    I'm on the Audio Revolution newsletter and just received their latest issue in my inbox today. Here's what they had on the new Onkyo player:

    I don't have any use for this, but I remember a couple of people discussing this player last week. Enjoy!

    Rich- I'd bet $750.

    Anyone know if Analog Devices NSV Precision Video 108 MHz/12-bit video D/A converters will have the chroma bug? Do Onkyo DVD players now have it?

    And, from the back, looks like it's made in Japan. That's a good thing.

    No info on bass management yet...

    Kevin,

    The Analog Devices parts you mentioned are Video D/A convertors, and will have no effect whatsoever on the presence or absence of Chroma bug.

    I suspect that this and the Yamaha players are based on the Pioneer DV-47A OEM Kit.

    They Yammie will include deinterlacing via the Faroudja chipset, so it has the potential to mask any effects of the chroma bug.

    I don't know which deinterlacing solution the Onkyo employs, but the DCDi logo was not on the front panel.

    Yes, the Pioneer MPEG decoder (I think it's a Mitsubishi part) has chroma bug.

    Regards,

    Anyone heard of a release date for the Onkyo or Integra universal player?

    Looks good! I would put that player on my list if I was in the market for a SACD/DVDA player.
    But I'm happy for now with my Sony 775/Pan RP91 combo. Both of these only cost $650.[​IMG]

    My local Integra dealer said the 8.3 is suppose to be out this month. Maybe it won't be such a long wait afterall. Of course, we still don't know how this unit will perform......
