    Bill, what Harley said. I am hoping the 'CP72 will do DVD-Audio. So, I guess Panasonic will stick with the 'RP91 and 'H2000 for another year. I guess there is no reason to replace them at this point.

    It looks just like the DVD-CP67 which is on Crutchfield's website. It also comes in Black or Silver.

    Is there any way to know if this has the Faroudja chip? Anyone?

    Thanks,

    Bill, thanks for the info. on the 'CP72. Some might argue that the video DAC is not state of the art. Also, 9.9 lbs. is on the light side for a carousel changer.

    I still wonder why they made the XP30 and XP50 when the RP62 and RP82 do just as well?

    Hey, it's the wrong forum, but I'm interested in news on their direct-view 16:9 34" (or any other dimension of widescreen direct-view, but I think that's the only one). I can't get much info on it locally, since Sony (and to lesser extent, Toshiba) are the only makes I can find on the island. A web-link if you have it would be nice too?

    Doug, try www.crutchfield.com for the Sony & Panasonic. Also www.panasonic.com & www.sony.com & www.toshiba.com
    I really don't know what I'm doing on a computer (I'm just an old guy [​IMG] ) otherwise I would post you the links? Maybe someone else on this forum can post them for you? or start a new thread under the tv section.

    Good enough! (Those look like links to me!) Just thought you might have some of the newest news. I'll check those sites. Thanks.

    I thought some of this stuff was pretty well understood by now. The CP-67 is basically a 5-disc version of the RP-62, and the CP-72 adds DVD-Audio to the mix. They should all have pretty much the same Sage/Faroudja video processing. Question remains whether the CP-72 has the MPEG decoder from the RP-62 or RP-82, but that won't show up in spec sheets.

    I too remain baffled about what the deal is with the XP-30 and XP-50. Is there any hint in the catalog what differentiates them from the RP-62 and RP-82?

    The Panasonic parts list shows the CP-72 uses the same MN677531KA mpeg decoder as the RP-82. The RP56 and 62 (and the CP-67) use the lesser MN677533MP.

    It certainly appears the 72 should perform the same as the 82, plus changer ability.

    But do any of these play MP3 from DVD-R?

    Panasonic does have a new HT Amp that is only 2 inches high & the design looks the same as the XP-30 & XP-50 maybe they just made these DVD players to go along with the new amp?

    After looking through the catalog I did find this on the XP-50 & the XP-30 models.
    TECHNOLOGIES FOR SLIM MODELS:
    SLIM DESIGN
    Brushless Motor
    Because there's no mechanical contact with the commutator, the high-percision, thin brushless motor eliminates the problem of abrasion, thereby helping to assure high reliability and durability.
    SLIM DUAL LASER PICKUP
    Using one objective lens with two laser units having different wavelengths optimized for DVD and CD reproduction, this advanced pickup can also play CR-R/RW discs. And it's just 14mm high. It's also light, due to the plastics objective lens and the plastic base holding the lens.
    SHELL CONSTRUCTION
    Despite being thin, the new Clam Shell construction assures high rigidity. By supressing vibrations and resonances, this contributes to playback with consistently high picture and sound quality.
    HIGH CAPACITOR
    This new developed capacitor uses a composite mica powder paper separator. This improves electrical characteristics to further assure high sound quality.
    CONCERT MODE
    VIDEO: Increases the luminance during dimly lit scenes and reduces it during brightly lit scenes to make viweing rapid changes between dark and bright scenes easier on the eyes.
    AUDIO: Boosts bass to reproduce the powerful sound and atmosphere of a live concert.
    Hope that covers all of it [​IMG]

    One of our company's directives this year is "flat and thin." The XP-30 and XP-50 were specifically designed to match our XR10 receiver. I didn't get to listen to them because the last time I saw them they were only factory mockups, so I have no idea about the sound quality, but they definitely look cool. The amp is slick. It's too bad we didn't include DTS-ES/DD-EX decoding in the XR10.

    Does anyone know whether the CP-72 has 5.1 audio out connections? JVB shows a photo of the back with only 2.1 audio outs.
    JVB
    However, Crutchfield shows it with 5.1 audio outs. I'm interested in using it for DVD-Audio with an Outlaw 950, so 5.1 outs are essential.
    Thanks,
