If the Xbox 360 can offer DVD playback at 1080p, so can Denon. Their freshly released DVD-3930 DVD players can take your old Lion King DVDs and upscale them to "near HD quality" at 1080p. We'll skip the fancy tech mumbo-jumbo like Pixel Image Correction and Silicon Optix Teranex HQV technology.

How much will this new-age trickery cost you? 1099.99 ($2,072). But think of it this way, you're paying a dollar for every 1,000 pixels. Huge bargain!

DISCUSSION

The model number for the US release is the 3930CI. It goes for approximately $1300-$1500. The 2930Ci also outputs a 1080p signal, via a different and less expensive Silicon Optix chipset. The 2930Ci can be found for 600-800 bucks.If you are willing to drop some coin, these are probably the best and last DVD players you will buy and quite a sound investment if you want ot maximize the potential of a very large collection of DVD's.
