Denon DVD 1800bd Blu-ray Player

Introduction

 

The Denon DVD-1800BD is Denon’s newest and least expensive Blu-ray player. For the $599 MSRP you get a Bonus View (profile 1.1) compliant player with HDMI 1.3a and component video outputs, bit-streaming (not decoding) of all the latest lossless surround formats, a front panel SD card memory slot for the playback of MP3 and JPG files, and full Divx and Windows Media™ Audio playback support. Unlike Denon’s higher priced offerings, what you do not get with the 1800BD are the letters “CI” in the naming scheme. The “CI” denotes Denon’s “Custom Integration” line, which is targeted at high-end custom installers and home theater aficionados looking for a larger slew of integration options, such as RS-232 control capabilities. Also lacking is a set of 5.1/7.1 analog outputs, so the 1800BD is geared strictly towards consumers with one of the latest HDMI 1.3 equipped receivers/pre-processors with built in lossless audio decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
