    It's going to be profile 1.1 minimum and expect this unit in Q1 2008. Price TBD.

    Looks like they are going high end with the integrated Realta VP. I would guestimate $3000+.

    Looks like it is based on the Denon 3800 design.

    Looks very nice. Possibly the best looking one so far. But does it really need to be so big?

    The Marantz and Denon machines are likely to be more similar than different.

    Both companies are owned by D&M Holdings. And they may well come out of a Funai factory.

    I suspect the Marantz will have more ‘audiophile friendly’ components. Here’s hoping that Ken Ishiwata get’s to work his magic over the UK/European version…

    Whats with the "DTS HD Raw Data"? is that just "Master Audio"?

    And the realta chip, is that just for upscaling DVDs to 1080p?

    The raw data is bitstream over HDMI as far as I know, so this player will have no internal decoder for True-HD or DTS-MA.

    Yet more choice cant hurt.

    Any more news on this one?

    I don't suppose it will support SACD and DVD-audio?
