Denon DVD-2500BTC

We were excited to see Denon's new Blu-Ray Transport, the DVD-2500BTCI, at the CEDIA 2007 expo.  This is a product we can't wait to get our hands on for testing, and it's fall release will be highly anticipated by many Denon fans.

The DVD-2500BTCI is a leading edge Blu-ray Disc Transport that allows owners of advanced A/V receivers to add Blu-ray capability to their system and enjoy high definition video.  The DVD- 2500BTCI will natively output an HD audio bit-stream to a connected receiver via HDMI.  Once this signal is accepted in the receiver, it can then be decoded into its native format including Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio.  
 
In keeping with the guidelines mandated by the Blu-ray Association for BD-ROM Profile 1 version 1.1 players, the DVD-2500BTCI will incorporate a secondary audio and video decoder.  This allows for simultaneous playback of a secondary audio and video track which may be used for interactive audio and commentary and for picture-in-picture capability (respectively).  Additional information (subtitles, audio streams, camera angles, trailers, games, etc.) can be downloaded from the Internet via computer and stored on a SD card that the player will accept.  This content can be played with the original content of Blu-ray Discs.   The DVD-2500BTC will carry a MSRP of $1,199 and is scheduled to ship this fall.

Over the years J. has constantly found himself to be an "early-adopter," spending way too much money on "new" technologies such as Compact Disc, LaserDisc, and DVD. He is one of the few people who actually purchased (and still owns) a CORE programmable remote control (bonus points if you remember this product).
