Is this player worth a look? I certainly hope so. New in Japan, (where I live) it offers a 14 bit 216mhz Video D/A converter, DVD Audio, SACD, HDMI Output and new to any DVD player ive seen is the DTS96/24 support. http://www.marantz.jp/he/products/hometheater/dvd/dv9500/index.shtml (Its a Japanese web site.) So far this is the nicest DVD player ive seen in Japan, I just hope I can find a way to multiregionize it! Take a look at the pics, The champagne gold colour that is most widely used in Japan sure beats the boring old black or silver used in the US and UK!
