring the movie theater home to your living room with jaw-dropping realism that jumps out of the screen. But 3D is not the only format at which this sleek player excels. Feed it standard Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs, rewritable CDs and DVDs, DVD-Audio, SACDs and more to flex its muscles and keep you entertained.

Ready for surround sound?

Been looking for an excuse to add surround sound to your TV room? The DBT-1713UD may be the catalyst you've been waiting for. With built-in decoding for high-resolution soundtrack formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, this player ensures that your movies sound as good as they look. Plus, you can enjoy high-resolution audio formats like DVD-Audio and SACD for uncompromised sound quality and even surround sound from your favorite music artists. The supplied HDMI cable can deliver 1080p video and up to 7.1-channel audio to your HDMI-compatible receiver for a true theater experience.

Going the extra mile for great picture and sound

This sturdy unit handles almost any format you can find, and is designed to ensure the highest quality picture and sound out of those high-resolution formats. The solid chassis features a fully shielded disc mechanism to reduce vibration and noise for precise playback. And the fan-less design makes this player run quietly enough to enjoy movies at low volume without drowning out dialogue.

Netflix streaming and a USB port

In addition to handling a wide range of compatible physical media, the DBT-1713UD is Internet-ready, so you can stream movies, TV and music from services like Netflix®, HuluPlus™, VUDU® and YouTube®. An Internet connection also provides access to the ever-expanding offerings of BD-Live™— downloadable bonus content available on many Blue-ray discs. You'll need a place to store that digital content — fortunately, Denon provides two options: the player's built-in storage, or your own external USB device via the front-panel port. You can also use the USB port to enjoy your digital photos, MP3s, high-resolution FLAC music files, and videos.

Blu-ray Disc players — the ultimate picture and sound

Blu-ray players deliver a better picture to your HDTV than any other available source. In fact, Blu-ray's 1080p picture is a perfect match for the 1080p screens found on most current TVs.

Disc Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The Denon DBT-1713UD Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-Video, BD-3D, BD-R, BD-RE

Blu-ray Disc Compatible: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a new high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 40 mbps. Blu-ray Discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:

  • Better Picture Quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 1080/24p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
  • Better Sound Quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and uncompressed 5.1 channel PCM
  • Greater Storage Capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
  • Backward Compatible: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.

Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The DBT-1713UD is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Firmware Updates: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet, via the player's Ethernet port.

SACD: Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range - some 64 times higher resolution then CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just cannot hear on a normal CD.

DVD Audio: DVD Audio is a digital audio format that delivers high-fidelity audio content on a DVD disc. DVD-Audio supports bit depths up to 24-bit and sample rates up to 192 kHz, while CD audio is only 16-bit, 44.1 kHz. Compared to CD audio discs, DVD Audio offers considerable more music storage, higher audio quality, and additional audio channels for surround sound. DVD-Audio offers many possible configurations of audio channels (up to 5.1-channel surround sound).

AVCHD Playback: The DBT-1713UD will play home videos recorded in AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264), a high definition digital video camera format used to record in high definition or standard definition on DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW discs. AVCHD can also be played from a USB flash memory device connected to the front panel port.

DivX File Playback: The DBT-1713UD supports playback of DivX (up to DivX Plus HD) files recorded on DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW discs, USB flash memory, or streamed from the connected network. This unit supports DivX file sizes up to 2 GB.

JPEG Playback: The player will also playback JPEG still image files written to CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW discs, USB flash memory, or streamed from the connected network; image resolutions from 32 x 32 pixels to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels are supported. The maximum file size is 12 MB. The name of the folder and file can be displayed, up to 32 characters. Images can be played as a slide-show and can be rotated as needed.

Kodak Picture CD: This unit can also play JPEG files stored on a Kodak Picture CD; you can enjoy pictures on the television by playing back the CD.

MP3/WMA/AAC Playback: The Denon Blu-ray player will play MP3, WMA, AAC, and LPCM audio files written to CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and DVD+R/RW discs, USB flash memory, or streamed from the connected network. The name of the folder and file can be displayed, up to 32 characters. The following file specifications are supported:

  • MP3: sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz and bit rates of 64-320 kbps
  • WMA: sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz and bit rates of 48-192 kbps
  • AAC: sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1, or 48 kHz and constant bit rates of 32-320 kbps
  • LPCM: two-channel, 16-bit, and sampling frequencies of 44.1 or 48 kHz

Video Features

Build Quality: The Denon DBT-1713UD Blu-ray player offers exceptional build quality for high quality video and audio performance.

  • Fully Shielded Drive Mechanism: The Denon Blu-ray player employs a fully shielded drive mechanism which suppresses internal and external vibrations and electromagnetic noise for consistent, precise playback.
  • Independent Block Construction: The Blu-ray player incorporates separated 4-block construction for faithful playback of audio and video signals (Disc mechanism, Video/Audio, Power supply, and Indicator block)
  • Fan-less Design: The Denon DBT-1713UD employs a fan-less design which makes the player exceptionally quiet during playback.

HDMI Output: The Denon DBT-1713UD features a single HDMI output for HD audio and video signal transmission. The HDMI port is version 1.4a with Deep Color, x.v. color, 3D, and CEC support. Video resolutions include 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 1080/24p. There are also Source Direct (source resolution is not changed) and Auto (outputs the highest resolution compatible with the connected display) settings.

