Reference player geared towards analog audio users
 
PROS: Superb CD over analog, excellent bass management, beautiful BD/DVD picture with Realta, decoding of ALL codecs, solid constructionCONS: Sluggish in response, expensive, not BD-Live 2.0 although some would call this a plus!I've owned this player for nearly a year now and have watched a lot of the bugs get fixed through firmware. UPDATE: Decoding of DTS-HD HR (as of 1.115 firmware 11/24/08) is now included. Owners in forums were slow to pick up on this due to HR bein...

Outstanding Blu-Ray and CD player
 
I purchased the Denon 3800BDCI as I was looking for a "high end" Blu-Ray player that was also capable of playing SD DVD's and CD's. Having a Denon 4308CI as an AV processor also made this player an optimal choice for my system. Blu-Ray discs used in connection with the review included Home Video Essentials HD Basics, The Golden Compass, 2001, 10,000 B.C., Blade Runner (5 disc), Adventures of Baron Munchausen and Celine Dion's A New Day. Various SD DVD's and CD's were also used.The...

For Videophiles Only
 
If you're looking for a high-quality "set and forget" Blu-ray player, this one is not it. This is a player for someone with the time and inclination to fiddle with numerous arcane settings in the quest to get the ultimate picture. Out of the box, the player's performance does not impress. Default settings are suboptimal - it's going to look worse than a base-line Sony until you tailor it to your display and environment. Once you get past that, the player is capable of delivering spectacular ...

El Perfecto
 
I got this player a week ago and I am totally blown away, and my TV is only capable of 1080i! (I won't be able to replace my TV until next year.) Two things struck me immediately, aside from the incredible detail, which beats the 1080i broadcasts that I am getting. The first was the colors. They are just dazzling! But it isn't because they're over-saturated or anything like that. It's like I'm seeing a variety of pastels that I've never seen before from my TV. So far I've looked mainly at nature...

The Best BD player you can get now!
 
PROS: Superb CD over analog, beautiful BD/DVD picture with Realta, decoding of all lossless codecs, solid construction CONS: Does not decode DTS-HD HR, sluggish in response, expensive I've owned this player for over half a year now and have watched a lot of the bugs get fixed through firmware. One thing still missing is the player does not decode DTS-HD HR (as of 1.104 firmware August 1). It also does not decode DTS-ES 6.1 and DD EX 6.1. However, it does bi...

Best Picture and Sound I've Ever Had
 
There are a lot of incorrect video settings that could make the picture look washed out. (I know, because that's how mine came out of the box). When I looked over the manual, and adjusted the settings...WOW! I've previously owned the following units: Toshiba HDA1, Panasonic BD10, Sony PS3, Denon 2500, and a Denon 3910. The Denon 3800 blows them all away. No contest what-so-ever. With Blu-ray discs, the picture is flawless and the DD True / DTS MA audio is pristine. The...

Top of the line dissapointment
 
After spending 2K for Denon's DVD 3800 BDCI the trouble began. I watched my first movie (SpiderMan 3 Blu-Ray) all went well. A week or two later I tried to watch Cloverfeild and 2001 A Space Od. NO GOOD.Both movies started to stop and play at random, not a good thing. Went to Denon website, there may be a fix, upgrading the firmware. However I must ship the unit to Denon in NJ, worse yet I'll have to pickup the shipping both ways ($45.00 each way). Unit should have an ethernet c...

Excellent Blu-ray player with one caveat
 
The Denon DVD-3800BDCI is an excellent blu-ray player. It features the best audio and video components.On the audio side, it features the Burr-Brown DACs PCM-1796, which is the same one featured in the Denon AVP-A1HDCi. It has internal decoders for 7.1 Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA. Sound quality is outstanding whether it is TrueHD, DTS-MA, LPCM, or just 2.0 CD.On the video side, it features the Silicon Optix Realta chip, which is also featured in the Denon AVP-A1HDCI. It ca...

Best Hi-End Blu Ray Player To Date!
 
Just to name a few, it has the best video processor on the market to date, hence the Realta sxT2 HQV chip. Dual 32-bit floating point DSP, Burr Brown PCM-1796 audio decoders for all channels and Advanced AL24 Processing for greater dynamic range , and it mates very well with my Denon AVR-4308CI receiver. The problem with most reviewers rating this product giving it a negative review is simple. You have to know how to properly calibrate this player in order to max out its potential, and provided...

A Disapointing Blu Ray
 
Unless I just got a bad player, the Denon #3800 blu ray is not at all a player I would recommend. I have a Sony BDP S-500, which I was placing in another room and bought the Denon to replace it in our main room. The initial picture from Denon was not nearly as sharp the details seemed to have faded away. The colors were muted, never vivid. I went through the setup menu and then "a-b" the two players, something I was not expecting to do. The difference was overwhelming. The Sony was almost three ...
