Noise shaped Video™ and DCDi Progressive Scanning
NSV DCDi Logo This technology, from Analog Devices, uses oversampling and advanced techniques such as multi-bit sigma-delta processing and bit-shuffling to improve converter performance by moving converter noise to an area of the spectrum where it can be removed by an analog filter. This improves the accuracy of signal representation, allowing images to be displayed at much higher resolutions.

Other advanced technologies used to maximize image quality are Faroudja DCDi Processing, Motion Adaptive Noise Reduction, Cross Color Supression, Aspect Ratio Conversion and TrueLife Enhancer.

216 MHz/12-Bit Video DAC
This new high performance video DAC ensures superior image quality with all video sources.


Exceptionally Good sound Quality
This model delivers sound quality that is superior even to some more expensive players. It uses a high performance 192kHz/24-bit audio DACs.

Audio Direct Mode
Selecting the Audio Direct mode cuts the video circuitry out of the signal path, so there is no chance of it affecting the sound quality. The front panel illumination is also turned off to prevent noise interference from the LCD.


Bass Management
This player provides Bass Management processing and a subwoofer/bass management output terminal. Bass management is important for DVD Audio and Super Audio CD multichannel playback, as it properly routes the bass frequencies for best performance from a multi-speaker home theater system. With normal 2-channel (stereo) CDs, the bass frequencies are routed to the subwoofer, so you can enjoy "2.1" channel sound with more powerful bass.

RS-232C Interface
An RS-232C interface is provided so this player can be controlled via computer in a custom installation.

On-Screen Display with GUI (Graphical User Interface)
This model makes operation extremely simple by displaying a variety of clearly understandable GUI menus right on the TV or monitor screen. It's easy to select and adjust any desired function with the remote control.

Three Wide Screen Modes
Three modes can be selected for optimum viewing on widescreen monitors via HDMI output: Non-Linear Stretch, Pillar Box and Zoom. Non-Linear Stretch helps minimize distortion of a 4:3 picture by trimming the top and bottom to make it closer to a 16:9 picture.
