Denon launches ultra compact, high quality, one-box Blu-ray wonder
August 2010 – Denon, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment products that is celebrating 100 years of innovation and technology leadership in 2010, has announced the company’s first two-channel Blu-ray mini system.
Following the successful launch of the high-end Cara one-box Blu-ray system, the DX1000BD offers serious audio and video quality with bespoke Denon engineering. Based on Denon’s experience of delivering separates quality in one compact body, the system’s main unit is equipped with proprietary technologies from the company’s renowned stereo and home cinema products. It features a “Simple & Straight” circuit design with minimum signal paths, and an independent block construction with a shielded chassis for best playback quality of all content.
The powerful mini system offers 70W across its two channels and supports a variety of digital media such as Blu-ray Disc (including BD-Live), DVD and CD. Moreover, it offers two USB ports with one at the front supporting iPod/iPhone digital direct play and the other, USB memory. Through the optional Denon ASD-51N/51W docking station you can even upgrade the RBD-X1000 with network streaming content. For a very private listening experience, the Blu-ray receiver features Dolby Headphone, a revolutionary signal processing technology that delivers 5.1 channel surround sound over any pair of headphones.
The perfectly matched speakers offer serious hi-fi quality using technology from Denon’s renowned high-end CX stereo series. They feature high performance Denon Dual Layer (D.D.L.) cone technology, with a ventilation hole for the perfect acoustic balance.
With this system, listeners can even enjoy breathtaking surround sound with Dolby Virtual Speaker, another signal processing technology that delivers 5.1-channel surround sound from just two speakers. In case there is a need for additional bass, the system may be upgraded to 2.1 channels by attaching a subwoofer to the available pre-out port.
Next to the versatile connectivity and the extraordinary sound quality, the new mini system shines with hardly any set-up requirements and easy operation. You just connect the receiver to the speakers and the show begins. The D-X1000BD detects every media automatically and automatically selects the optimum playback mode, meaning total convenience. The system remote control has clever ‘quick select’ buttons and a cursor navigation to help easily make adjustments if needed. An intuitive graphical user interface elegantly adds to the ease of use.
The D-X1000BD will be available in a glossy black finish from September priced £800.
