    I don't know what either stat means or if I will be able to see a noticeable difference between the two.

    Could somebody please give me a basic description of what these mean?

    Here's something I wrote a long long time ago; take it for what it's worth.


    Every DVD player has some form of upsampling. The 54MHz/10-bit video DAC in the RV80 upsamples the DVD's native 13.5MHz/8-bit data. This "oversampling" provides legroom for extra bits of resolution to be processed and interpolated. In layman's terms, the image is displayed with precision, and is thus improved.
