Onkyo has introduced the DV-CP802, a six disc progressive scan DVD changer that is compatible with almost all current disc formats in use today, including DVD-Audio and multichannel SACD high-resolution audio formats.
The six-disc carousel includes the company's blue-illuminated tray light for disc recognition. It features a 108-Mhz/12-bit video D/A converter for video clarity and detail, and progressive scan component video output with 3-2 pulldown capability. In addition to the component video output, there are both composite and S-video connections for compatibility with nearly all televisions, and all video outputs are continuously active.
The DV-CP802 features 192-kHz/24-bit audio DACs with Onkyo's Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) for smoother, more detailed analog output. Onkyo's Direct Digital Path ensures maximum integrity of Dolby Digital, DTS and PCM audio signals to the rear-panel digital outputs. There is a multichannel analog audio output, including a defeatable second set of surround channel connections for use with 7.1-channel home theater systems.
The player is also compatible with DVD, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, JPEG/Picture CD, and CD-R/RWs encoded with MP3 or WMA files. The Onkyo DV–CP802 six-disc changer is currently available in both black and silver at a suggested retail price of $500.