Note: This player does not feature any analog video outputs, such as component, composite, or S-video.

1080p Scaling: DVD discs, USB video, and network steaming video can be scaled, up to 1080p (60/24 Hz) from the HDMI port.

3D Ready: The Denon DBT-1713UD lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. 3D viewing requires compatible 3D content, 3D HDTV, 3D emitter & glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (supporting at least 10.2 Gbps) connection. The Blu-ray player offers several 3D settings.

  • 3D Output: You can choose between Auto (automatically determines whether the video signal is 3D or 2D) or Off (always outputs 2D video signals).
  • Screen Size: You can enter the size of your TV from 0" to 999".

Deep Color: The HDMI output supports Deep Color, increasing the number of bits available for transmission, meaning more colors. This results in greater color fidelity, smooth tonal transitions, and ultra-fine gradations between colors. It also enables many times more shades of gray, for higher contrast ratio.

x.v.Color: The DBT-1713UD's HDMI output supports x.v.Color, meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs when they become available in the future.

Progressive Mode: The Denon DBT-1713UD allows you to set the appropriate progressive conversion mode for the source video material (film or video) you are watching. You can choose from:

  • Auto: Detects the type of video material and automatically switches the mode. Normally, this setting is used most often.
  • Video: Suitable for playing video material discs.
  • Film: Suitable for playing film material discs.

  • 3DNR: reduce the overall noise level in the entire picture; 0 to +3
  • BNR: reduce the block noise generated by digital processing; 0 to +3
  • MNR: reduce the noise around the outline of an object generated by digital processing; 0 to +3
  • Contrast: the difference between the bright and dark parts of the picture; adjust from -6 to +6
  • Brightness: adjusts the brightness of the picture; 0 to +12
  • Gamma Correction: detailed adjustments of the picture's brightness; -4 to +4

  • Wide (16:9): select when a wide-screen TV is connected; discs recorded in wide-screen format are played over the entire screen

Slow Forward Playback: The unit allows Slow Forward Playback in three different speeds (1/8, 1/4. 1/2x) for BD-video, DVD-video, DVD-VR, AVCHD, and DivX discs. Sound is muted during this function.

Resume Playback: This function allows you to resume playback from the point at which the playback has been stopped on the disc even if the power to unit is turned off.

Marker: You can mark electric reference points on a disc to view at a later time. This feature allows you to assign a specific point on a title or track to be called back later. You can mark up to 12 points.

Zoom: The player allows you to magnify an image on-screen 1.2x, 1.5x, 2x, or 4x that of normal size and then allows you to pan through that zoomed image. This function is possible on DVD-video, DVD-R/RW, JPEG and DivX discs.

Angle: Some BD and DVD discs contain scenes which have been shot simultaneously from various angles. This player allows you to select from these different camera angles.

amazing picture

Written By Tony, Schaumburg, IL on Thursday, September 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After buying a the avr x2000 denon i convinced my wife to let me buy this blue ray player as well. Our panasonic blue ray that came with our 65" led already broke less than 1 year. It was the third cheap player that didn't survive. I never knew that this would really make our picture even better! Our panasonic led 65" is amazing watching blue rays.

Pros: Picture quality, very quiet, fast load time.

Cons: A bit pricey but we'll worth it!

Excellent Blu Ray player

Written By MMG, New England on Saturday, May 31, 2014

This Denon DBT-1717 Blue Ray replaced a 13 year old Sony DVD player, and wow, what a difference. Super simple set up. Excellent quality. Fantastic picture & sound on a 40" Sony LED TV with a Denon AVR-X2000 receiver. At first I balked at paying a lot for a Blu Ray player, but after seeing the strikingly cheap plastic at the local big box store, I realized you get what you pay for!

Pros: Quality product, period.

Cons: Pricey.

Love it!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy wtih the Blu-Ray Player. However, it is going to cost me more money because now I want to get a better tv to fully appreciate the quality of the picture and the sound.

Pros: The sound quality is very good after years of watch VCR tapes. (('m 67 years old so I've been watching tv for a long time.

Cons: The HDMI adapter was impossible to find locally. I wish I had known that beforehand. I would have purchased one from you at the time time I got the player.

Great Bang for your Buck!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit has done every thing I needed it to do, and exactly what it advertises. No need to spend the extra money for higher priced units.

Pros: Very quick load time. No more waiting around for disc's to load.

Cons: Takes some time/commitment to read through CD Rom to get the most out of it.

This is a great unit. The 3D is superb. It's a Denon what else would you expect. Of course it came from Crutchfield and they take care of you. Double bonus. :)

Pros: Great picture and sound

Cons: None.

Very pleased

Excellent build quality, super user friendly. Used with a Classe amp & DT speakers, this has breathed new life into CD listening. Add to that the ability to play nearly any other type of media and stream Netflix makes this a killer unit. Only snag is sometimes needs a couple attempts to connect to internet, still - I'd buy it again in a second.

Pros: Build quality CD sound quality Ease of use

Cons: Connectivity - very minor con, hardly worth mentioning
