I looked at the DV-47A today. My dealer told me that the Pioneer rep told him to expect another SACD/DVD-A player to join the line-up this summer. It was described as having the build quality of the old DV-09 model, big and heavy, and an approximate $2000 price tag. I was suprised how slim, small, and light that the 47A was. I'd say it weighed no more than 12 pounds...? I did't audition it for sound as I'm not serious about buying one. I did play with a demo model hooked to an Elite 520 set. A copy of GLADIATOR was in the player. It looked really good at a glance. I was sitting too close to the set and I didn't see any blockyness. I may buy my first Elite DVD player yet, but I'm waiting to see the 47A's, as of yet unamed, big brother.
