SlashGear Week in Review – Week 40 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 40 2008

Biggest news this week has been in gaming, with Nintendo announcing the latest iteration of their DS handheld.  The DSi introduces new multimedia features - for instance a 3-megapixel camera - and an even thinner body, at the expense of battery life.  Don't get too excited, though; the US won't see the DSi until "well into" 2009.

In netbooks, ASUS slipped in a few new models at both the low and high-end of the market, with the Eee PC 900HA and 904HA offering bargain 160GB storage while the S101 corners the more-fashionable (and expensive) end.  That's a niche the ASUS N10 already occupies; that netbook ran the review gauntlet this week, proving "technologically clever" but simply too expensive.  ASUS - and MSI, whose Wind U90 was panned too - must be looking enviably at Gigabyte's M912M convertible touchscreen netbook, which was good enough to pull a credit card from the wallet of one reviewer.

Denon low cost Blu-ray player is not that affordable

Denon Electronics has announced that they will begin shipping a lower-cost Blu-ray Disc player next month. The new DVD-1800BD only supports Bonus-View (profile 1.1) and bitstream of all HD audio codec including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio but guess what. It is retailed at $749!

Denon Postponed Flagship Blu-Ray Player DVD-3800BDCI to March

Denon Postponed Flagship Blu-Ray Player DVD-3800BDCI to March

Denon is pushing the release date on the $1,999 Blu-ray player further to March. The flagship DVD-3800BDCI announced back in July 2007 featuring onboard DTS-MA decoder and 7.1 analog outputs was suppose to make its first appearance last Fall. It was put off to late December due to Denon uncertainty in Blu-Ray forecast, which I doubt it has anything to do with Paramount decision to back HD-DVD exclusively…Right! It will be a great match-up against Marantz BD8002 which will be released around the same time; we just have to wait until Spring break. The delay doesn’t affect Blu-ray transport DVD-2500BT. But hey, I'm all for it if that is what it'll take to add a RJ-45 (profile 2.0... but in my dream)

Denon C551 earbuds, quality sound from a well known name

If you don’t mind paying for better sound quality, then you’ve probably already heard of Denon, on the other hand if you do, Denon is well known for their home theater components, namely their receivers, amplifiers, pre-amps, all that jazz. Well they also, every once in a while, make a set of earbuds.

Previously they had the C700, and now they have the C551, which other than being 2 millimeters shorter, also has some punchier mids. What they have in common is the Acoustic Optimizer, a reflex port for your headphones, it keeps the air pressure balanced and makes them sound better.

This device is amazing, especially if you live in a confined space. So it comes with the main receiver unit two stereo speakers and a subwoofer. However, it offers up virtual surround sound through those two stereo speakers.

On top of that it has an upscaling DVD player that will upscale up to 1080p for you. There is an HDMI port for that to play through and there are USB ports for connecting media players, thumb drives, so on and so forth. The best news is after the jump.
