At CES in 2006 Denon stated they will wait for a winner before producing a player. My guess is they will make a dual format player if they decide to jump in at all.

From July's Home Cinema Choice in UK

Denon's Brand Marketing Manager Jun Igarashi Said
" the xbox 360 going to HD DVD is an important advantage for Toshiba"
" he admires Sony for the way the company tries to 'touch everything' "

But while Denon currently refuses to take sides on the blue-laser debate Igarashi said
" The customer is used to the concept of a single player that can play all formats : DVD,CD, DVD-Audio and SACD. And we want to make a product that the customer really wants"

- Wait and see i expect, I would love to get a Denon High Def player, by the way the new amps coming out look sweet, yet expensive

AVP-A1HD AV - THX ULTRA2 DOLBY TRUE HD & DTS HD MASTER AUDIO £5K

POA-A1HD - THX ULTRA2 10Channel Power Amp £5K

AVR-4308 - DOLBY TRUE HD & DTS HD MASTER AUDIO £2K

All have wireless networking capabilites built in, they look sexy

Start saving now!

At a Denon product training I attended last week, the Denon trainer said they would be releasing a BD player. He may have said fall release, but I don't remember for sure.

Default Denon Blu-ray Player on the Way?

Some more info: from blu-ray.com

" In a recent interview with ListenUp.com, Jeff Talmadge from Denon stated that they would announce plans for a high definition player as early as July, but no format was given. When you couple this information with the fact that Funai (who recently announced a Blu-ray player for this fall) makes DVD players for Denon, and that D&M Holdings, the parent company of Denon, is now an adopter of BD+, it appears that the Denon player will most certainly be Blu-ray.

This information, of course, is all speculative right now, but we hope to hear more from Denon in the upcoming months about their future high definition plans "

Both D&M and Funai are also on the HD DVD promotion group. Willing to bet Denon will release a dual format player.

Here's the latest HD DVD promotion member list:

A Denon dual format player would cost probably like $5,000 lol
