Disc Compatibility: The Denon DBT-1713UD Blu-ray disc player
is compatible with many disc types:
||BD-Video, BD-3D, BD-R, BD-RE
DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW
||CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, SACD
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
- 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

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

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
