Re: ML 502 Media Console
Saw it @ CEDIA in a private room (it was actually guarded!) and then saw and heard it @ CES. I am not sure what version HDMI it is going to have, at CES it was supposed to be HDMI 1.2, but the news on the pre/pro now says 1.1.
Either way it won't decode any of the formats from bitstream, you will need the player to send MC PCM to it. It's a great looking unit, and actually cheaper than the No. 40. We @ AVRev.com are supposed to be getting one in for review soon so we'll let you know in detail soon what we think of it!
