Anyone seen one or got one? If so what have you got it hooked up to and what is it like?
Contemplated getting a Bravo D1 a few months ago - lets face it, @ $200 one can't really go wrong.
US transformers fitted though (110v) so either a mod or step down transformer required & only Reg.1 compatible
Would have been trying it with a HS10.
Any news on the new DVI equipped Samsung?
Here's some notes I've collected together after a few mins of surfing:
o In one of the threads on AVS there is an A/B comparison of a LOTR scene displayed 720p (DVI) and 720p (Component). Even though the pic is low res its no contest for me. DVI looks much sharper... But it might be that the photographer wasn't using a tripod etc:
- 480i Component
o It seems that all these players are based around a new Sigma motherboard.
o General consensus is that they all are pretty poor for non-DVI output, but DVI is quite an improvement (apparently) over component.
o Large pic
o Momitsu DVD homepage
o Spec in English here
o Translated review here (Thanks Cybersoga)
o Giant thread in AVS Forums here
o Couple of threads here on AVForums. here, here, here
- Plays just about every format under the sun
- Not sure if it has English menus?
- Seems to be multi region hackable
- Price is very cheap in USA (220-299$ or something like that). Can be purchased via PriceJapan but quite expensive (360+$ + vat + duty)
o D1 Homepage
- Nice looking remote
- No divx support?
- Multiregion not possible ATM. Doesn't sound like it will be either from their FAQ
o Tapani's thread here on AVForums
o Good AVS thread on the german clone here
o Link to shop in Germany that sells it
o And another online store (cheaper, 225e)
o PDF datasheet
- Multi region
- Cheap! No vat etc
- I think it might be out of stock until 9th June? My German is non-existent!
(I think there's a samsung (931) player too but it seems to be having problems with red blotches on DVI output at 720p so I've not yet researched that one.)
