Because sometimes you don't need a full 9.2 channel setup.
Just because you're watching on a smaller TV, or in a less open space doesn't mean you don't want top notch audio quality from your Blu-rays. That's why Denon launched the new D-X1000BD Blu-ray system.
As an amplifier, it pushes 70 watts to two channels. It supports Blu-ray discs, CDs, DVDs, and features two USB ports in the front – one for iPod and iPhone digital direct play and the other for flash memory. You can upgrade the unit to work with network steaming content as well.
Denon's Blu-ray system also acts as a competent headphone amp, including Dolby Headphone, which delivers 5.1 channel surround right to your headphones. It's a fantastic setup for those times you want a more singular experience.
Two speakers are included with the system, both of which feature Denon Dual Layer cone technology – also used in the high-end CX stereo speakers.
The D-X1000BD will be hitting the UK this September at a price of around $1,250. There's no word on a US release date as of yet.
