Well it's actually the Panasonic DVD-RA671 , and it's progressive scan. Note that I can't read the specs either... they're in Chinese. OK, I haven't been able to test this machine, but I have seen it with my own eyes in the store (Jinan, China). It looks exactly the same as my RP91, although it doesn't say it is DVD-RAM compatible. Too bad I'm not in Beijing, because I have Region 1 discs there. The sales guy states that it is PAL and NTSC (he thinks) but I dunno if it converts between the two. (No guarantee that it does, since most TVs are both PAL and NTSC here, so there is no need to convert.) It is MP3/CD-R/CD-RW/VCD compatible. It does support 192/24 and DVD-Audio. It does DTS and AC-3, and it may support MPEG surround as well, but I can't remember for sure. It's supposed to be Region 6, but he claims it is all region. While I didn't have a Region 1 disc to test in it, it seems that several DVD players from name brands come all region straight from the factory... Otherwise they wouldn't be able to compete, since 99% of DVD discs are bootleg around here, and some of those are region locked Region 3 or whatever. (eg. The official party line of the Pioneer DV-5310KD I'm looking at to complement my Panasonic RP91 is region 6 according to Pioneer, but in actual fact is all region.) Currently it's selling for 3600 RMB (US$435). Hope this helps. ------------------ Eugene Hsieh, VisorCentral FAQ Editor 1000 km on a tank of gas??? Check out the Prius and drive the future now!
