Crikey!, @£1500 wound't you just get a decent BD player and a shack load of BD Discs that don't need upscaling in the first place. Your value score seems way out!!, yes it makes old tech DVD look better, but come on.

@Keith, I was about to say the same thing. I may sound like a luddite to the audio/videophile types, but surely even the most impressive DVD players are passé by now?

What you said Keith actually makes a lot of sense however I suppose if someone has amassed a large collection of DVDs over the years then it might be worth it to them.





Otherwise I have to admit I fail to see the point especially at that price.

To those who say this is expensive. I think this should be compared more to a high end audio product than a dvd player. The rrp for an arcam solo music (not the inferior mini, but the full width zversion) is £1,250. If this box can match that for audio and play upscaled dvd then it's a winner. I suspect though that it may suffer from the same as the arcam 5.1 dvd, also £1,500 which loses a lot of it's musical ability for the visual benefits.

@purephase: Believe it or not, I'm not bashing the price per se. There will always be high-end kit aimed at the well-heeled that mere mortals can only drool over. I always enjoy reading articles like this, call it 'aspirational' perhaps. It just seems that if you spend £1500 on a DVD player, any DVD player, you're investing in outdated technology, which doesn't strike me as a sensible purchasing choice in anyone's book.





@Matthew: True, but I reckon that if someone's got the cash to spend £1500 on a DVD player (or even a Blu-Ray player) they probably have the means to purchase a sizeable Blu-Ray collection.

That has to be one of the ugliest pieces of hardware I've seen in a long time. Why three (unstable) feet. - Looks like something from Trotter's Trading Company!

I suspect the DVDi10 is intended for those with a large CD and DVD collection and a TV to match who haven’t made the jump to full-on Hi Fi or mega-channel home theatre (probably for space or aesthetic reasons) but can appreciate quality all the same.
