Denon 1910 or 2310

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am currently torn between getting a Denon 1910 or a 2310. The 1910 has the ABT 1030 processor while the 2310 has the ABT 2010 video processor. I am curious to find out if anyone can tell me in the ABT1030 processor in the 1910 will upscale HDMI to HDMI.. or is it just analog to digital??

and if it does not would it be better to hook my HD Directv up using component cables so the receiver will do an analog to digital conversion to 1080p??

very confused between the differences of the two of these processors????

Here are the major differences:

1 1080i deinterlacing: the ABT 1030 discards half of the vertical resolution with 1080i because it lacks the processing power.
2 MPEG Noise Reduction: Reduces the sparkly noise around text/borders, as well as blocky artifacts seen in motion scenes.
3 Detail Enhancment: Sharpens regions inside an object border, such as pores on a face
4 Edge enhancement: Sharpes the edges.
(BTW, 3 and 4 are very effective as they don't produces halos/ringing, although detail enhancment can slightly increase video noise, but not too bad.)
5 Frame Rate Conversion: 60p-24p or vice cersa for film sources.

Pretty much the ABT 1030 is a simple SD Scaler/Deinterlacer, while the ABT 2010 is a full fledged SD/HD video Scaler/Deinterlacer and Processor. Same as found in the $799 edge and $1299 Duo.

If you have a 1080p capable TV, I'd highly reccomend the 2010 (AVR 2310) over the 1030 (AVR 1910)

Dustin -- I have listed out all the differences between the two models in the 1st post of both the 1910 and 2310 owner's threads. Both the 1910 and the 2310 are capable of scaling any signal to 1080p, HDMI>HDMI or analog>HDMI.

I recommend you check out the owner's threads of the 1910 and 2310 and do some reading to see what owners are saying.

Whether you will see a difference between the video processing is going to depend on a variety of factors, including what types of sources you are using, how big your TV is, how far away you sit, and how picky you are. I can tell you that, on my setup (50" panny plasma, 7-8ft viewing distance) I can only tell a difference between my TV's video processing and my Denon 2310's processing on test patterns. With real program content, I can't really tell a difference and so I leave the scaler off most of the time. But, again, this is going to depend on a variety of factors.

I'm looking at the logan preface for front R , l and center.. I have the Denon 2310 receiver which from the manual can only handle 6 ohm impedance. Guy at best buy said as long as I'm not running all 7 channel at 4 ohms that my receiver won't over heat or short circuit. Is he correct?

anyone have any input please...

yea get a better a receiver to drive those speakers or be prepared to buy an external amp and don't jack someone elses thread post your own or post in the thread for the receiver you have.

As batpig suggests, whether there will be much of an improvement using either the 1910 (ABT 1030) or 2310 (ABT2010) depends on a number of factors, of which the most important is that Denon chose not to enable about half the functions in both chips including PReP (likely due to costs). If video improvement is a major requirement the Edge along with the AVR 1610 or 1910 would be the best buy for your money.

yes, resurrecting a 3-month-old thread is a poor way to get people to see your question.

in the future, the owner's thread for your particular receiver is a much safer way to make sure you can get some feedback. here is the 2310/890 owner's thread:
