How else would you solve the Jitter problem in a full digital scenario, including DSD, over HDMI?
BDT 3313 is still in their product line with getting highest ratings of users, even those switching from OPPO.
EDIT: You are right, Blue ray players have disappeared from the site, this must have happened just during the last days. It was still there, last week.
Would love to see a worthy successor.
They first removed the 1713 within the past month or two. They removed the player section entirely within the past week or two.
I didn't even realize the 1713 was 5 yrs old until one of the responses pointed that out.
I can understand Denon taking a break from BluRay players for a few years since they were feature complete and heading towards end of life. What could they have possibly done in a 1714?
I guess they ran the numbers and figure people are getting 4K content from streaming services, torrents, etc.
Every new TV is 4K now, AVRs are all 4K, 4K BluRays are out, but no 4K channels yet.
I did the 1 month Netflix trial to try out the 4K service and I was not impressed at ALL. I'm not even sure why people do Netflix streaming at all. The service stinks. Nothing but old content. The 4K content was severely limited.
As I said in my original post, only Sony, Samsung, Oppo and Panasonic make players now. Then some of the consoles do it as well. Guess its not really a big thing, so Denon hasn't jumped in.
Dunno why they have 10+ AVRs out though... that doesn't make sense either.
