The Denon D-X1000BD takes the company into a new product area, a two-channel Blu-ray mini home theatre system.
The Blu-ray player/receiver component of the system plays Blu-ray discs, including those with BD Live capability, plus DVDs and CDs. In the front are two USB ports, one supporting iPod/iPhone digital direct play and the other accommodating USB memory.
If you want to listen to the system via headphones, the inbuilt Dolby Headphone signal processing provides 5.1 channel surround sound through any pair of headphones.
The player/receiver pushes 70W to each of its two channels, through Denon’s CX stereo series speakers.
Add an optional Denon ASD-51N/51W docking station, and can access network streaming content.
