FS:Denon DVD-2930CI **SOLD**


Recommended Posts

Here's one for a music lover out there:

A brand new Denon DVD-2930CI universal disc DVD player. I picked it up as a sealed, NOS unit. I opened it up to test out to make sure all functions work properly, and to take photos. This thing will play just about any optical disc out there, with the exception of Blu-Rays. It has a very good, solid build quality, and sounded very good in my testing. I played everything from SACDs, DVD-Audio discs, HDCDs, Redbook CDs (all through the 2 channel analog outs) while testing. The only thing I was not able to test were the HDMI and Denon Link audio outs.

Denon CD and universal players have always been top shelf and this DVD-2930CI is no different. Build quality is great and they are very reliable. Even if you have no use for the video features, CD and SACD playback alone with this player is worth Rick's asking price. If you do take advantage of video playback, the Silicon Optix Reon chip is still one of the best DVD upscaling chips out there.

Keep in mind, this Denon player is 99% brand new.

Rick, good luck with your sale.

Bill, thanks for the plug... This really is a great sounding unit. While the Marantz universal disc changer I picked up on Craigslist yesterday sounds very good, the Denon clearly sounds better. I did a mini comparison yesterday between the two units, playing several tracks from the same stack of SACD/DVD-A/HDCD/Redbook CDs on each machine, and the Denon sounds a bit more musical and refined, with seemingly tighter bass...

If I were not currently unemployed, I'd hang on to it for my own use. Anyhow, I have it posted here and on the Polk forum, and if it doesn't sell over the weekend it'll go on Audiogon on Monday. I am certain it will sell easily there...

I've never seen a "rating" set-up on "Garage Sales" for sales between forum members so I thought I would leave a quick note. Received the Denon very quickly, the unit is in as desribed condition. Rick is a very good seller and very quick to reply to questions. I'm very pleased with the purchase and I wouldn't hesitate to use Rick again!
