    Up for sale is the terrific Philips DVD963SA dvd player raved about in "The Perfect Vision" and "The Absolute Sound" magazines. I just did a substantial upgrade to an Arcam Diva dvd player and now must sell this player.

    The DVD963SA is the player of choice for anyone who wants top notch progressive-scan DVD playback, multichannel SACD playback, 96kHz and 192kHz CD upsampling, MP3 decoding, and CDR/RW playback.
    This Multi-channel Super Audio CD redefines high sound resolution with its Dual Laser Pick-up, built-in DSD, AC-3, MPEG2 Decoder (5.1 Output) w/ Coaxial and Digital Output and a huge torroidal transformer.

    The most notable, exciting, and useful feature in the DVD963SA is its upsampling circuitry. Audio CDs can be upsampled to either 96kHz or 192kHz making this player sound better than most mid-fi CD players from the likes of Rotel, NAD and Marantz.
