Inputs and Outputs Notes
Overview: The Denon DVD-1930CI
is a single-disc, progressive scan, universal DVD player that will play
DVD-Audio and SACD.
The Denon DVD-1930
is a "universal" player, which offers playback of both ultra high-resolution
multi-channel audio formats: DVD-Audio and SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc). Both
formats, with their wide frequency responses, capture subtle details that make
music sound richer and more real.
This unit can play the following types of discs:
DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Video CD, Audio CD, and Super Audio CD (SACD). In
addition, this unit is compatible with CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, and DVD-RW discs, as
well as MP3, WMA, and JPEG files recorded on CD-R, CD-RW or CD-ROM discs.
According to the manufacturer, this unit can also play DVD+R and DVD+RW discs,
although compatibility with these discs is not mentioned in the manual.
Automatic Detection of Discs:
This player automatically detect if a loaded disc is a DVD-Video, DVD-Audio,
Audio CD, Super Audio CD, MP3, JPEG, or WMA.
Dual Discrete Video Circuit:
The DVD-1930 uses a 12-bit 108 MHz video D/A converter for interlaced video and a 11-bit 216 MHz D/A converter for progressive video to ensure highly
accurate playback of delicate, low-level video signals and give you a vivid
picture that is faithful in every detail. One D/A converter is used to process
Progressive signals and one is used for Interlaced signals to eliminate mutual
interference between the two types of signals.
Digital Video Upconversion (Video Scaler): This unit
features a built-in high quality video scaler that is capable of outputting
video signals in a variety of HD formats. You may set the unit to output 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via the HDMI connector.
Component Video Progressive Scan Output With
Faroudja's DCDi: The component video output can be set to provide progressive or interlaced signals. When set for progressive output, the DVD player provides 480p signals featuring
Faroudja's patented Directional Correlational Deinterlacing (DCDi). This
technology applies new motion adaptive deinterlacing that prevents the
introduction of motion artifacts and jagged edges from video signals that
originated from video cameras (such as with sporting events, live camera feeds
and music videos). The result is a sharper, noise-free picture with finer
details. Video images are displayed with optimum naturalness and color
reproduction with less flicker and fewer motion artifacts than traditional
interlaced scanned pictures.
Audio D/A Converter:
This unit has dual 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters.
Digital Audio Output Capabilities: You can select an LPCM output setting of On or Off. When On is selected and
you are playing a DVD recorded in 96kHz, the signal is down converted to
48kHz/16-bit before it is passed through the digital outputs. When Off is
selected and the unit is playing a non-copy-protected DVD recorded in 96kHz, a
96kHz/24-bit signal passes through the digital outputs. If the DVD is
copy-protected, the digital signal is automatically down converted.
Speaker Configuration: To tailor the
output of the 5.1-channel jacks to the bass handling capabilities and
configuration of your speaker system, left and right front, center, left
surround and right surround speakers can be set to "Large", "Small" or "None."
The subwoofer can be set to "Yes" or "None." The speaker distances can be set
between 1 and 60 feet in 1-foot steps. You can also adjust the output level for
each speaker between -12dB and 0dB in 1dB steps.

function to "On" for sound output on the bass-woofer channel when a 2-channel
audio source is played back. This function is effective only for the 5.1ch Audio
