Denon DBP-2012UD
The universal player is due out in March and will set you back £750

Denon has announced the latest addition to its range of 3D Blu-ray players, the DBP-2012UD. The player sits in the middle of the company's range at £750, and is due in stores from March.

The player was originally announced last year as the DBP-2011UD but never quite broke cover. This model, the DBP-2012UD, will now take its place.

Billed as a universal player, the unit will play SACD and DVD-Audio discs as well as 3D Blu-rays. It's  DLNA-certified for accessing content over your home network, while streaming direct from YouTube will come as part of a firmware update scheduled for Spring 2011.

A high quality DAC and video processor is said to owe much to the high-end Denon models, while you'll find a dedicated two-channel input alongside the 7.1-channel output and HDMI connections.

All HD audio decoding is of course supported, as is BD-Live thanks to the 1GB internal memory. Extensive file support includes DivX Plus HD, MP3 and WMA files.

More after the break

The Denon DBP-2012UD is available in silver or black and is due in March for £750.
