Marantz announced DV6600 DVD player with flexible HDMI output that can do 480p, 720p, or 1080i with a push of a button. I do not understand why it is called a DVD player: this thing is capable of reproducing almost everything including DVD-Audio, SACD, MP3, WMA9, and DviX ( up to version 5.1.1 ). DV9600 features 192Khz/24-bit audio DACs. Signal to noise ratio is 115Db, sensitivity at 100DB for DVD and 98DB for CD and total harmonic distortion of less 0.004% (on CD at 1KHz). Specs are pretty impressive for a device that is priced at 52,000 Yen ( or $430 ).
