    Not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure it's Sony themselves!

    Sony make the decoding chips themselves for their budget and midrange products. I seem to remember that the high end kit, like the 777 amp and 9000 pre/power were driven by Analogue Devices SHARC chipsets. The same used in Denon's A10SE.

    I believe McCain offer the superior product in their crinkle cut chips.

    I believe you are all wrong, in-fact Sony uses the Mool-N-X processor chip-set.
