It seems that the current line of Malata players have been discontinued as a new line is to be introduced in a few weeks. I tried to buy the Malata N960 from AVDEALS.COM (who also goes by 4 or 5 other names on the web), but it is out of stock. I hear there is a Canadian retailer that sells Malata players mail-order. In fact, their link has been posted on this forum months ago. If anybody knows of that dealer, please let me know. I could only hope that they have one in stock. Please be aware this is NOT the 996 player I am looking for. The N960 is what I need - it is not progressive scan, but it converts PAL to NTSC and it also defeats Macrovision. Thanks for the help.
