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.
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.
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.
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®, Hulu®, 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.

Awesome!! That's all that needs said
Pros: Great!! Great
The Denon 1713 runs circles around my Panasonic Blu-ray. Don't get me wrong, the Panasonic is very good. My movies never looked and sounded better!
Pros: Great audio and video.
Plays Blue Ray DVD very well
Pros: LIke design and it is easy to operate.
Cons: Should have WIFi. Shoud have addition connections to be backward compatible with old home theater systems.
After a year of trying to get this Denon to work I am giving up. It loses connection to the internet constantly. I took it for repair by the manufacturer and was told that it is defective and that Denon is due to come up with a fix. It seems to me that the fix is to be downloaded but since it cannot be connected to the internet it has become useless.
The Denon DBT-1713UD blue ray player was a great upgrade for my theater system. It replaced a Sharp that was several years old, so it may not be a fair comparison, but both picture and sound are far better than from the Sharp. Resolution is far better, and sound from audio CD's is much cleaner. The Denon also boots up much more quickly and reads the disc faster. It gets to playing the movie in a fraction of the time the Sharp required. The manual is on CD, so I just loaded it to my netbook for handy reference.
Pros: Easy to connect and set up, and it's internet ready. Got it on sale around Christmas at a great price.
Cons: Really can't think of any.
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!
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.
Awesome piece of equipment. I have never been disappointed with anything Denon makes.
Pros: Lots of features. Great picture.
THE best player i have bought to date! Great quality build, silent, and awesome picture quality. You get what you pay for and this is worth every penny.
Pros: Solid Build quality, load speed, looks!
Cons: Nothing whatsoever
Great buy, Denon always makes great products
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.
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
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
NICE BLU-RAY PLAYER REALLY FAST TO TURN ON LOAD A DISC AND START WATCHING A MOVIE. IT WILL ALSO PLAY 3-D MOVIES . GLAD I PURCHASE THIS BLU-RAY PLAYER TO GO ALONE WITH MY DENON 1912. ONCE AGAIN THANKS CRUTCHFIELD FOR THE GREAT GEAR YOU HAVE TO OFFER!!!

Blu-ray Disc: Blu-ray provides these key features and advantages
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. This Blu-ray player is 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.

Solid reviews [ IAN Dec 16, 2015 ]
Hulu Plys us now available. Still no Oandora. Tony Y [ ROGER A Dec 17, 2014 ]
This device supports steaming for Vudu, You Tube and Netflux only. No Pandora support. Tony Yocham [ ROGER A Dec 17, 2014 ]
NO [ JAMES R Dec 17, 2014 ]
I think so, as long as you can connect your receiver to your internet service provider (cable box or satellite box) using an ethernet cable. The connection will not work wirelessly. I have never streamed Pandora, but I stream radio stations via internet all the time (I have never used the FM radio -- it's just easier to stream). On the receiver input choice screen for internet radio, Pandora is one of the listed options, so I guess you would go about connecting to Pandora like you would any station you wanted to stream. Sorry I have no experience w Pandora. Hope this helps. [ ROBERT V Dec 17, 2014 ]
No, it comes with Netflix, Youtube, Hulu and VuDu, but no music apps like Pandora. [ DEAN Dec 17, 2014 ]
