    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!

    First time i've seen a 14bit 216mhz dac in a dvd player, even the new denon's don't have that... No DCDI although the 10bit image processor is good for allowing adjustments to the picture.

    here it is translated.

    The marantz players are usually based on Pioneers players (for the video part) and indeed the Pioneer DV-868AVi-S, which has been around for a while already, features a 14bit 216mhz dac

    You might want to have a look here to know more about the uk release of the new Marantz players :)

    More information and beautiful pictures on Avbuzz

    Nice pics can also be found on this site

    Me too, I still prefer Gold! Black is to old-fasioned and dull, silver looks cheap.
    (I don't know why Denon has stopped offering gold on their new European models, I don't think it's based on market research :mad: )

    Chances are it won't make it to Europe in Chamapagne. It seems that you gold lovers haven't actually bought enough stuff to warrant bringing it over. Silver and black according to my press CD.

    Hi,

    I was wondering (hoping :D ) if you're allowed to post pictures from this press CD of the new Marantz lineup?

    Can you tell us if the DV9500 will have two Scart sockets?

    Thanks

    No I can't post pictures (I don't know if I'm allowed for a start and it is also a pdf which makes image cropping tiresome).

    It seems to have a single SCART on the rear panel.

    The Japanese version wont use scart but im sure the Eurpean versio will.
    In Japan we use Compnent and D4.
    More recently DVi and HDMI

    D4 unless u alredy know is a japan only digital conection.

    Pronounced "Dee Tanshi",

    It goes from D1 to D4. 1 being 525i, 2 being 525P, 3 720p and 4 is 1080i
    There is even a D5 on one of Victors (JVC) tvs that offer 1500i!!

    I thought D1 - D4 was just analogue component via a different connector?

    No, the D stands for Digital! We use it to conect Digital tuners to our TVs and DVD players to TVs as well as The X Box. PS2 and Gamecube all have "D tanshi" cables available.
    As far as I know, it is a digital cable, then again they could be lying to us!

    The full name of the connector is EIAJ RC-5237 “D Connector for Digital Broadcasting Component Video Signal connection”

    It carries analogue component video.

    cber is right, the d(x) connectors are analog and not digtal
    (well D1-D4 are any how)

    The marantz video section is all pioneer but the audio section is uprated to marantz standards.
    so that will leave the denon 5900 with the better pic for sure while the audio will probaly be close.

    Mind you the 5910 will be this ones competer by the time its released
