    Are you talking about passing a 24/96 Khz signal via the digital output? If so, it maybe like most players in that it can´t. It downsamples to 48Khz. You would have to use the analogue outputs to hear the 96Khz signal. My old Panasonic A360 could´nt pass 24/94 digitally neither can my Toshiba 210 or 900.

    Pioneer dvd players can and I think there are a couple of other makes.

    Thanks Jase,

    You are probably right, but then there are deceptive specs on their page:

    "Supported disc sampling rates up to 48kHz/24 bit (Toslink) 96kHz/24 bit (co-axial) "

    I am quite disapointed with this, the first flaw I found on my Arcam DVD players, I had the DV88 before... :(

    I wish, but it has so few options, and none looking like that... Just PCM or bitstream...

    John,

    Thanks for your reply, you know I am one of your DVDs fiercest suporters, but I was disapointed to find out the FMJ27 doesn´t output 24/96, as it is mentioned in your page...

    Well, what can I do, but wait for that upgrade, but only if it outputs digital, standard digital, whatever it will be...

    I still think my DVD player is top value for money, but none is perfect, lets wait and see...

    Best regards,

    PS - your mail box is full...

    Hi Antonio -

    I've cleared some space if you wish to talk further. Trouble is, I don't like to junk old but interesting correspondence :)

    Well, one more question,

    I thought the player would just output what is in the disc thru the digital connection, what kind of processing does it do when you are not using the internal DACs... :confused:

    Also, what will the DVD-Audio option do to fix this shortcomming, assuming it will also output digital... :confused:

    Lowrider, the only players I know of on the market place that can pass a pure 24/96 PCM signal (from relevant 24/96 DAD encoded discs) are :

    Sony NSV 900 DVD-V/SACD
    Pioneer DV-636, DV-646, DV-717, DV-737, DV-747.
    Denon DV-1600 DVD-A, 2800, 3300, 3800 DVD-A.

    If anyone else knows of any Id be happy to know of them dudes.

    These Im sure I have read reviews of that confirm this, latterly in HFN in the case of the Denon 3800 via its S/Pdif output from 24/96 or a multichannel downmix of DVD-A again I assume at 24/96 (but the reviewer does not state).

    I was sure the Toshiba SD-900 could do this also but evidently not, although ICBM. As for the type of processing (PCM of Bitsream) a player does Ive read in reviews that most players these days ‘auto detect’ when a CD is playing and will send a PCM signal & conversely change to bitstream for DVD-V. But in my case I have to manually select linear PCM mode and the range of output required ie 48khz or 96 khz. This is my experience wit the Pioneer but Im sure Arcam is different, it would be nice to know (John) If Arcam does offer this facility as the Arcam DVD-V players are highly thought of without the need for personal email of course it is a information board IMHO.

    CJ,

    I think the new pioneer656a will feed a DAC ok.
    I also emailed philips about the philips Q50 dvd player and if it could output a 24/96khz signal along the digital coaxial connection.

    this is the reply.

    'Dear Mr Burton,

    Thank you for your recent e-mail.

    We apologise for any inconvenience you may be having.

    It is possible to switch the digital coax out fixed on 96KHz/24 Bit.
    The short answer is : Yes!!'

    _____________________________________________


    If it works doesnt that make it the cheapest player on your list with 24/96khz output and 54mhz video dac?
