Introduction

My wife often enjoyed making fun of how many optical disc players I had in my AV setup. When it was the most out of control, I had an HD-DVD player, a PS3 for Blu-ray movies, an Oppo Universal DVD player, and a Sony SACD changer for music. While DVD-A and SACD didn't catch on with lots of the public, some of us built up a collection of the titles that we want to be able to listen to, and we would like to avoid having an AV rack full of extra players like I do. While there were quite a few universal DVD players that could do SACD, DVD-A, and DVD playback a few years ago, with Blu-ray those numbers have shrunk. Denon was always one of the main competitors for universal DVD players and they have entered the Blu-ray universal player arena with their DVD-A1UDCI player. Supporting Blu-ray, DVD, DVD-Audio, and SACD, the Denon can play whatever you throw at it and let you consolidate down to one player in your AV rack.
