Denon's DVD 1500 is a rather unusual player, eschewing RGB capability- the best way of getting DVD pictures into Tv sets in favour of high performance but little used component video system. It is good if you you have a projecter or a plasma Tv but not much good otherwise. Also unusually, given the specification of other players . The Denon doesn;t have internal surround Dolby Digital 5.1 let alone DTS. Spin a Dvd using s-video output and the pictures are impressive all the same. Colours are accurate. Sonically, the Denon is strong. It has fine bass presence from its digital output when used with a Dolby Digital or Dts sound track.
