Marantz is scheduled to deliver new high-end DVD player that also features HDMI output and can scale up to 1080p among with 720p and 1080i. In addition to be a DVD player (which I can speculate can handle DVD-Audio) is also capable of playing back SACD material.
It is equipped with 10bit video scaler IC, most likely to match DWIN's video processors, as well as 24bit video DAC. That's high precision.
The price is 1400 EUR (about US $1750) which is about what I would expect.
No other information is available at the moment, or at least I could not dig it out.
On the side note, Marantz is a Japanese company that became famous for its audio equipment and in recent years it is in video market as well with DLP projectors and Plasma monitors.
